This a German company who designs high quality guitar amps for touring musicians and the average consumer. They guitar amps that range from just a few hundred dollars to several thousand. These amps have a loyal following from many varies musical genres. This amp crosses some genres with its musically versatility.

This amp has four channels. You get a clean, crunch, lead, and ultra lead. You also get a sparkle booster and a boost for the crunch. This amp is for the British style voicing. You are going to get really a nu-metal or modern metal tone from here with out a little work EQing it up. It naturally goes towards the hot-rodded Marshall style tone.

Te clean tone is pretty good but nothing special. It does a basic good job at cleans. The crunch channel gets better and can easily pull off some AC/DC types tones or even some Led Zeppelin sounding tones. The lead is where this thing starts to get great. You get a very fluid lead tone and a nice smooth gain to the overall feeling and voicing of this channel. It gets better though...the ultra lead channel is just glorious. This channel is just splendid in all ways rock n roll. The voicing of this channel is just perfect to my ears. It is deep and throaty that makes you inspired to play and write riffs or songs. I prefer this amp over the Triamp a little more because I feel the throatyness of this amp is better for my style of playing.


At new these amps come in at around $1599. That is a fantastic price for this amp. You get four usable channels and a great lead tones and cleans tones. I would recommend this to anyone who is searching for a great priced versatile British style amp that has four channels. For the money this is a very good buy.
