Had some gift cash, and found this used locally. Ended up snagging it for $100. » 5W Single-Ended, Class A » 4, 8 and 16 ohm Speaker Outs » Preamp Tubes: 1 x 12AX7 » Power Tubes: 1 x EL84 » Solid State Rectifier » Volume with 3 Band EQ » Pentode (5W)/Triode (3W) Switch » DC Power to filaments for super quiet operation » 15 ply (18mm) thick-void free Plywood Construction » 16 gauge steel chassis Absolutely no need for this. But, I have always had my eye out for a good deal on one. I had read how these were always built with above their price range quality, particularly the PCB board, and are extremely mod friendly. Though used, it is in immaculate, looks like it is brand new shape. And, I got it for a NICE price. It's a fun little amp. Has a bit of a JTM45/Plexi thing going. NOT a lot of gain at full volume. Vintage crunch is the best it can manage. If you want apartment/bedroom volumes and dirt, your using pedals. Good thing the amp really likes them. My Mad Professor Sweet Honey overdrive and this are a fantastic match. By itself you have to crank that volume up to start getting the EL84 saturated and distorting. No preamp distortion, it's all output tube. REALLY reacts to different tube brands. I ended up with a JJ 12AX7, because of it's higher gain. With lower gain 12AX7's you can get it to that just breaking up Blues thing at full tilt. Since the distortion is all output tube, different EL84s make a difference. I ended up with a GE Pulled Old Stock over a JJ (2nd place). The GE was a little smoother on breakup, though with a little less distortion than the JJ. They both beat out the Sovtek, Svetlana, Amperex made Hammond pulls, and EH. Could hear a difference with each and everyone though. Some almost sounded 6V6ish in this amp Pentode/triode also give a slightly different voicing. Already planning out some mods. I got it with that in mind, as I enjoy it. Looking to increase the gain a little, and adjust the tone stack a little bit. Might also add a MV or power scaling as well, moving the Pentode/Triode to the back. But then, was running it through my Unleash, so the MV may be unnecessary. Had to use the unleash, because it is LOUD when cranked.
