    Anybody own or tried that model ? Reviews are good and I don't need another amp. But I'm getting one for 150 Canadian pesos.

    Haven't played one but I've heard good things. The guys at my local shop were impressed by the first few models that came out(AC30, etc.).

    What I couldn't believe the first time I saw one for real was the size. They're like the size of an effects pedal, which doesn't come across in photos of just the amp itself.

    So for an amp that sits in the palm of your hand, and for cheap, as long as it sounds halfway decent I reckon you're on to a winner.

    All I know is that its supposed to sound like a Dumble.

    That's kindof impossible to verify... :rofl:

    That said, if it sounds like Vox's Dumble sounds on the Valvetronix series, it will probably sound pretty good.

    Yikes ! That tiny thing is a monster and loud, real loud. I don't mean loud for a small amp, I mean LOUD ! Maybe as loud as my AD60VT !

    There is a real wide tonal range with the single knob and gain goes from squeaky cleans to fat roaring OD in a non linear fashion. From none to 2/3rd of the way it is nicely progressive, then the last 1/3rd just blows you away.

    I think I'll have some fun with this ant amp. I only played it throught the 2X12 for now. I'll try the 2X10 later and then a 1X12.

    2 weeks later, still a blast now with a 12". Oh yeah, and it takes pedals real well. I give it a milligram of chorus and it sing to the angels. The dark ones that is ...

    Col Mustard take note, it's way more fun and versatile than a Micro Terror.

    Hi Doc! Happy amp deal :cheers:

    You ever tried to boost the amp by od or clean boost pedals? If you did, how the amp responded?

    Thanks.

    Yeah, respond like a tube amp ... which it is actually, just a different tube technology. My Joyo Sweet Baby is great with it, so is my vintage Ibanez CFS Chorus.

    A little taste of gain maxed on the VX50 Boutique, with the new old Epi SG400 Vintage.
