44 Magnum Power Amp

This amp is wonderful. For folks who are tired of transporting heavy equipment around, like I have for decades, this amp is blessing. I purchased this to drive an Avatar G110, housing an Eminence Lil Buddy 10", 50W speaker. The simplicity of this amp is a blessing since it allows me to put together my own sound shaping modules - which gives me flexibility to alter my sound easily and effectively. It is very quiet when the correct input/output cable combinations are used, i.e. instrument in, speaker out in the most simple of cases. I have several pedals that I use as input to this amp and collectively it all works great. I would not purchase any other amp going forward and plan on purchasing another for backup as well as a stereo driven setup for home practice. Thanks again for the great service.


OKAY, so I had a gig at a private party on a Friday night and before I went I checked my mailbox and there was my new Magnum 44 power amp. I had already loaded up my Fender Princeton 1972 model... so anyhow.. when I got to the gig I decided to run the magnum 44 instead of my fender.... OMG!!!!!! THIS LITTLE AMP/PEDAL KICKS SOME SERIOUS BUTT!!!!! I ran it just below the 9 o'clock position and it was stinking load!!!! But yet I felt it had plenty of headroom if I needed more juice... anyhow... if you ever thought of getting one of these, YOU SHOULD..... it can be a great back up amp or your main gig amp... I am going to grab another one so that I can run my rig in stereo....no more lugging my old fender or my other back up amp.... WOW is all I can say..

I've heard this thing in action...

I heard and seen this thing in action by Scott Rolaf (a teacher and session musician check him out on face book) and I was blown away by the simplicity of this pedal!! Powering his rig, he ran it through a Marshall 1960A which was close by (at the store) and WOW it was FREAKIN loud! Sounded like early VH.*** This is not a plug for Scott, but for this pedal. When I can afford to spend the cash (everything in its own time), I will get one!

Who Would Have Known

I tried this pedal out over the 4th Of July weekend and could not believe that a stomp box size power amp could sound this good with just a volume knob and a bright switch, but it does. I ran my pedalboard into it using my Mesa Boogie Toneburst pedal to function as a preamp. I ran 1 JCA12S and 1 JCA12S+ 1x12 speaker cabs on the output side and WOW. It recommends running it into an 8ohm speaker cab and mine are 16ohm each and this thing makes them talk with a strat copy and a Squier Classic Vibe Tele. You can also run an active EQ pedal into it for more tweaking ability. I have also read that other reviewers found this little jewel to work nicely with multieffect pedals. I can't wait to try it out with the new Line 6 Amplifi FX100 Floorboard. Now I just have to try out the Amplifi and make sure I like it as much as the EHX 44 Magnum. Try one. They can bail you out of a pinch if your main amp breaks down on you during a show. All you need is some delay, chorus and a littlle reverb in which the EHX Holy Grail Nano is a nice little addition before going into the 44 Magnum also.

Simply amazing

I'm running an RK5 fly rig into this and into a 1x12 cabinet. This thing is amazing. Nice and clean up to about half way. Pretty loud too. Running it past that then you get break up and natural distortion but not a real increase of volume. Fear not though this is loud enough to gig with in most cases. Everyone should have one of these to use with pedals or multi effects.
