Vicious Little Lunch Box!
After reading reviews on this hybrid tube/solid state amp, I thought it might be good for practice at home and the occasional gig out there. For home use, I dampen the output by putting the speaker in a suit case. This allows me to get the overdriven tone I want, without blowing the windows out. After tweaking tone controls on my guitars (Les Paul and Strat fitted with Seymour Duncan P-Rails), I am having a riot. This amp kicks out great overdriven tone. I back off the volume with a volume pedal, and she cleans up nicely for playing rhythm guitar. This amp really sings when you jack the volume up, as designed. However, by playing with gain, volume and tone controls on the amp, and by occasionally adding a Joyo Vintage Overdrive, I can get her to sing at relatively low volumes. I am not a heavy metal guy. I am more after the Clapton Bluesbreakers sound, with some violin type sustain. This little terror has enough volume for a small gig. This is a great little amp, for the price, or even disregarding the price.
