Night Train, small sound
This amp sounds pretty decent with the controls set "just right", but not with any changes.
In the "fat" mode (switch) it is nasty overdrive... lacking much bottom end. I could find no useable adjustments in that mode.
In the bright mode, with the Treble turned full off, mids at 12 oclock and bass cranked, the amp sounds pretty good (Pentode mode) It would be a great recording amp with this setup, but dont expect it to be as loud as a Princeton Rev. or 5E3. Unlike a Fender mid control, this mid control seems to effect the upper mids rather than the lower punchy mids.
The transformers are large, but this thing isnt near as full or loud as my 2 x EL84 Ghia. I play some pretty low volume gigs, but this amp is not gig capable. No robust tone at all.
