I recently bought an 18 Watt Lite II (Silvatone layout). The way I understood it, was that this was just like an 18 Watt but with only one channel. (I admit that I've never heard an 18 watt Marshall.) This thing sounds really anemic through several different speakers**. I had the correct impedance set. Compared to a Princeton Reverb, a Vox AC15, or an Orange AD 15 this thing sounds like a 5 watt practice amp. It's not even in the same universe as a Dr. Z Maz 18. Dimed with a Les Paul it does sound like a Marshall ('70's R&R crunch) but just not much of it. Does this sound right? I'd appreciate advice or opinions. Thanks. ** Closed back 8 ohm 15" Showman cab, open back 2X12 4 ohm Pro Reverb cab, 8 ohm open back 1 X 12 Red, White & Blue.
