Well - it finally arrived this morning after 3 (painful )months of waiting. Where do I start - From the moment I opened the box and laid eyes on this amp I fell in Love. The English head is a lot smaller that I imagined - it's perfect for gigging and the weight is reasonable. I use a 2000 Santana 2. I own many amps - Marshall Slash Signature 2555 , a Dual recto, and I also have quite a few fender amps which belong to my brother etc..... plus a Gibson GA15 RV it's difficult to be objective about an amp after only a few hours of playing but I can safely say that after working in a recording studio as a professional producer and with at least 100 + Albums under my name ( produced for various artists ) that I can make a few Valid statements about this amp. Firstly - I've read quite a few remarks stating that this amp is a bit bright and harsh - Totally not true - This amp sings with no harshness whatsoever. There was a strange high harmonic following some notes on my bass strings which I couldnt quiet identify initially but this just adds to the intruige of this amp. what I later discovered is that this is actually all the extra harmonic complexity that this amp produces which was an alien sound to my ears I've never heard so many complex harmonic overtones from a power section before - most of the amps I've played in the past are so loud that all I've ever heard is pre amp tube distortion . the English is totally unique sounding - The Overdrive tone of this amp sounds quite woody at times and the amp squishes just enough to feel really good when it's pushed hard. The lead sound when the volume knob is turned up to around 3 o'clock really sings and is very touch sensitive - at any time a clean sound can be achieved just by picking gently - This is totally new to me from any of my previous amp experiences. The overdrive tone is not smooth in a similar way to what a dual recto puts out but feels totally expressive. to my ears this amp thrives on Soulful meaningful melodic lines that are played with conviction. I wouldnt recommend this to any rock or metal player although I'm sure it could accommodate almost anyone! I'm planning on recording a few tracks in the next few days at my studio and then I'll be able to expand on this review.
