Probably the head. I'd like to run it with 2 2x12's.
Got mine yesterday, returned it today. Everything sounded good, but the reverb. The tail was just too noticeable where I felt it got in the way of the playing.... then today, the reverb stopped working altogether. So, I’m not sure if I just don’t like the reverb or maybe I just got a bum one. I wouldn’t mind taking a chance on another one, but I have my eyes on some other gear so I’ll just get a refund for now.
I think the speaker is the secret sauce. Selling my NMV version to fund the new version of the combo
Played mine through my Weber attenuator last night and what tone
They are sweet. That's for sure.
I bought a BM Reverb combo. Gave it a shot for just under 30-days and returned it today within the return window.
I really wanted to like it but I just couldn't dial in a tone that I enjoyed hearing. To me it sounded very brittle/unpleasant/harsh on the high end and actually fatigued my ears quickly. Dialing that out made it sound lifeless. Bought it because I watched many many YT demos and really loved what I heard. I just couldn't get those same sweet crunchy/chewy tones. Even matching up the knobs to the videos it wasn't even close. Tried other speaker cabs with it too, it helped but still not a winner for me.
I very much disliked the reverb. The trail is not adjustable, only the amount of reverb you can hear. Big design miss there.
What I did like was the cleanish to just beyond edge of breakup sounds but I wanted those great crunch tones I expected.
I know plenty of folks love 'em and make them sound great, I'm not one of those apparently.
Glad to know I wasn't the only one crazy about the reverb.
If you don't like the built-in reverb, just don't use it and run a separate reverb unit or pedal. That is, if you are satisfied with the amp other than that one feature.
