the little thing is amazing. i would swear there were little tubes in there. it has a lot of gain if you crank it but it is not fizzy at all. this is not a sterile rockman or ds-1 sound it is dynamic and responsive.

thank you so much..

The cannibal is a lil diff from the vintage..

It has a level instead of a bias..

My favorite thing about the cannibal is how you can dial it down to whisper volume without loss of dynamics..
Everything STAYS huge.. :dude

Thats the part that creeps me out a bit..

when you crank it it nails the vh tone on women and children first. listen to the song fools and thats the sound of the cannibal. i dont know how you did it but you did. 3 a.m. and i can have this quiet rage going on and the rest of the house sleeps.:AOK

MAGICboy,

This is not a tube pedal/amp, right?

Could you explain to me why it matters it's a half watt? I understand with the subwatt tube amps of course you want to drive the power tubes to a boil, but why would this matter with a transistor amp?

Thank you, Sean. I am confident that I made the right purchase.

I bought one of each model; one for my Nash Esquire and one for my custom Charvel.

My neighbors in Japan will love you. Cheers!

I'll tackle this... Any amp, SS or tube, is going to sound best at the volume it's designed for. It has something to do with electronic components being non-linear. So a 30w, solid state amp, turned down to 1/2w just DOES sound wimpy compared to a 1/2w amp cranked all the way up!

Oh boy I just got my 1/2 watt vintage model. I'll give it a go this weekend. Probably play it through some weber alnico blue dogs and some old eminence alnico 10" speakers. I'll try a bunch of different fuzz/overdrive/boost/delay pedals with it too.

That makes some sense. Guess I'm having trouble wrapping my head around the fact with a tube amp you are inducing clipping in the power stage to get a harmonically rich pallette of tones, I thought power stage distortion is a big no-no with transistor amps? - Beau
