After a few failed delivery attempts, I finally got my Verellen Coop from Mr. Postman. Here's my honeymoon review: I've only gotten a couple hours of play in so far but man does the Coop scream American brute force. This amp is really intended for your classic 6L6 cleans to gritty crunch when pushed hard. The EQ is extremely flexible (i mean it), it's very easy to dial in tones from punchy and flat to sparkly and bright. If I had to compare it to any amp, it would definitely be a tweed twin without the rectifier sag. It's got the rounded mids, unforgivable punch, and lower compression that leaves you somewhat naked. One of the things that I'm most impressed by with this amp is the frequency headroom. Driving a D*A*M Sonic Titan -> Stone Deaf PDF-1 tuned to full boosted low frequencies does not compress and fart out. What does this mean.....this amp is a great pedal platform!!! The reverb on the amp is really my kind of reverb. The decay is very short but it will dwell with your notes as long as they ring out. It can almost get into surf territory but the signal stays much more present than the effect so your guitar doesn't get lost. I've always been more of a drive guy, I don't like the effects to do the playing for me, so I'm really digging it. The only thing I wish this amp was capable of is just a tad more breakup at lower/bedroom volumes. With the preamp dimed on a Strat (57/62 pickups) the signal doesn't begin to clip until around 10:00. With a Les Paul you're looking at 9:00. But since the amp takes pedals so well, I can get away with it at home. Hopefully I'll be at the practice space this weekend and then I can really open up this baby.
