Pure 64 Meanstreet Classic 6V6 w 1x12 speaker cab loaded with Austone speaker Ive had this amp for about 3 months now and wanted to get passed the honeymoon phase before giving my thoughts on the amp. In my search for an amp I had a lot of considerations, obviously tone was on top of the list but things like weight and size i.e. portability were also factors. Ive gotten tired of hauling heavy gear to and from rehearsal/gigs. I have contacted several great builders who frequent TGP and have been impressed with all of them. A lot of really talented people here. When I spoke to Mark (Pure 64 builder) there was a passion that really caught my attention. This man is so passionate about his product and after a couple conversations, I knew I found my builder. Like many of my fellow musicians, Ive been through a stupid amount of gear and in amps, Ive owned or tried many of the top names in builders we frequently discuss here. Some suited my needs better than others. Most are just great amps. I got my Pure 64 Meanstreet classic and spent a couple days with it. To be honest, it didnt sound right, while there was still a great depth to the amp, it did not bowl me over. I spoke to Mark about it, he immediately knew something was wrong with the amp and made it his priority to get my amp sounding the way it was supposed to sound and assured me he would not rest until I was happy with the amp. Long story short, it was a tube problem and once we got that settled the amp sounded as it should. Which is really quite excellent. A very simple format non-master volume with a curve switch, treble, mid, bass and reverb. One of the first things I noticed when I turned the amp on is the depth and ample low end it has. So much so, you have to look twice at the cabinet because youve never heard anything like this from a 1x12 cab. Very easy to dial in the right amount of bass with the simple layout of the amp. Adjusting the mid allows me to find the sweet spot within what Id have to describe as nearly all sweet spot as the amp really sounds great in pretty much any setting Ive tried. The highs remain clear and smooth and the overall sound has a great separation of lows, mids and highs that really blend to create a very pleasing to the ear sound. The adjustments are subtle yet really provide a good sweep when working with different guitars. Bright switch adds extra chime and sparkle. Another thing I noticed is how clean this amp is. How a 20 watt amp can have this much clean headroom is astounding. The amp remains very clear and clean up to about 12:00 on the volume, starts a warm smooth breakup beyond that but retains that clear character even when cranked. Notes are articulate and warm and cut through the mix very well when playing in a band situation. The amp really reacts to your playing and captures all those little nuances that have been washed over in my other previous amps. The curve switch is a great tone tool and really gets you from Fender territory to Marshall territory (only vastly improved). Ive found my spot in the 2nd and 3rd clicks but depending on my musical situation, I feel I can cover most sonic territory that I need with this simple dial. I am using several different pedals with the amp, it takes pedals very well but the irony is that some of my old standby pedals were moved off my board with this amp. I used to run a BJF comp but find it is not necessary anymore, same with my EQ/buffer pedal. Im using a few drive pedals for options at lower volumes but when I get the amp cranked, they are no longer necessary. This amp is LOUD and will handle most any stage situation. Ive played several outdoor gigs already and have been plenty loud with the volume around 10:00 - 11:00. Ive heard the term 3-D sound before and never really understood what anybody meant by it. Now I do. Basically the amp fills the room with so much sound it can be difficult to pinpoint where the sound is coming from. This amp really does that. The 1 x12 cab is simply brilliant. Its voiced specifically for the Meanstreet head. No more searching for that perfect amp/speaker combo. Overall Id give this amp a 10 out of 10 for tone and quality and Id give Mark a 10 in customer service as well. Id put it up against amps costing twice as much. Worth every penny and then many more. Thanks Mark for a phenomenal sounding amp.
