This is a belated NAMM report of the new V-Stack amp by First Act. As some of you may know, Steve Webster sold his company, V-Stack, to First Act in Boston, who makes guitars, amps, and other instruments. Steve worked with another TGP member, Lance Keltner, aka, Witchita, to design an amp based on Steve's amazing V-Stack chip technology. For some reason, the amps are not on their website, but they had them all over their NAMM space, including a room to demo them. I've still got my V-Stack Classic and Tweedy, as well as a one off pedal that hasn't been available to the public. I still love them, and the Tweedy has held its own on my board with such venerable pedals as the CJOD (which I still have), the ProAnalog Dual Drive, Zendrive, etc. They have a few models, which are basically the same technology in various power, speaker and feature configurations. This report is about the 75W 1-12 combo Deluxe Amp, which has the full feature set. There are 4 channels, each of which is modeled after classic amps, namely - BF clean, Vox AC30, Marshall, and Trainwreck. That's not what they're named, but that's what the models are, IIRC. There are separate Level controls for each channel, and they are all available via a custom footswitch. There is only one master EQ section for all models, with a master Level control. It's all solid state (75W), but the analog V-Stack chip mojo takes it beyond that, just like the pedals. There are 3 built in effects - Reverb, Echo & Tremolo - all accessible from the footswitch. You can program different fx settings for each of the 4 channels and they are stored for instant recall when you change channels. And you can turn each effect on/off via the footswitch, as well as a global fx Mute, and that is saved when you change channels. There's also an fx Loop, XLR Balanced line out and 1/4" line out. There's also a 10db boost switch which can be engaged on all 4 channels. You can also pull the entire amp chassis out of the combo box and rack mount it for studio use, since it can be used directly for recording. Very cool. I didn't test it exhaustively, but what I heard was impressive and very well thought out by Steve and Lance. I'm not sure of the exact prices, but they're not too costly. They are a unique take on the modeling scene and certainly as good as any other modeling amp available now. Steve told me that at the previous nite's NAMM jam, many people were impressed and surprised when they heard the amp among the many standard amps on stage - it held its own quite well - and more. I guess you can eMail First Act for more info re availability, cost, etc.
