i got this head a little while ago after i tried my friends out and i am amazed. i was with everyone else when they said tube was the way to go, i have had problems with my line6 being solid-state they just dont sound goo kranked but then i played this head and its not your typical solid-state it has warm clear tones like the top of the line tube amps and a distortion that you can literally feel. hooked up to one cab at not even half volune it was pushing on my chest from 20 feet away. i want those guys that said it sounded like crap to find me a better head cause ive searched for about a year now for that perfect head and this head is what i came out with. I would match it up with the crate blue-voodoo as far as sound quality goes. so if you are looking for that warm and smooth sound and crisp deep distortion this is the head for you. get it at zzounds.com $250
Upgraded from a GT1200H: All I got was more "Loudness." Where's the tonal quality? The local dealer advised me not to buy it. I should have listened. If you're in your beginning stages of metal-head mania and you want loud then buy it. However, if you want absolute perfection out of your recordings, save your hard earned dollars for a tube. I spent a month comparing amps and thought I had sort them out well. Looks like I will be laying down the pesos for better quality, not quantity. On the tech side: To get the full effect (350wrms) you must run this head in a full stack configuration, piggy-backed at 4ohms (verified by CRATE). A half-stack is limited to 220wrms only (unless you can find a single 2ohm cab). Also; the build quality of this amp reflects its price tag. What looks like a piece of stamped metal behind the front grill is actually a piece of thin fiberboard with a sticker on it made to look like metal (pissed me off when I inspected it). The grill is not attached at center bottom either (handle with care). The screw heads are visible under the tolex covering and the bottom board is bowed downward. The full size is nothing but a gimmick also, alot of wasted design space. Can you say, "Made in China?" But don't be alarmed, it's tested in AMERICA for QA! The bottom line: Most BANG-FOR-YOUR-BUCK ! Lacks quality that I've grown to respect at this point in time. I'm trading-up for a tube amp, and so should you.
I've had this head for a few months now combined with 2 GT412 cabs. I must say I love this amp. Clean channel is warm & clear, Rhythm channel is perfect for that crunch sound & the Solo channel can easily cut through the mix. With 350 watts at 2 Ohms this thing gets loud. The drummer I usually play with plays really loud & I can easily drown him out with the volume barely half way up. Played at low volumes or fully cranked the sound and tone is beautiful. I'd be happy playing on this setup for the rest of my life.
This amp is great for the price and the amount of watts it puts out. It's also very loud. However, it is a solid state and while others may say it has better tone and sound, (it does have very nice tone), it's still not a tube amp and cannot get that clear distortion or clean as a tube amp might have. But considering the price and the sound and volume, its a great head, but before you buy this amp, try some tube amp heads and U may be able to hear the difference.
I was always skeptical of this amp because it's solid state, but I finally tried this beast and boy am i glad i did! On the first channel, you can get some of the most crystalline clean tones around. Channel two is mainly a rhythm channel, or a nice sounding tube type warm distortion for some more classic style rock. Channel 3 is the best!! It uses the EQ from channel two, but channel 3 gets heavier, more saturated distortion. The shape of the distortion on channel 3 is like most crate amps, in that it has a gain control and a shape knob, to go from a bassy, saturated, nu metal sound to a scratchy Children of Bodom sound to a more classic rock grind. My particular unit has an issue with the reverb so i can't review that part, mine just sits there and hums till it overpowers the guitar with only hum, but thats just my unit. Overall, this is the perfect amp and i dont see a change to ever be likely!
This thing gets LOUD! When I first plugged it in, I had it low and it has GREAT tone. But when it cranks....It cranks. I honestly would not mind playing this amp for the rest of my life. Practice, Shows, or even just sitting down jamming. This amp is great. And for the money, you can't beat the wattage.
Why spend thousands on a head from Marshall, when you get the same, wait, BETTER tone with this head? This head has it all, power, and tone, it's what everyone would need in a venue.
