After looking and playing through all kinds of effects and pedals I bought this amp after hearing the rotary Effect. Not a perfect Leslie sound but close. I've actually programed the settings for our set list into this amp and can call up the exact settings with a push of the foot switch. Kinda makes my pedal board useless.
I bought this one with the V-amp 2 (blue) preamp also. They both play great! I use the 1200 with a Peavey XXL 412 speaker, it sounds great! Most of the sounds are very good, the noise gate works well and, mostly of all, the unit gives you a signal to send it to the main console, no mics or DI's etc. I used it in live performances, it sounds awesome! The price is unbeatable of course, you can just buy a decent stompbox, or two at the same price. The ease of use is unbelievable and I like the knobs (instead of pressing buttons). Also the display of the settings is very convenient, using the red leds. If you want to avoid gaps between changing patches, please use THE SAME CABINET TYPE. Both the LX1200H and V-AMP 2 are very good in studio, in live, both for the hobbyist and the working pro who needs something with good sound, ease of use and portability, at an outrageous price!!! And finally, the ultimate test, put it through a large PA (the sound is very good!), play with it in a 2-hour live, and record it in CD directly from the console. You will be impressed. If not, maybe you are the type who likes his amp just because he paid a lot for it, loves the name on it (... put a well known name here, anyone will do...) and doesn't care if it's noisy, only has 2-3 sounds and it's heavy as hell... Give it a try, learn to play with it, I'm sure you will change your mind about digital modelling... I surely did.
Played on this head with a corresponding cab at the local music store today. This thing is ridiculously cool. Now don't expect to hear a triple rec coming out of this thing, the modeling is very good for the price, but it's not gonna get u the lifelike warmth and clarity of overdrive that tubes will, but it's pretty close. I own a Line6 modeling head, which was a decent bit more expensive than this, this one is right about on par with the spider2 head, but to me the line6 models sound a little cleaner, but you get more models with this. I'd try them both, but this thing is really nice for the price, hard to believe actually.
Ok, I don't write a lot of reviews, but this one has to be told. I kid you not, this amp is good. I'm using a Mesa rectifier cab and it sounds good. I received a fun gift to "play" with for Xmas; my wife knows my taste in equipment so this was a cheap toy. Digital tech is so close now I've basically have converted. This doesn't mean I'm getting rid of my existing gear but will not be so inclined rule out cheap technology. Please accept this review as objective.
I bought this amp like a week ago and I LOVE it!!!! The Presets are great, It comes with a foot controller....and the distortion is crazy!!!I play power metal and this thing SCREAMS!!!! The auto-wah is INSANE!!!! I play power metal and this thing is AWESOME....I will definitely use this for the rest of my career!!Also.....to those who say its not loud enough....your more than likely running it through a 16 ohm cabinet...I suggest getting a 4 ohm (mono)/8 ohm stereo cabinet......this thing is loud, it screams, and it is CHEAP!!!I have played Marshalls, Mesa's...and they are awesome...but this dishes out the same (IF NOT MORE) quality!!!......I also suggest using EMG pickups!
This amp is good for the price, but the sound quality is not great. I can often get a reasonable sound from it, but at times my distortion just sounds like grumbling. The clean is pretty crisp if you screw around with it enough, and the effects are pretty solid. Overall, it isn't the worst amp I've ever used, but I would recommend saving up a bit more and buying a much better sounding head.
When I fist received this amp in April 05 from Music 123, I thought about sending it back. But, when I started to mess around tweaking the sound to my liking, I found this unit to be an extremely versatile piece of equipment and that's what I was looking for, versatility. You can get just about any tone you want from clean to extreme distortion and everything in between. I'm still experimenting with, and probably will be for a while, all the different tone combinations available with this unit. You can mix different amp models with cabinet simulations, mix in decent effects, and you have 9 different reverbs to choose from. The noise gate also works pretty darn good. I run this through the Behringer BG412V cabinet and it sounds great. I would like to see a 2nd set of up and down pedals on the heads' included footswitch in order to switch between the25 different banks. The included footswitch only allows for switching between the 5 selections. You need to use the arrow buttons on the head to change banks. But, for the price, you'll have a hard time finding a better value or a better sounding rig.
I bought this amp without playing it.... I'm glad i through caution to the wind this amp is totaly worth it it has everything you need... i'd suggest getting the FCB1010 Midi foot controller though!I got that and now i'm happy!
