Yeah, me too. Straight from the factory.
About 3 months later, it broke and I had to make a warranty claim.
Moral of the story? Hold onto your receipt. You never know with B-52.

Aside from the reliability issues, they are amazing amps. I loved that amp.

Here's mine



A couple of clips in my profile...
http://profile.ultimate-guitar.com/sabbathu/

The two clips with AT100 are the only ones using the B52. All other clips are from a ss yamaha.

I dig my B52. I've gigged with it 3 times since I bought it a month ago. I swear if it ever breaks I'll report it here, but for now, its all good.

I bought mine AT112 in June...Its now a 70lb brick in my garage! I'll ship it to the tech once I have money for shipping. I loved it when it worked. This thread is starting to look like a B-52 Real Stories show or something.

Indeed they do. I've been considering B-52 once I get a job for a while but all the ones at my local GC have microphonic tubes from here til next Tuesday so I can't try them out. How would they do for a metalcore/hardcore mix say a cross between The Devil Wears Prada/As I Lay Dying?

To get my ideal tone for thick sludgy, yet articulate sounding rythym I set Gain 1 as follows....

Gain 10 (some of you might think it kills the tone but as long as you have Volume 1 below 6, its all good - more on that later).

Bass 6

Middle 8 (this is key)

Trebble 5 1/2

NO CONTOUR! OFF!!!

Volume 5 (I used to crank this knob and keep the Master low, and it sounded good for bedroom but too mushy live with a full drum kit. Keep it at 5 and you will be able to crank those master tubes higher)

Master 5-6 (LIVE)
Master 2 (Bedroom)

I use Gain 2 as a lead boost, basically by setting Gain 2 Volume at 6 and stomping on the footswitch when I need it.
The other guitarist in my band has a Dimebag Krankenstein and he refuses to put his mids above 2. He scoops the hell out of his tone and it sounds great, but the minute we start rocking he gets lost in the mix and my amp shines. Basically its settings. His amp may be twice as expensive but mine sounds better.
