I opened up the front door today and found something sitting in my living room...

It's got a card on it, what does it say?



Aww it's from my wife, a happy birthday card. Apparently it's also from the dog. See, bacon always works.

Well isn't that a handsome devil...



Not a bad birthday after all...

*edit*
Here's the lowdown on size, if anyone is interested.
On the left is a Fender Rumble15 bass practice amp.
Center is the Handsome Devil (drool).
Right is an MG15CDR, collecting dust.

You'll find whisky very different, but try it and you'll grow into it, soon you and whisky are one, but still two, lovers dancing across a frozen lake under moonlight, wrapped in honey and warmth.


Sums up whisky perfectly

I have no good recording ability, and this is my first tube amp, so take all this with a grain of salt.

This is the sexiest thing I've ever played through ever hands down.

It so far outstrips my capabilities as a guitarist that I'm actually jealous of my own equipment.
In 7 watt mode, with the master set to 12 o'clock it moves enough air to be nice and loud. I believe it would be able to be heard in a practice space with no problems whatsoever. If you're gigging in a small club it may have to be turned up a bit louder but probably not mic'd. 7 watts almost sounds compressed but is perfect for smaller rooms, garages, basements, similar.
At 15 watts volume is not a problem whatsoever. The with the drive around 9:00 the cleans are sparkly and very clear. At 12:00 you begin to get the slightly clean/slightly overdriven sounds reminiscent of the Counting Crows - Recovering the Satellites album. With the drive cranked all the way up its similar to AC/DC or 90's pop rock like Third Eye Blind. For a moment it even sounded a little like the overdrive from Tool's Sober.
I haven't yet tried any pedals with it. Since I only have a Korg AX3000G multi-effects pedal, I can't give any real information on how particular pedals sound. I can pretty much guarantee that it's only going to get used for modulation and tuning at this point. The combo just sounds too bloody good on it's own.

*edit* after playing through my Korg pedal, it still sounds freakishly good. Some of the amp/cab models on the board don't do well, and the pedal itself sucks out a lot of volume, but the combo compensates extremely well. I stick with my previous statement about the modulation effects though. The amp is too good and unless I needed a more metal sound I would not bother with the onboard amp models.


This was a used unit, bought from a local GC for about $250.

Hey, it's my favourite low-watter!

HNAD, man. Those things are sweet!
Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.

Happy Birthday! Lucky man. Your wife loves you, and you have a new amp!

Took me a few minutes, but I finally figured out what HNAD means!

Happy NAD!!! I have a Handsome Devil head and I agree that it moves more than enough air to keep up with a drummer, bass player, and lead guitar player during rehearsal. Mic it up and you have a Hell of a great sound.

You will find it takes very well to pedals also. One of my best purchases.

Nice! Congrats!

But she still makes you keep it in the basement, right?

I love my 'Devil man. I'm sure you will love yours too. Sounds like you got a good deal: a wife who knows good gear and who's willing to part with som cash for your enjoyment. Count your blessings, mate. My girlfriend wouldn't buy me gear for christmas because she said it confuses her...

I reckon it's because I'd spent more time in the rehearsal place and less time with her.
Gear:

Is what some junkies refer to heroin as. For me it's just loads of wires and good sturdy housing, but just as addictive.
