Hey everybody. Another pointless thread from me, can anybody tell me anything about these solid state amps from the 80's?

If anybody has owned one. Will it do metal core well?

These are one of the few SS amps that I'd play through (notice I didn't say buy? )
To get metalcore you're going to have to use a good pedal (like a nice pod or something) and get the sound from there. It isn't the worst SS amp distortion by a long shot but is still a bit nasally. But as a base to run pedals though - quite passable.

For £40 I'd grab it, even if it only gets used as the spare amp for jamming.

For that price, provided its working, anyone would buy it

For 40 just buy it and fiddle around with it for a bit, who knows you might like it

People would leave guitars for me in a box on the doorstep with a note "Please look after little Johnie, we just cant cope anymore, all he wants to do is hook up with Marshalls, We thought he would be a fender boy.
