Hey all! It's time for another NAD! I wasn't exactly searching for a new amp, but this baby popped up and I couldn't say no.



Where do I start? This amp is a beast! It looks good and plays even better. The massive low end just puts a smile on my face. There are one or two shortcomings with this amp though. The modern voicing on Channel 2 is just a fizzy, treble-y mess. The Raw setting is nice, and quite classic rock sounding. However, the Vintage setting is what makes this amp for me! With the gain at around 2 o'clock and the mids bumped up it sounds like Thors' thunderous hammer! I love it! It's not the best setting for high gain modern metal or nu-metal. It's somewhere between Adam Jones' (Tool heavy sound and thrash metal. But I'm not after a scooped midz modern metal tone anyway.

Don't think I forgot about Channel 1! The Clean setting on Channel 1 is great but with loads of bass. I have the bass rolled back to 9 o'clock, and it's still a bit much. It has a nice compressed, tight sound. I'm not a huge fan of the Pushed setting, but it does give some decent dirty blues sounds.

Separate reverb controls on both channels is a blessing. The only issue with the reverb is on Channel 2, if the reverb is past 10 o'clock it all turns to a muddy mess. However, I don't use much reverb with dirt so no biggy.

All in all, this is an amazing amp. It sounds just massive. And it's a nice addition to my rig.

A guy in West Auckland was selling it on Trademe, and he threw in the Marshall 1960 Cab for free.
