gave a guy a death metal pedal for this bad boy haha



Sounds boring by itself but with the M13 and my other pedals (eq, fuzz) it really sounds great!

Thats solid state right?

It is a solid state amp, albeit a good one.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Wow, looking up YT demos of this thing, it sounds sweet.

And for a shit pedal? Awesome deal dude. HNAD.

Might wanna post a review so it doesn't get closed.

Was that guy on something? A pedal for an amp head? Really?

That's practically a con, the TS managed to get something for almost nothing. Other than the Boss HM2... I can't figure out another "death metal" pedal that'd be worth a whole amp head.

Ah, an amp from the days when MOSFET was still the new thing and touted as being "as good as tubes" - before everybody discovered that, "hmmm, maybe in a hifi, but keep them away from my guitar amp" That's why it has MOSFET written in big letters on the front.
Ah, nostalgia.

For a SS amp they aint that bad really.

If only new Marshalls sounded like the old ones.. I've not heard one of those myself, but I've never heard a pre-90s Marshall sound bad.

Yeah, they gave us a bit of a taste of the horror that was to come when they brought out the 2205 in the eighties. For the first time a new valve marshall wasn't as good as the one before it. Up until then each new Marshall was just a beefier more grunty progression from the one before it. The 2205 wasn't actually bad but the one from a year earlier certainly sounded better. The fact that it had a switchable channel sold it but it was certainly a step backwards in tone.
But of course that was as nothing compared to the JCM900. I remember when they first came out most guys (including myself) thought is this POS? And when we pulled it apart it was obvious why. Mass production, PCB's covered in op-amps. The SL/X was a half assed attempt at rectifying the problem but it wasn't until the DSL that they really got somewhere on track again.
I haven't had a JVM apart yet. I bet it's a nightmare with all the MIDI stuff and all. But it's clear what direction they have been aiming.
I think it's important that the JCM800 marked the end of the Rose Morris contract. I think it's clear what Jim intended. "We're free, time to get big!"
It would have been a godsend if MOSFET's had have been as good as was hoped. Certainly would have made going into serious mass production easier. So really, the 3210 MOSFET would have had bucketloads of resources thrown at it. Unfortunately MOSFET's weren't as good for guitar as tubes so that was as far as they went with serious SS research. That is born out by what we see them producing. I mean really. Those MG's are an insult to the consumer.
Anyway that's my take on it. For what that's worth; half a cup of yak fat maybe?

Yeah I didn't question what the trader was thinking I simply I accepted the offer. I also own a HM-2 by Boss and that pedal is definitely a gem. I think the amp sounds great for a SS. It doesn't top my Deville but its easier to carry and with the M13 sounds great! The thing has a good selection of output selections to either a 4 ohm or 16ohm and even a direct output jack with a line level knob. It's pretty nice amp. I'll probably make a youtube demo of the sounds I get with it : )

i like the idea of this amp.

yo mosfets are awesome...let's build a mosfet amp and see how it does.

cool.

then it was like yo tubes are expensive let's use diodes and jfets to try to emulate the sound of tubes.

not cool.

then its was like hey let's fire those ****ers.

cool.

then it's like those ****ers that designed all that terrible shit started a new company called blackstar selling the same shit.

not cool.

The only problem I really have with the amp is the reverb is somewhat subpar but after more and more time with it, I find it truly is the best solid state I've ever owned. I think it sounds better than my old Hybrid head as well! My Omega Deville is still number one, but this thing was a great find! Changed my perspective on solid states for the most part.
