Look at that beautiful amp.

I put an ad on Craigslist that read something to the effect of: "Wanted - your cheap amp. Willing to pay 10$." and I was expecting somebody to have a Squier SP 10 or similar, but this fella emailed me about this Kustom. I agreed to spend 20$.

I don't have much basis for comparison so you can take the following review with a heavy dose of salt.
Short version: I think I got a halfway decent amp for the price. Would I pay full price in the store? Nah. But for 20 bucks?
1. Spring reverb.
2. Two channels
3. 8" Celestion Speaker
4. Relatively cool-sounding solid state distortion

It looks like hell but that's alright. It's more fun to use than the Orange Crush Pix that I've been borrowing.

I think your cat is excited to have a new litterbox. Happy (you need a) New Amp Day!

My first amp probably sucked more than that, and I wish I only paid it $20...

Happy NAD, have fun!

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

I've got 4 sounds.

1. Rhythm channel clean sounds alright. Nothing to brag about but it's clear enough and not too hissy for practice.
2. Using my ac30 amplug for a pass-through into the rhythm channel. It's modelling but as far as models go I think vox models the ac30 as well as anyone.
3. Then of course Kustom's high-gain sound
4. If you dial it in juuuuust right you can kinda get a bluesy crunch.

It's more useful than i expected. I expected basically no usefulness at all. Tbh i was planning to strip it for parts and contribute toward the tube amp i was building but now i kinda want to transplant the brains of it into my new head and make it channel 3

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

The AC30 Amplug is a decent model of an AC30? Yours must be different to mine.
They're a useable toy but you'd have to have a hell of a good imagination to think it sounded like an AC30.

Well I didn't exactly say that an amplug sounds like an ac30. Lets's not get all crazy up in here.



I know... splitting hairs...
