so, i just bought a Kustom Tube 12. 12 watts, 8 inch Celestion speaker, all tube (i think), and it sounds amazing. of course i am comparing it to my old 15W ss practice amp, but still. very versatile, i can get distortion anywhere from light bluesy stuff to almost enough for metal. about what you would hear in a typical Van Halen song. so it sounds a bit like a 5150/6505 when you crank the distortion. cleans i would say are pretty decent, i haven't tried a single coil through it so all i get is the dark tone of a humbucker. i would put pics up but i don't have a digital camera. i may put up some sound clips later. end of rant.

Its a hybrd amp, so not fully tube
Would be nice to hear clips still though, as these Kustom practice amps come highly regarded

ya, i figured out that it's hybrid. but it sounds so good. as for it being highly regarded i didn't know that i just saw one sitting on the floor at the closest guitar shop, decided i would give it a run seeing as i was looking for a new amp anyway, and fell in love with it. i'm happy with the amp so it's hybrididity isn't a problem.

I really think Kustom are coming back. Their amps seem to be good reviews everytime!

i have one....

total piece of ****.

its status has been lowered to my monitor for recording through my POD, it doesnt leave my room, and never will.

the "distortion" on it is seriously the worst thing ive ever heard in my life. the cleans remind me of an MG from marshall.

I like my Kustom Practice amp. It's the arrow 16r. I got it for $100 and for the price, nothing else I've played has beaten it.

I have a Kustom tube 12a, and I think that its pretty good for the price, though the eq is kind of annoying, the mids are basically on or off...

Oh, and I don't particularly like my strat through it, but I think that is most eq problems.


Edit: oh, and it sounds about a million times better if you run it through a 112 cabinet.

LP: that was the worst/lamest/stupidest attempt at sarcasm that i have ever read. where did you grow up? with a bunch of nuns and a priest who raped you as a child?
oh, and thanks for the advice bandrew.
