I've been using this amp for awhile now, It's my drummer's brother's amp, nobody knows what it is except that it's an 100 watt SS kustom, but it breaks up like a valve, because it's weird. its 212 i believe

and it's padded like a 1960's kustom in black, I don't have any clear pictures of it. and I looked on google for it and found nothing.

It's a kustom, I wanna know the model. No tubes, it's SS, I said that. It's LIKE a tube though because it breaksup, I'll try and find the best pic of it.



that's the best I can find of it, all it says is kuston 100 on it. It's got tuck and roll padding on the sides.

You can't say its like a tube amp because it breaks up, any amp will break up, whether solid state or tube.

But, I've NEVER heard a solid state amp that can break up like a tube amp. I've heard SS that can get convincing tube-like distorted tone, but will not break up into the harmonically rich and complex overdrive of a good tube amp.

Alexander Dumble said it best "the fragile harmonics that can exist in a vacuum are eliminated and squashed in a solid state crystal lattice."

by breaking up I mean it sounds good when it does break up, not muddy distortion. But you can tell it's not tube because it's lacking that warmth in the bottom end.

I'm not sure what it is, but if it's worth anything, you guys should sell it and buy your bass player some shoes. O_o

I think you mean the preamp distortion sounds good rather than power amp break up. Cranking a solid state amp's volume will always result in ugly harmonic content and a sound that will fart out. Even if its not muddy, it will not sound pleasing by any stretch.

Sorry for being nitpicky.

nono, there's no button for distortion, that's why I really wanna know more about it, it really overdrives like a tube it's really weird.


And yeah, our bassist doesn't ever wear shoes...even at school, he's a surfer. He like doesn't believe in shoes.
