B-212 Review

manufacturer: Yamaha date: 06/19/2006 category: Guitar Amplifiers
It's 100w and it's really really loud, and really heavy but it has wheels on it so it's no problem except stairs. The only problem is it doesn't have a headphone jack so it's loud all the time.

Features: I think the amp was made some time in the '70s. It has a distortion knob on it and it bites. It's possiably has the worst distortion ever. But get a good distortion pedal and its great. The clean channel is a dream. It's 100w and it's really really loud, and really heavy but it has wheels on it so it's no problem except stairs. The only problem is it doesn't have a headphone jack so it's loud all the time. // 6

Sound: Like I said before the distortion sucks but the clean is wicked. I curenly have a Squier Strat with a digitech death meatal pedal. The amp isn't noisy just my guitar is f--ed. For the clean sound I give it a 9. // 9

Reliability & Durability: I would use this amp at a gig without back up, I never have to worry about blowing a speaker because it can kill my cymbal happy drummer at 5. I don't think this amp will break unless I drop it down some stairs. // 10

Overall Impression: I play a lot of metal (Pantera, Metallica) and I have my Death Metal pedal and it's wicked. I'v been playing for a year and a half and know one belives me. If it got stole I would go find another one since there so friggin cheap (used). I just wish the distortion knod did something more then creat feedback. // 8

Price paid: $ 200

Purchased from: Guitar Center

Features: I think this amp was made in the 1970's which means its dirt for that style of music. The distortion channel sucks but I think that the reverb and bright give the Fender super reverbs a good run for thier money. Also the clean channel is amazing, no feedback from my sg what so ever. It really needs a headphone jack because it's hella loud. I can use it for gigs with out back ups. It's louder than my friend's Marshall half stack. Great all tube state amp. // 8

Sound: I am using a Gibosn SG Standard with this and since my bridge pickup is quiet, I use my neck pickup 99% of the time. It has very nice tone, clean sound, and I get 0 feedback. If you go on the clean channel and use a Boss DS-1 stomp box the sound will be louder than anything you have ever heard. Throw it up to ten and you will be amazed. // 10

Reliability & Durability: I have had no problems yet with the amp. It is great! I would definitley use this for a gig without a backup. // 9

Overall Impression: It fits my style (Led Zepplin, Pink Floyd, Steppenwolf, and some new stuff). I have been playing for quite sometime now and if this amp was stolen from me I would look everywhere for another one. I love the clean channel, hate the distortion, and I love how loud it is. It comes pretty close to the Fender black twins but not all the way up with them. I chose to buy this amp because it was pretty cheap, it was all tube, and it was loud. If you find one of these amp I highly recommend that you purchase it. // 10
