Some weeks ago a big musicstore made a special offer about Budda amps. Until then I had no idea about those amps, and so I made a Google and Youtube search. What I found out and heard let me order one of those amps, and I decided to choose the 18 watt version, beeing the smallest. I didn´t need another amp, but it was so different from my other amps (MESA Express, Lonestar Special) that I couldn´t resist, especially as my bank account gave me an immediate "GO!". I will give you no specs here, you can read them easily on the internet. I think this is a great amp. It´s unbelievable fat sounding. I could quickly dial in a setting that sounded good to me. I like the treble boost even on single coil guitars, I do not like the "modern" switch, which might be related with my musical preferences. I did not use the effect loop. And I did not crank the amp, it would have been far to loud. What I love about that amp aside from the sound is that all the potentiometers fulfill their job without any jumps, they work evenly with musically suitable results. Even the drive channel with a very low gain delivers results that are just beautiful. I recorded a little track as a demo, concentrating on using different guitar and amp settings. The guitar is a 2010 American Standard Tele with Fender Blackguard pickups; the cab I used is a Palmer open back 1x12 with an Eminence Legend 1258, miked with a SM 57 clone nearly centered. No effects added but a little reverb, no eq. You hear the "clean" channel up to 1:20, the the drive channel; at the very end I went to the clean channel again with the bright switch activated. Master is at 08:00, drive at noon, treble at noon, bass and middle at 10 - 11.
