A LOUD 50W
A LIGHT 19 lbs
2 VERY VERSATILE channels
A WHOLE LOAD of pretty friggin AWESOME
Congratulations. I’d really like to hear some sound samples.
Here ya go
I can set up all kinds of great clean tones and driven tones as well on this thing, with ease. The tonal adjustments are very responsive.
I also have the DV Mark FGC121, 120W big brother to this amp. I love that amp as well.
The advantages to that amp are that the Reverb is also footswitchable (it seems to not be on the Guitar Friend), and I give the Drive channel the edge on the FGC121, I get a great driven sound through that.
However, the Cleans- I like BF tones, and the Guitar Friend has those in spades. On the FGC121, I was never happy with the clean unless I was running a 10 band EQ to scoop the mids.
I'm really loving this amp's sounds, and it's only 19 lbs, as opposed to the FGC's 23-24 lbs.
I mean the difference there is negligible, but less weight is always better, everything else being equal
Still patiently waiting for @Jakedog to affirm how cool I am
Haha! You’re the coolest, daddio!
Sweet little amp. Congrats. Is that the original, or the II model?
Thanks! I think it's the original, I believe the second generation has the effects loop. Which I have no real need for, when I play with effects it's always straight into the front of the amp. And yeah I know lots of purists will tell you that I'm doing it wrong
I never use loops either. They never sound as good to me.
Yeah I understand completely that delay/modulation should sound better in a loop, but to me I like how there's just plain more of the effect when you feed it straight in to the amp
An interesting amp in more than one way , but the reverb sounds awful ! And it's an important point for me... Too bad...
But it's me, OK ?
the reverb sounds awesome
