This review is more of a comparison between the 20 and the 40 than a review of how the Champions sound. They both sound great.I bought the Champion 20 at first, which is a great sounding amp that also looks cute. It also has all the sounds I wanted and it can play amazingly loud even though it is small.Then I realized that it does not

I ordered the Fender Champion 20. Being a beginner, I wasn't ready to splurge on a $600 combo tube amp, so I was looking for something simple to amplify my new Epiphone SG. In its price range, the Fender Champion 20 was one of the highest recommended products on Amazon, so I figured I'd give it a shot. Originally, I was deciding between

sad, I got to play this amp 1 time before a whitish/blue flash came out the back while turning it on and then the red led's on the front panel went out and that was it ,you could not turn it on or anything.just dead.

As a bit of a background about myself, I have been playing guitar for more than twenty years and have had a chance to try out a great number of solid state, hybrid and tube amps. This unit is the queen of versatility and portability! I enjoy the extremely wide range of options. It doesn't replace the need to buy separate pedals but it

I just purchased this amp a few days ago and it is excellent! It has 30 different presets( +20 more that you can use as replacements) that work for any genre of music. All of the presets can be adjusted manually to your liking and saved. I am a beginner and still learning, but this amp is perfect for this purpose and I highly recommend

The Mustang LT25 is an excellent little amp. It's a modeling amp, meaning it can emulate a variety of specific amplifiers and effects pedals. It comes with 50 preset sounds spanning the history of country and rock, but all of them can be modified or replaced entirely. I selected this amp primarily because it's small and can model all of

This is my initial response to the Boss Katana MKII 100. WOW!I deliberated about whether to buy the 50 watt or the 100 watt. I decided that I'd rather have more and need less than have less and need more.The 50 watt would be plenty loud for home use and small venues.I am very impressed with this amp. I've never been a tube amp snob

After researching like crazy; it seems that there's a ton of Katana fans out there, so I went ahead and purchased the 50 watt version. The volume control/attenuator down to .5W is awesome for me, since I live in an apt. and don't want to disturb the neighbors. None of the amp models that this had (Brown/Crunch/Lead/etc.) went quite heavy

I have been working as a full-time professional musician in Nashville, TN for several years, and have acquired tons of gear. Recently I've been exploring "desktop" practice amps.

Just Received the Spark amp a couple days ago from amazon. Took it out of the box plugged it in, it blew my other amp out of the water! There are many dials on the amp itself to adjust the gain, bass, delay, reverb, etc. There are also different modes you can set such as glassy, metal, hi-gain, bass, acoustic and some others. But, where

Just to clarify, the amp itself has nothing to do with the sounds being generated for backing tracks: your phone or tablet is creating/synthesizing the sounds and Bluetooth-ing them over to a receiver in the amp. So the quality of the Bluetooth (connection, latency, etc.) plays a big part in the jam that you're playing over. I found that

Small footprint is great. I use it for the Boss Katana so it required stickers that come with the amp to re-label the buttons. The lights could be brighter though.The Katana is an amazingly well designed amp. Rather than focusing on "bells and whistles" (it could use a few more of those, actually) they built an amp that sounds

Just got this and first off mine came as a Boss labeled not the Roland. That made me very happy because I didn't have to add the stickers that came with the Katana for labeling pedal switch as compared to Roland switches. Plus is got Boss labeled on so it goes with my amp. It includes a nice long enough cable to plug into amp. This pedal

It’s a footswitch that changes between channels. It works as advertised. I can’t give it higher praise because I feel like this thing should have came with the amp. You can’t change effects within a channel, I was under the impression you could. So you have to have each channel set the way you want it example if you have three

I have owned several high-end guitar amps, so when I bought this as a starter for my young nieces, I wondered, frankly, if it would be good enough. I was particularly concerned about sound quality (especially the chance that it might hum or buzz), tonal variability, and overall build quality. Well, Fender did not disappoint. The sound

I bought my amp so that I can play without disturbing my family when they have conference calls or online classes. My headphones work well with this amp.

For years I've been trying to achieve a raw guitar tone something like you'd hear on Blitz "All Out Attack" EP, The Stooges "Raw Power" or AC/DC "Let There Be Rock." By raw I mean not much gain compared to modern high gain bro-metal amps, but still sounds like the tubes are moments away from catching on fire. This

Product is great. It performs several functions for me.1. I can provide a hotter signal to the amp (fx loop) without increasing volume.2.

If you're trying to decide between this and the TC Electronic Ditto, go with this. It's buffered, which helps your signal on long cable runs (true bypass can be a bad thing), and the display that shows where you are in the loop is VERY helpful. It can also run off of a 9v battery, unlike the Ditto.Here's the default behavior, which was

Yamaha THR30!I upgraded to the THR30 III (from the previous model THR10x high gain version, that I used almost daily for over 8yrs) mainly because of the built in wireless capability.

This would be a five star review except for the choice that Yamaha made in removing the rack compressor (much finer control over the compressor) and in removing the delay effect. I like this amp. But, the compressor has too much attack for my taste. The finer control offered by the compressor in the previous models suit my needs better.

First of all, the value of this pedal is priceless. In other words, it is truly amazing but will not break the bank. Donner has created a pedal that operates as an ABY box as well as an AB box. Let me explain further.An ABY box allows you to take a signal, such as a guitar in my case, and will let you connect to two amps simultaneously.

The Donner ABY pedal is a passive device that routes your one guitar signal into two amps or two guitars into one amp. This unit can alsao be used on an amp such as a Vox AC15 to access the two seperate inputs and combine them. In describing these possibilities on th accompanying video I mixed up the two into one, but you get the idea.

This is a good multi-purpose amplifier. It has two dual-purpose inputs, (meaning you can plug in either 1/4-inch or 3-pin cables) so you can plug in two mics, two instruments, or one of each, with separate volume and tone controls for each input. Its 40-watt capacity means you can use it as a PA in a small venue, and you can also use it

I have an older style Acoustasonic 30 that is much larger, has "chorus" effect and sounds great with an acoustic.

It does have a very generic sounding reverb, but no chorus. My guitar also

Pretty darn versatile. In a way, it's a lower gain version of the Mojo Mojo. Same sort of feel - percussive, giving a DOD 250-like snap to the attack. The three-way switch allows it even more EQing versatility than the bass/treble knobs. I'd use it in much the same way I'd use a Timmy, but it's got a different kind of feel. I'd say,

This pedal works exceptionally well as a perfectly clean boost with a versatile EQ that allows you to add that famous Echoplex pre-amp "secret sauce", with a three position toggle to select overall tone.
