Bye bye nano valve!
Had a chance to hook it up to a 12” 8 ohm speaker in cab (eminence from 90’s from vox) and again, I can’t emphasise enough how much of an improvement this is to plug into a proper cab. It sounds like a real amp! It needs an eq, a pedal would suffice I’m sure. Never got round to trying that.
But, the big flaw, for me, is the lack of headroom when cranking. It’s not a little bit overdriven, it’s tons!!!! Fine if you were doing solo’s, but other than that, no good at high volumes. I tried rolling back the volume and it did clean up but then lost some volume, so no help for me.
So I think that’s it, no more 5 watt amp testing for me. They’re a great idea, I love it, but I need something that I could use at home and take to a studio if I’m feeling lazy. This isn’t it sadly.
Would be interested to try a zt lunchbox, but one thing is more apparent than anything…….small speakers just don’t reproduce the lows a full size speaker does (at loud volumes)
Oh well, onwards and upwards!! :-)
