NAD! Crate Blue Voodoo 60W

okie dokie. The peavey classic 50 would have been great, but it was beat to hell, and the caps needed to be replaced. 400$ is a great price for a good shape one, but not for one that needs 200$ in refurb work...

sooo... perused The mighty list one last time before succumbing to Guitar Center...

And this bad boy popped up. Guy literally replaced all the tubes last month (sovtek? any good?) with a new cap job. tolex is kinda worn on some parts but not too bad.

DEFINITELY LOUD ENOUGH! LMAO! Its ridiculous for a 60w amp. He owns his own law firm downtown so we jammed in his office at full blast for a few minutes. My ears are still ringing (mission accomplished?)

Clean channel sucks. Like, anything over half volume and it distorts. On the clean channel you get some SICK blues sounds though. The dirty channel is "ok". Its a very transparent amp to be honest, which is good, cuz I like pedals! Through a keeley ds-1 it gets pretty accurate brown sound going on.

Physical construction is nice. Feels VERY solid, super heavy duty corner casters give me some peice of mind.

All in all, for 200 bucks it was a good amp for the money. Certainly not as good as my 5150, but it will do the job.
