i dont get it wtf does ass sound like? lol
how the hell on earth can they sell and advertise it as being a high gain valve amp if it aint? is it a weak gain or does it sound like plugging into your hi fi, now that sounds like ass..
reviews say iits mega hot!! what amp on the market could you compare it to? or a song `that has this 'ass' sound on it, and do the valves glow?
i emailed an st100 owner and he said the gain isnt every1s taste but with his ts9 for kick it throws out a satch / nuno sound, what dya reckon?

-1

don't be another ignorant metal kid....low gain can sound good.. it depends on your style.... to some classic rock/smooth jazz guy, ASS= high gain...


ass= muddy,thin, weak, cold, winded, ect... imo
that b52 doesnt have lots of gain...i'm sure if you dimed it out and had some hot pu's.... maybe even throw in some jj's, and set it up for el34's....... then i guess you could call it "high gain".... but there is much more to tone than gain... and whatever it is, the b52 is lacking it...
trust me, the triple x has better tone, more gain, and a better clean.... go ahead and look into it... but i wouldnt reccomend it, especially for a blind buy.

For some one who wants to play Death Metal, a low gain amp is gonna sound like ass.
This amp might be Ok for black metal because black metal seems to have less gain and thinner sounding tone.

Thats my point, you may not like this amp because it doesnt produce warp 7 levals of grunt for cradle of filth and alike but for somebody whos playing virtuoso shred it could be excellent value for money. so do the valves glow?
to be honest i think the marshall dsl series heads suck but slash wouldnt be without them.
perhaps if you had been fortunate to have had 2 or even 4 speaker cabinets with the head you could have altered the sound to sound wider. thats what i did with the crate blue voodoo i didnt like the botttom end of that amp coming straight to me so i hooked it up to 4 cabs and it sounded impressive other wise i would have shitted all over the damn thing.

I'm not sure, I didnt have it very long.

Im sure with a tube screamer, some hot pickups, some better tubes, and someother modifications I have no idea how to do, this amp COULD sound somewhat decent. But theres only so much potential a amp has. This amp had very little of it.

fucking christ!!!! try the damn thing out!, hell do a blind buy if you really want a mean looking amp... but if you don't like it then don't cry around here about it.
i personally didn't think it was very good for any style that requires decent amounts of gain.

i think you under estimate the LG-412. its pretty kick ass and up there in quality with big name companys. also with its 5 year speaker and life time cab warrenty it can take a beating, and if i breaks... ill pick up another one.

(and were those peavey cabs new? because mine was.)

oh yeah and it has an interchangable gold and chrome logo! can your mesa/boogie cab do that? i didnt think so!

Yeah.. that b-52 cab sucked... For the price its ok, but you can get a much better used cab for the same price. Who cares if its used? As long as its not going to stop working.

celestion 30 greenbacks???? haha..... i think you mean either g12 30's or greenbacks.....
either way you're full of shit.
peavey cabs use sheffeilds, not celestions.
mesa's usually have vintage 30's...
and standard 1960 cabs have g12t-75's...(some versions come with other types of celestions).
theres no such thing as a s.s. cab.. but yes, i'm pretty sure they're talking about the lg cab for the s.s. head... and what are own speakers?

that's not ignorance dumbass.... learn what a word means before you use it the wrong way and you yourself become the ignorant one.

anyways, you came here asking about the b52 tube head... we told you it was no good in our opinions. it lacks clarity, gain, punch, ect.... so we told you to keep your triple X or look into a better amp than it....
rather than taking our advice you kept talking about how mean it looks and how you bet you it'll be mean as hell.... so i said to try the damn thing out or do a blind buy... because you've been warned... if you like it, great, if not, we told you so.

what makes you think that? have you ever used a tube screamer? it might, but why would you bet on something like that?.... if you want more balls and clarity out of an amp, you can get it modded, or buy some sort of aural enhancer like a sonic maximizer or aural exciter.. to put in you fx loop.

no it's not, it doesnt have as good of speakers at top notch cabs nor does it have the same quality construction... thats probably why it has such good warranty... a quality cab should never need warranty.
