Cabinet that used for test:

External appearance (Design):
The little bit puritan-vintage style is absolutely meets with my taste. The placement of the control knobs is very good and gives easily visible overview. The player immediately knows and sees where he should put his fingers if he needs to adjust something (if he knows what he wants...). The design is perfect, inherently authoritative! Professional job.

Sound (clean and distorted channels, compressor, EQ, tone, etc.):
You can feel the „headship” at the first moment! Spreads away on the stage, but not violently. Not neccessary to play on high volume to hear and feel during the concert. Dynamic, clean, pure tube sound on such a deep tone that you can "lean against" yourself with this. The 'Color' exceptionally good, you can set anything on the EQ (however, I did not use it on the concert). I felt the Compressor a little bit lazy. The sound what the bass player wants to hear when he standing on the stage - is built into the amp

Features (Effect-loop, foot switch, safety solutions, etc.):
I did not try the Effect-Loop. Fuses for each tubes, adjustable fan speed - these are very nice features. The labels and the rear connection options are clear and unequivocal. The mains inlet is professional.

What kind of other amps should be build (combo, different power range, etc.):
Maybe a combo for smaller clubs, because of their smaller stage. Possibly, a 500W power station to feed two or more loudspeaker cabinets (not stereo - monoblock).

Suggestions (further features, appearance, etc.):
