Amp's type: HYDRA 100W head
Artist: Magasvári Viktor
Band: Beatrice
Date: 26.08.2013.

Where tested (practicing room, concert, studio, shop):
Practicing room, concert

Instrument that used for test:
Ibanez Roadstar II.

Cabinet that used for test:
Powerstate-Celestion

External appearance (Design):
Great design, but if I would be the manufacturer, I would make the logo colored,
moreover illuminated.
Today's people more likes to hearing with their eyes.
Even the musicians are awarded a first impression on the outside.
Let be seen the gear from far, on which the player plays!

Sound (clean and distorted channels, tone, etc.):
It is perfect by my opinion. I would not poke out. Compared to the american amps, it sounds slightly under the singer's range,
not disturbing the vocalist - opposite with the Marshalls.
The dynamics of the sound is very good, it remains quick and clean with distorted tone too.
Can not be washed away, not mushy, but healthy. There is a kind of unique sound, that added to the sound, I really like it.

Features (Effect-loop, foot switch, etc.):
I did not use.

What kind of other amps should be build (combo, different power range, etc.):
Depends from the aim. Cheap, home-used combos are well sellable, but this market segment is over-covered already.
But the legendary Vox AC-30 has no competitor,
however can be made better than a Laney VC-30.
Maybe, beside the bluesy tone can be integrate a stronger rocky voice to produce a good combo.
The boost function is mandatory. I would like to try a simple, clean voiced tube head, where is effects are forgotten.

Suggestions (further features, appearance, etc.):
