Now it is working perfectly after getting rid of the burnt molex connector.
So I tried to get the blexi sound with it by running my Box of Rock in front of it on the clean channel.
OH BABY does it ever cop that Marshall sound this way!!! You can either get that edge of breakup sound to that fat slightly bass flabby brown sound in spades this way!!
Then on to the OCD in front and it'll give you that late '70s through '80s sound.
The amps own crunch and lead channels go through the rest of the modern up to searing face me,ting metal tones!!
And then there's STILL that really really nice clean channel.
I was also gobsmacked by how good the Danelectro Black Metal pedal sounded in front of the clean channel too. The cool thing is all these pedals are true bypass so they can all be in tandem in front of the amp.
I did try my G-3 in the loop for time based stuff but I wasn't too impressed with that.
So ... so far it seems to be a really good amp. As an aside the pots look flimsy as hell in this thing but they look easy to replace if you should break them.
Actually after having had 4 or so other Bugera amps and poking around inside of them I can't see where the
criticisms are from as they are really easy to work on and removal of the individual circut boards are stupid easy.
