  • Kustom Defender 5H?

    I have a friend that wants a tube amp, but doesn't have the cash, and some one is offering him a Kustom Defender 5H for 50 bux...

    He's been bugging the hell out of me these last couple of days for advice, but I have never been motivated to even try one


    Are they worth $50
    Or could he do any mods to make it sound good?

      He usually plays with a metal muff...
      Would it hold up?

        I found it was good for clean to lowish gain stuff. A drive pedal works okay with it, but the amp gets loud VERY ****************ing fast. They also hum pretty loud, but if your friend plays loud enough he won't notice.

        I have no idea how it would sound with a metal muff. I don't get what is so hard these days to just try something out.

              I have one (see sig). I got mine off local classifieds for $70, and it was worth it at that price. $50, tell him to hit it.

              I used mine for band practice for months and it kept up fine. It's super limited in stock trim: it has one decent sound and that's it. With the volume at about 10 o'clock, it's loud as ****************, and just breaking up into something AC/DCish. I used that as a semi-clean rhythm tone, and my SD-1 to kick it into full-on crunch. Past noon on the knob, I found it fairly useless, as it was still loud as ****************, but the overdrive was kind of ratty and blatty, and it wanted to feed back really badly.

              ETA: It would probably love your friend's Metal Muff. It likes my SD-1 at pretty much all gain and output settings (and the SD-1 actually makes it into a fairly versatile amp). Also, there are quite a few mods out there for it - everything from adding a master volume or tone controls, to retrofitting it with a new OT and a socket for a 6V6.

                A 5 hour round trip to just TRY an amp of that league isn't worth it for him.

                HELL, I live 1 hour from the seller, and I wouldn't go

                  Lol, aren't they 100 new? I would buy it new from GC shipped to his house, and use the 20 dollar off 99 or more coupon :shrug: then he could return it if it's bad.
