Simply awesome!


Looking for great classic rock tones? Look no further. This simple amp is packed full of that great 1970's era British tone that we all love so much. The great thing about this amp is that great tone is available at a reasonable volume level. Don't get me wrong I love that dimed stack tone but my poor old ears just can't take the ear splitting volume associated with the non-master volume amps of yesterday. The CS 50 allows you to get those golden tones at a nice volume level yet still packs the horse power to stand up next to those 100 watt monsters quite nicely. The 30 watt mode is a little deceiving however, it actually sounds just as loud if not louder than the 50 watt setting and it has a bit of a different tone. In the 30 watt setting you can still keep up with 50 or 100 watt amps. All in all this is as close to perfect as one can get in a single channel amp.
