Washburn BD75R Reviews
I bought the Washburn-BD75R amplifier with a Samick signature series guitar. The amplifiers retail price is $699(AU) although they had brought down to $520(AU).
I got this guitar through my guitar teacher who was the one responsible for the very low price. The amp, I bought it from a music store in Parramatta, Sydney, Australia called "Music City" they also gave me free freight.
The things I like about this amplifier:
:The great looking but solid metal face.
:A niffty little switch at the back that takes most of the humming sound out of it.
:The very noticable reverb and master vol.
:Effects loop with level controls for both send and recieve jacks.
:Normal gain and high gain equiped with contour which gives it more of a crunch for all those metal fans.
:The normal gain channel has only a slight difference between 0 to 10
:The little rubber handle to lift it doesn't feel relighable enough to be lifting 23kg up a set of stairs
:There is always a humming sound but that has happened with all the amps I have played with.
:Most amps around or over 50watt come with a footswitch but this amp doesn't which I am not to happy with.
:The 12" speaker is only Bad Dog equipped and is not celestion equipped this I am also not happy with.
2 channel dual EQ
Effects loop w/level controls
External speaker out
Retail Price $349.90(US)
I recomend this amp only to players who play in a band that dont play big gigs or people who play to themseves. The amp is good for playing in the street or in parks. I don't recommend this amp to be used infront of a big crowd.
If you buy this amplifier be prepared to spend a little more money on it.Fruciante
