Hey fellow guitar tone addicts! This
week I get to review the Bugera V22 all tube amp. This inexpensive lil amp has been really
impressing me, maybe you’ll be impressed, too!
I’ll also feature a speaker shootout between the V22’s stock speaker and
the WGS Blackhawk. Truth is, the V22 sounds so great that I’m
not sure the Blackhawk will make that big an improvement. Only one way to tell ... let the demo
begin! This vid starts out with a
thorough tone demo of the V22, then the speaker shootout.
Once again, the short answer is: YES!
The Blackhawk did provide a bigger, more complex tone along with a fair
increase in volume, as seen on the SPL meter. As always, there was no trickery involved; just
a passive switch between the speakers and identical mics in identical positions
at identical levels. Next week, I will
be featuring another very popular low-buck tube amp: the Jet
City/Soldano 20. We’ll also see how
the Jet City likes the WGS Retro 30. See
Note: I just checked comments and feel I need to add this: If you leave comments that simply state that my playing stinks, or use foul language ... We'll delete them. I always make it clear that my demos are speaker tone demos ... NOT guitar playing show-off demos ... plus, well, we WGS folks ain't nothing if we ain't NICE :-)
