Aurait pu être parfait , vraiment dommage...

Test Ampman modern. Cab palmer 112 + eminence the governor 16ohm , ampman --->13W ,guitare ibanez rgrt421.

Avant toute chose , il faut savoir que le channel A à un manque de volume par rapport au channel B , tous les boutons réglés à midi. (environ 8 -10 Db)
Pour résoudre le problème , on est forcé d'augmenter channel A pour égaliser le niveau de volume ,et de jouer sur le sagging pour gagner en volume. (volume chan A ---> 15h , sagging 14h , volume chan B ---> 12h ,sagging 10h )
Le tout bien dosé avec le Master.

Du coup on ne peut plus augmenter channel B comme on veut si on alterne jeu clair et saturé , et quand on sait que monter le volume de channel B (et A) donne quand même légèrement de la consistance au son (même si sagging joue son rôle parfaitement ,le volume joue quand même un peu ) ,ça frustre.

Le boost :
- il donne environ 12Db d'un coup sur channel A , avec un gros crunch. Handicapant si vous avez réglé comme j'ai dit au dessus, on se retrouve plus fort que channel B..
- il ne donne pas de volume au channel B , mais agit normalement comme un boost pour donner du mordant.
Voila ... à tester en répétitions pour voir ce que ça donne.
Pour le studio ça ne posera aucun problème je pense.

Channel B La distorsion:

-typé HK , donc grasse et granuleuse ? Je sais pas trop ,mais c'est mon ressenti.
-y en a assez jusqu'a midi ça suffit largement!
-ne pas dépasser le sagging au dessus de midi ,sinon c'est de la boue!

L'EQ:

Pas d'EQ traditionnel , mais presence ,resonnance et tone font un bon travail.
Certaines pourraient trouver que resonnance ne donne pas assez de basse , mais à l'oreille il y a suffisamment ce qu'il faut à mon gout.
Presence donne beaucoup d'aigu par contre ,à bien régler.
Le tone rajoute du medium à gauche et les creuse à droite.

Les +++ :

+Très bonne qualité du son , clair et saturé sans comparer à un tube amp.
+Noise gate très bonne
+red box AE , très bon son
+se souvient des réglages noise gate ,et cab sim pour chaque canal.
+smart mode est genial (en boost et fx loop , cab IR)
+présence ,résonnance et tone efficace ( tone <--british O american--> )
+boost , efficace en channel B mais il y a mieux.
+FX loop on/off (ma digiverb et ma digitech obscura passent très bien.)
+Bedroom level parfait.
+très bon pour le home studio , zero encombrement.
+bonne puissance à 13w

Les ----- :

- le boost qui donne 12db d'un coup activé sur canal clair (channel A)
- le manque de volume de channel A par rapport au channel B , tous les boutons à midi.
- pas très pédale "friendly" , test mxr fullbore metal(:mrg:) et turbo rat ,channel A ---> bof bof.

Conclusion : Mis à part les quelques défauts de volume qui peuvent se gérer , l'ampman modern est un très bon ampli transistor à mes yeux au vue de ses caractéristiques ,surtout à la maison et en home studio.

Ich liebe ihn jetzt schon!
Chris7771, 17.03.2021
Ich habe den ApmMan modern erst seit ein paar Tagen und möchte ihn nicht mehr missen. Er ist vielseitig einsetzbar, ich bekomme jeden gewünschten Sound damit hin. Rock, Metall, Funk - alles top. Mit Sagging und den anderen Ton-Reglern geht einfach alles. Besonderes Feature ist das Noise-Gate. Ich spiele ihn an einer 112er Box in meinem Arbeitszimmer; der Sound ist fett und präsent. An einer 108er von Orange - na ja... Da schreit er einfach nach mehr Membranfläche. Aber zum Reisen eine super Kombi, wenn man eben keine große und schwere Ausstattung mitnehmen möchte. An meiner 412er habe ich ihn noch nicht getestet. Dürfte aber wohl dramatisch sein ;-).

Negatives: Fehlanzeige!
