Jet City is a good introduction into quality sounding guitar amplification. These amp have a good sound to them but they are cheaply made over in China. That being my only beef with this company. Other than that these amps alone no matter where they are made sound fantastic.

This is more of the Soldano Hot Rod 50 amp. It has two channel one for normal which would be a clean channel and also gets some crunchy tones to it. The next channel would be the lead or overdrive channel. This is where things heat up tone wise. You get a tube buffered serial effects lops which is nice and an added foot switch to control and jump between the two channels.

SOUNDS

This amp sounds so hauntingly familiar to the sounds of a Soldano SLO. I mean it doesn't have all the same features as the Soldano SLO but the basic part of the tone is there. That juicy thick 80's voiced overdrive that can be heard on countless albums over the years.

I love the way the lead /overdrive channel takes flight when you give it some preamp gain juice. This thing will cranky out some nice chugging type thick fat distortion tones.

OVERALL OPINION

At new these amps come in right at around $499. Not a bad price for a 50 watt head that has two channels. This is a great amp for people looking to get a high gain amp and don't want to break the bank to do it. I would recommend this amp to anyone who needs to stay under or right around $500 and need a good working amp for high gain tones.
