    Looks like an Atari 5200!

    Yeah it honestly looks like a piece of home AV gear.

    Yup, I still have it. Makes a great pedal amp. 30W - 12" speaker.

    This came up in my YT feed this morning and made me think of this thread.



    I had one of these too, and it worked great for me back before I knew anything about guitar tone. This guy actually got a decent sound out of it.

    I started out with this amp. The cleans were acceptable I guess, but any distortion just sounded like ass.



    I like how the guy didn't bother to tune his guitar.

    ^ The distortion sounds like he's playing anesthesia.

    This was the second head I owned (My first was a Hiwatt because they were cheap as hell back then and no-one rated them). I'd forgotten what this even was until one came up on FB marketplace, I bought it because it was cheap and looked a bit like a Mesa Mk, the distortion was buzzy and I could only afford a Soundtank pedal, so no idea if it could ever have been made to sound good.
