B-52 LS 100

GJ7T0351.jpgEVEN THOUGH IT’S ONE OF THE MOST AFFORDABLE AMPS IN THIS ROUNDUP, THE B-52 LS-100 HAS THEpower and features to share the stage with any amp here. The solid-state, 100-watt LS-100 hasa Clean channel, two Overdrive channels, an effects loop, and even a line out for recording. Despiteits wide range of tonal options, this amp is simple to use and provides instant gratification inboth clean and distorted modes. The Clean channel is straightforward with a 3-band EQ and aMid Cut button. It excels at very clean, pure sounds, and with the Mid Cut engaged it almostsounds like you’re playing an acoustic guitar. With the Mid Cut out, you get fuller, warmer tones.This channel is capable of huge headroom, remaining clean even at deafening volumes.

On the dirty side, you get a medium-gain Overdrive channel and a high-gain Overdrive channel,each with its own Gain and Volume knobs, although they share the 3-band EQ. Both candish out an incredible amount of distortion and are perfect for chugging metal tones and gutwrenchinglead sounds. There is a Contour control that can be assigned to either Overdrive channelor both. This is a super-intuitive control for changing the overall midrange character of theLS-100, from old-school bark with more mids to a fully scooped death tone. We liked it with Gain1 about halfway up with the Contour set for a mid scoop and Gain 2 cranked with no Contour.This made it easy to switch between a tight, chunky rhythm tone and a louder, more mid-heavylead tone that could cut through any mix.

The LS-100’s rear panel is fairly simple, but B-52 provides level controls for the effect sendand return—a welcome addition. There is also a level control on the speaker-simulated RecordOut. This obviously comes in handy for direct recording, but it can also go to a mixing board,saving you the hassle of miking your LS-100 on a gig. The LS-100 is full of versatility, with tonesthat range from sparkling clean sounds to killer heavy tones with monstrous gain. This amp is amust-have for rockers who want a powerful, great-sounding metal amp at an unbelievable price.—Stephen Ordonez
