    I don't know how many Matamp fans are on this website but I just got this guy and wanted to show it off. It's the most articulate and clear amp I've ever played. The low end is incredible. It also sounds amazing for bass. The build quality is flawless and it's also the loudest amp I've ever played. It makes my other Matamp (GTL 140) not seem brutally loud. KT88s>EL34s. Before I got this the GTL was the loudest amp I've ever played. The GT 150 also takes pedals like a champ.

    Tl;dr Matamp good.

    I've been gassing so hard for a big, doomy amp, lately. This certainly isn't helping. Happy NAD!!

    It's interesting, you always think of these amps as wall of pure nasty fuzz, but I didn't expect it to be a very clear amp. That's cool.

    Matamps are incredibly clean and clear. I have a GTL 140 that the old owned had modded to have more preamp gain and it doesn't even get Metallica level gain when you crank the gain all the way. It's also one of the highest gain Matamps ever made. Imagine a boosted Plexi but way darker. They get a fuzzy overdrive but they're not the huge fuzzy monsters that people think of without fuzz pedals.

    Matamp is the company that made the original Orange amps in the 70's and the 90's reissues.

    That's so awesome man. I have two of their 6 channel mixers and 4 (transistor) slave units but no tube heads yet. Definitely keen to get my hands on one but it's so hard to decide which haha

    I've played a 1224 a few times and it was one of the most versatile amps I've ever played and the clean and low gain tones were absolutely incredible. It also had the best reverb I've ever played in an amp. The GTL 140 I have is the same thing as a GT1 when you don't switch the master volume off on it. It's just 40 more watts.

    Happy NAD! As a bonus, when you want to renovate your house and need to knock down some walls, just turn that thing to 7 and you're good (turn to 10 if you want to knock the whole house down).
