Bad Boy 120 and C412 Standard reviewed in Strumenti Musicali

Oct. 26, 2011, 3:30 a.m.

The Bad Boy 120 and C412 Standard reviewed in the October issue of Italy's Strumenti Musicali. Here are a few highlights translated from Italian:

"The first thing that hit us is the light weight, always welcome. The power/weight ratio is good, considering it's an full tube amp."

"The channel 1 is geared for clean sounds, and is great for arpeggios and funky riffs. Mid and presence help a lot for getting distinct sounds, depending on how warm or sharp you need them to be. The compression is very nice and natural. Channel 2 is dynamic and very good for slightly distorted sounds, it’s a sound that is both warm and solid. The channel 3 is hi-gain but perfectly tracks the every detail of  technically difficult parts."

"The Bad Boy 120 is a head with top construction quality and reliable components."

"The three separate preamps for each channel work vey well and create completely different sounds. The controls are very useful--all the necessary ones are included, the unnecessary elements are not. All of that is offered at very attractive price." 

"The C412 Standard cabinet is the perfect match with the Bad Boy. Thanks to the custom neodymium speakers it is able to handle all the pump that the head is able to give, conveying correctly the sound at all frequencies. The 600 watts of power handling make it great for open stages, with the big advantage that it weighs just a bit more than 20 kg."
