Here are some excerpts:
Channel 1 is great for modern rock clean tones – think jangly arpeggios, strummed palm-muted power chords prior to stamping on the channel switch for a metal inferno, or full single-note melody lines.
Channel 2 is crunch city, capable of rich, punchy chord work, but it’s also great for blues-rock lead, and it reveals the Bad Boy 120 as one of those amps that maintains the character of the guitar you’re using, rather than putting too much of its own stamp over everything.
Channel 3 has a bit more dirt to it, with a harmonically rich character which shoots overtones all around the room in an almost surround-sound, three-dimensional way.
The Bad Boy 120 is a great option for players who need a versatile range of tones from clean to mean to scream, but who don’t need the extreme bass and jagged treble of a more metal-voiced amp. It’ll cover country, blues, rock, fusion, stoner rock and traditional metal styles with ease, and it’s full of stage-worthy features to make it a breeze to use for live work.
And, like all DV Mark gear, the construction quality is completely flawless.
