GuitarGear.org reviews the Galileo 15

Jan. 13, 2012, 12:42 a.m.
GuitarGear.org of the USA discovered the Galileo 15 amp, and awarded it 5 (out of 5) "tone bones" and had zero "cons" to report. You can read the full review here.
Here are some of the highlights!

"Unbelievably rich tone with lots of clean headroom for a low-wattage amp. But you can dirty it up just fine by adding more pre-amp gain. Super-responsive dynamics as well, and the dirty tone cleans up nicely with volume knob or lightening up pick attack."

"This thing is light, weighing in at just over 10 lbs. The accompanying C112 1x12 cabinet weighs about 15 lbs., so lugging the head/cab around to gigs or rehearsals is not a problem. This light weight points back to the Markbass bass amps which are known for small size and weight but a big sound; and does this amp have a big sound."

"The clean tone was fantastic. We were both impressed by the amount of clean headroom that amp has! ...  I scooped the EQ and was rewarded with a beautiful, deep clean that I could play with for hours."

"One thing that immediately stuck out with the amp was how loud it was. That alone was impressive because right away, I knew this amp could cut through a mix quite nicely. The 1x12 cabinet houses a custom B&C neodymium speaker rated at 150 watts. I imagine that the speaker is voiced with a fairly robust bottom end, which is probably why the amp sounds so huge. But the cabinet also seems to project and dissipate sound really well because even at lower volumes, the single speaker really filled the space.

"As far as dirty tone were concerned, the Galileo 15, powered by EL84 tubes reeks with Marshall-esque tone, but with a slightly more robust bottom end. As such, the Les Paul growled quite nicely. There did seem to be an ever-so-slight filtering of the highs, but I believe that gives the amp’s tone its unique character. It’s voiced similarly to a classic Marshall 18 Watt Plexi, but its slightly darker tone gives it a much smoother output. Needless to say, I dug it."

"The Tone Bones score says it all. This is a great little amp."
