CORIBILT 16 CLIENT TESTIMONIALS
This amp has a natural or `organic’ tone reminiscent of a souped up vintage tweed Champ or Deluxe.
For me, this amp's sound is perfect for everything. I play a variety of styles, blues, classic rock, country, jazz and more.
My guitars are a Les Paul with Sheptone humbuckers, an ES335 with 57 Classics, and a stock US Strat.
The amp stays clean up to about half volume, then has wonderful progressive breakup all the way to full volume. You can play it at a high volume setting and use guitar volume to go from clean to full growl.
I use outboard OD pedals if I want more distortion. This small amp is loud enough to cut through the mix and project very well in the venues I usually play (small clubs etc), and for larger gigs I can just mike it.
It’s also a very silent amp on stage, and I attribute this to Cory’s unique grounding scheme based on the practice of mounting components on a solid copper ground plane to minimize hum and noise issues that often result from poor grounding. This was one of the reasons I chose one of Cory’s amps.
My Coribilt 16 watt amp sounds how I want it to sound!
An amplifier is the projector for the guitar sounds I hear in my head. Mine sounds the way it does, because its custom tuned to my ear. It will “quack” with my Strat, chime with my Tele, crunch with a humbucker.
It’s a touch sensitive amp. The harder I strum, the more top end breakup I get. Roll off the volume a bit on the guitar and/or play softer and it cleans up great, without adjusting amp level.( soundmen will dig this)
I can get overtone harmonics that are so controllable, with a distortion patch, that I would normally have to run at 8-10 on a mass produced amp.
I now own the best amp I’ve ever played.
