Excellent Birmingham store service - Dave A****
I was greeted by a chap called Dave and i explained i was interested in buying another guitar, a Fender Stratocaster to be precise. I explained i wanted to try a few options and in particular i was attracted to flashy looking guitars. I selected several to play and Dave took me to a practice room where i spent a couple of hours playing different guitars. His knowledge was excellent and he was very patient. Dave listened to what i wanted as a musician and provided the right equipment when i needed it followed by advice on the differences between each one. I settled on a very good guitar and a couple of pedals. If you are going to buy from PMT, GO TO THE BIRMINGHAM STORE.

Overview

Hayden Amps offer timeless elegant products handmade in Essex UK with traditional values combined with modern features using the finest quality components and built with care and devotion. The Classic Lead 80 is a handmade 80 watt 2 channel rock monster.

Free of superfluous gimmicks, it gets you straight to the sound with a performance reminiscent of '70s British rock moving on to more aggressive, modern tones.

Rated at 80-Watts, the Classic Lead strikes the perfect balance between the characteristics of a 100-Watt design - particularly the low frequency response - and the advantages of a 50-Watt amp, most notably the ability to drive it harder at gigging volume levels.

Channels 1 and 2 vary only in their gain structures, 1 being medium to high gain covering subtle warmth to a huger, 3D crunch, and 2 taking things further into full, saturated, sustain without a hint of fizz. Presence, bass, middle and treble controls are provided for tone shaping but the Classic Lead won't make you work hard to get a great sound. It's all there, straight out the box. Presence isn't something you need to dial in on the the Classic lead - it's already going to be right up there in your face.

Dual master volume controls keep the levels matched when switching between channels and the Classic Lead also includes a true bypass post EQ effects loop.

The Classic Lead isn't just about tone. It's also about response. Unlike other valve amp designs, the Classic Lead doesn't rely on negative feedback in the circuit design to deliver a 'pleasing' sound at the expense of dynamic response. Using custom-wound oversized output transformers, the Classic Lead 80 plays with you rather than against you, tracking your playing extremely quickly and making you feel truly connected to the sound.

When reviewed by Guitarist magazine they were quick to award the Classic Lead 80 with a coveted Guitarist Choice Award and commented;

"...loud, fat as hell and with a wicked, instantly lovable rock distortion tone."

"...five stars for sound."
