REVIEW: BRUNETTI XL R-EVO II


Hello everyone and welcome to this week's article!
Today we're going to review a beautiful head: the Brunetti XL R-Evo II !

This all tube head comes in 2 versions, the 60w and the 120w, but both versions features a 15w switch to allow us to play at "bedroom volume" too.
The head, handcrafted in Italy but exported worldwide, is very complete when it comes to features: it has a slot where to mount a rack multieffect inside, and a Midi-in to switch the channel together with the rack patch; it also features three channels (Clean, Boost and Xlead), each one with an independent eq section.

This amplifier features 5 preamp tubes (5 12AX7) and 4 power amp tubes (4 EL34, only 2 for the 60w version), which makes the sound warm and full of attack.
Speaking of sound, this amplifier boasts very deep lows and roaring low-mids, giving to the clean channel and the crunch an impressive body and warmth.
The Xlead channel has an impressive amount of gain, although to play extreme metal with enough clarity a booster is recommended.

Lately the producer has released a limited version of this amplifier, the XL R-EVO LTD, which mounts a 70w power amp, and some custom feature.

Overall a very suggested amplifier, from a solid italian reality capable of being confronted with the international top seller brands.
