Beautiful Amp - Great DealFirst I need to say there is nothing wrong with this amp. I liked it a lot, but it just didn't work for me. Using it as a practice amp at bedroom levels doesn't do this amp justice. It needs room to "breath".
Loved the FX loop and the clean sounds you can get out of it. Unfortunately, at least in my case you need to get the Master past 3 o'clock to really hear the difference in the "tweaking" options, which is very loud for a 12x12 space.
If you can let this amp run in a larger space. Get it! It is that good. I hated to see it go back. But will revisit at a later date.

Great little amp!Was looking for an amp for small gigs/venues that would take my pedals well and keep the warmth and clarity. Spot on! Not too heavy (unless you walk 5 blocks with it), easy to use, good sound and great volume! The only downside is that it doesn't have reverb; real bummer for me. They could've at least put in a cheap digital reverb to have some spacial sense (not even asking for a tube echo). But whatever, for the price and the way it transfers my tone, I'll stick to my delay to give me some space.

Versatile Little AmpNeeded a low power Guitar Amp that could produce lots of different tones and this is it.. I use it in a studio asnd don't actually need channel switching since I track one setting at a time.

Huge Variety, Huge ToneI recently purchased the Tweater 1x12 Combo and I have been thoroughly impressed. It literally can pull off any tone you want it to with just a few adjustments. Don't expect a large amount of gain, as this amp is more centered around clarity (although the dirty side sounds great). I use this amp with several top-notch pedals (JHS, Visual Sound, etc.), and they all sound better through this than any other amp I've played on. I was somewhat disappointed with the FX Loop (thus 4.5 stars) because it sounds somewhat muddy, but I love how pedal sound when directly inserted. This amp is a great value and a big sound and incredible clarity for its small size and small price.

Versatile Studio AmpI bought this because I wanted a versatile studio amp and it delivers. From cleans to dirty and everywhere in between. True, it does not have a reverb, but that is easily rectified with the effects loop or a reverb pedal (but I'm knocking off a half point for it anyway). With a Strat or Tele it has a great blues or country sound - or if you want a classic rock sound, it does that too with just a few tweaks of the switches and knobs (no modeling here). And 15W is more than enough for a mid-sized studio.

Tube Combo NirvanaThis is a great little combo amp that covers many bases well. I've owned this amp for a little more than a year now and it's taken every tone I've thrown at it. I play alot of blues and this amps rocks for that purpose as it's only 15 watts and you can really crank the master volume without killing your ears. It doesn't necessarily excel at high gain if you're into modern metal, but that's why Blackstar makes the DISTX. I use this mostly on the american/vintage/normal/deep setting with low gain and the master volume cranked. It's blues heaven. There's not a bad tone in the amp however, and often find myself switching over to british/modern setting for a little thicker tone with more mids. I use a Fender Classic Player 60s strat (stock) with these settings. It's the most satisfying amp I've ever owned or played through. I don't use the AC setting very often, but the strat and a delay pedal on the AC setting is spot on U2. The only drawback is that there's no footswitch. I've remedied that by using a Vox Satchurator for dirt and the aforementioned Blackstar DISTX for extreme metal with my Jim Root tele. You can't go wrong with this amp. If you're like me and your tonal taste changes from time to time this amp is perfect. If you're on the fence go ahead and try it out. Sweetwater is the best in the business and have an awesome return policy so you can't loose. If you love tube combos this amp is highly recommended.
