After being played many great amps for the last 20 years I became very choosy and spoiled. At first I decided to sell it but luckily no one bought it until I understood what a mistake it was. This amp can not do the high gain modern stuff, it is frustrating to see that you need pedals in front to push it for that but when you push it does a very unique throaty and vintage type hi gain that no other amp can do. However it nails every other amp in crunch. Just max the two channels, gang them and you'd get in heaven. For clean stuff it is indispensable for country style or any type of clean sound that cuts through any dense mix without a touch of eq. The eq controls are totally useless because they seem like boosting or cutting a few dbs even at maximums but I tell you, no need for them, the amp itself sounds very unique. Another important thing is, this amp sounds dull with v30s, you need to put it through a g12h75 30 watt, then you will know what I'm talking about. I deleted the add I put for selling it after actually changing the speaker. I also highly recommend a hi output pickup since classic seymour duncan 59s are just the worst choice for this amp (dimarzio's super dist pups made me a happy man!).
