The best Amp ever devised by mankind
Except there are two issues. No speaker output ergo no cab connection, nor any attenuator. However that can be fixed and I'm in the process of seeing how to connect the speaker wires to a 1/4 in. jack who knows. Also no reverb (and no tremolo but hey get a pedal and suck it up) the fender tube reverb is classic and I wish it had it. Other than that this baby is the absolute best amp I have ever ever played on i'm a guitarist for 26 years i've owned tons and tons of amps heads, cabs, etc. I have had or gone through probably 70 pedals i mean i've been there and done that. All I can say is this has such high clean headroom that it literally does NOT breakup. So what? get a tube screamer if you want a break up. I turned the volume up to 5-6 and the walls were vibrating. Needless to say, I did NOT try to get to 12 and thats another innovation. The volume goes to 12 on each channel one bright one normal with bass,treble, and presence. its extremely simply to operate and use. Its wonderful on pedals and guitar rigs in general. I would say that with all the hype with these amps that contain models, or f/x, or fancy crap like three channels you know i.e. marshall, egnator, etc., this amp is a refreshing change (or rather retrospective adaptation) and its the kind you'd find Eric Clapton playing on. I've owned the Marshall's and those kinds with their overdrive. I say make it SIMPLE. do not get those hyped amps. Get a simple amp with one maybe two channels, and simply use pedals to adjust your sound. I consider this amp the most pure form that is out there. Oh and you cannot get it anymore unless you can find it used and the price is from 1500 - 2500 or so. I scored a b-stock demo for well I won't say but I am extremely lucky to have this. I love the tweed as well. It just has that look to it that keeps you coming back. I highly suggest you get NOS tubes and replace whatever is in the amp when you buy it just my two cents. Its pretty straight forward changing the power, preamp and rectifier tubes. I honestly don't know if I will ever by another 2x12 again. Maybe a 1x12 to be more mobile since this amp does weigh about 45 pounds but nothing beats this.
