Love this Amp
Let me start by saying I have been playing for well over 35 years. I play rock and blues exclusively. I own several American Fenders, a Les Paul and a Paul Reed Smith. I also own several 7 other fine amps by Blackstar, Fender, Vox, and Egnater. I no longer play the clubs but I record a lot of original tunes in my home studio and I do not use computers of computer software to record or manipulate the sound. I plug in to an amp and I mic it to get the sound to my console. This Vox and my Fender Bassbreaker 007 combo make stellar recordings. Low wattage is where its at. I crank this amp and my ears don't bleed but I get all the sweet, singing, buttery overdrive and sustain without using a pedal. I don't care how good the pedal, there is nothing like playing through an amp that does what the pedal tries to do. Having said that, this amp takes pedals very nicely. If I want to paint with a different tone, I'll step on a stomp. The clean tone of this amp is also great. That Vox chime is beautiful but the dirt is what really shines on this amp. Pleasure to records with.
