bought this for Jaegar, one of my twin 12 yr old sons, So he didn't have to take his Heritage 810 to school. Wonderful and he can carry it. I read numerous comments about the fan noise. Not sure what the big fuss is about. haven't noticed it. Perhaps the complainers aren't playing classic rock at the proper level. LOL at $300 its cheap (cost wise) when compared to the Ampeg SVT heritage amp and 810 being taken out of the house and possibly damaged. Thank you to our sales engineer, Chris.
