Great clean tone...not enough amplitude for my needs
The sounds that come out of this guy are truly fantastic supper clean, great tone, takes pedalboards really well. It also seems to be really solidly built.
However it is not a particularly loud or powerful amp. I paired it with a Bogner 1X12 and had to crank it to maximum just to play with a drummer and a bassist. If I were to perform with a 2nd guitar, keys, horns, etc there's no way this guy would keep up.
The Bogner literature boasts that this thing has huge headroom, and while head room is relative, I didn't really find this claim to be true. They also say that the 1X12 sounds very 3 dimensional like much larger cabinets, and while they are the best sounding cabs I've ever played through, I found this to also not be true.
Calculating amplitude based on Watts is a tricky thing my Fender Blues Jr. 15 watt amp is almost as loud as this Barcelona...although again not nearly as nice sounding.
At the end of the day I really do need to stress this is an amazing piece of gear. It literary upset me to return it because I was so in love with it's sound. If you're rhythm section isn't too loud or your doing jazz clubs then I can't recommend this unit highly enough. But I ended up returning it & I thought I'd help the Sweetwater community members the same frustrations by managing expectations. There is no magic box & you can't get around the laws of physics. A small box sounds like a small box. If you want a bigger sound for a full band purposes you're gonna need something bigger and more powerful.
