Let me start by stating that I'm a gear hoarder. Yes I know it's an OCD disease. But i have a good job, and when I see a guitar or amp I must possess I just buy it. So now I have over 50 guitars and 30 amps in the house.....hey at least it ain't empty pizza boxes. Amp wise, i got several Marshalls, Boogie, Fender, Vox, Reeves, Soldano, EVH, and on and on. All tube. For the price of this i had to try it. Believe me, folks, when I tell you, Orange has nailed this. The reviews are correct.....this comes so close to the sound and response of a tube head you will be shocked. And for the price of two pedals, it's one of the biggest bargains here. Of course if cash is no object, I'd get the real McCoy.....or get this and with leftover get a Clapton Strat!!
