This amp is simple and really nails a great British crunch. Both the vintage lo and hi really have a nice British flavor. It is certainly a little different from say a marshall but that should be expected. However it is very close to Marshall crunch. Here is the catch you get a nice fenderish clean from the clean channel. I know it says that it is a one Channel amp but really it's more like a 2 channel that has a clean and then a crunch with 2 modes. It does have shared EQ but that has not been a problem for me. It will go pretty high gain but this is more of a classic type amp and will not do the nu metal thing. For me that is very refreshing I'm so tired of all these amps trying to be all things to all players and then end up sounding like junk. This is a great amp for Gospel, Blues, classic Rock and even Hard Rock.
