Exactly what was expected

I own various Vox amps and regardless of the combination or effects used I could never get a heavy enough overdrive with them. I know Mesa is known for their overdrive but was hesitant to spend the money for even the smallest version but a friend talked me into it. It was well worth the money after hearing it in person. It produces the natural high gain and harmonics right out of the box. And to my surprise the clean side is better than I would have imagined, nice lows and mids on the clean channel. Solid construction, just be aware you do need to supply your own speaker cable for your cabinet. Also know that for a small amp that even goes to 10 watts it is quite loud. Mine is hooked up to a Marshall 1960a cabinet and I can barely turn the thing on before it's too loud for a sleeping baby in the house, and the serious gain comes from the 25 watt channel and forget that if volume is a concern. Or get a smaller cabinet I suppose but I have not tried that yet.

Best in class, plays way over its weight

This is just an amazing little amp. Can't say enough about it, the clean tones are excellent and the overdrive tones are scary good too. Can hang in many different contexts too, its awesome clean tones make it incredibly versatile. I just gigged it for the first time with my R&B group and it kicked butt. Can't wait to fire it up in my TX blues outfit. Handles different OD pedals in front very well. Effects loop works great too. I don't think I'll be hauling my heavier amps to rehearsal ever again, nor will they be seeing nearly as much gig time as they used to, it's just too easy to travel with this little guy... easy to carry, but NO compromise on the tone. FUN AMP.

I read lots of reviews for this amp before I finally decided to pull the trigger and buy it... I had bought a solo 50 rectifier from ebay, but had problems with it so I sent it back... SO GLAD I DID... when I first took this amp out of the box, I literally thought "no way is this toy looking thing going to be able to play large venues"... boy was I WRONG... this amp has some of the best tones I've ever heard, and LOUD! I turned the master up to 3 on the dirty channel and was literally almost blown out of my bar stool... the construction is top notch, very solid.. you can tell this amp is hand built.. the tubes are easy to access... I cant wait to play my first gig with it this weekend, in a LARGE venue no less... you wont believe your ears..
