When can you say that 25W is way more than you needed? When you get this amp! Just to make sure, I am no expert as my main instrument is the drums, but I have always enjoyed playing guitar and songwriting. This is without a doubt a high gain AMP, meaning is not for everyone or will not necessarily satisfy all your needs or styles as it is definitely more on the modern to heavy metal side of the sound equation. For me it was perfect because it was exactly what I was looking in terms of sound and projection and by far exceeded the volume that I needed. Incredible clean channel and the lead is a dream for the modern rockers. I am yet to put a pedal in front of it to make it sing into further dimensions. No integrated Reverb definitely will make you go for that effect pedal at least, but even its simplicity in terms of sound makes it even more focused on its raw power and sound quality which is something that I did admire on this amp when I heard what it could deliver and how the instruments were sounding. One piece of advice... try pinch harmonics in on this thing...Amazing!!!
