    drop tuning

    I have had this amp for just under a year now.. I love it.. and just wanted to say this amp is great for drop tuning. Im in drop A with a 68 gage string. and it handles beautifully. the clarity is unreal. no flub here. and the emulated out put works quit well. only thing i don't like is the connection for the foot switch has extensions for locking it in place.. like and old monitor connection for a computer. female to male threaded little craps. these are easy to lose. otherwise i love this amp..

    Definitely A Keeper

    Easily the best amplifier I have ever owned or played out of, the 200W probably isn't necessary, but really if one amp goes to 10 and another goes to 11, I'm going to 11.

    Rips

    Yeah, this thing is amazing.

    Firstly, this thing has power and gain to spare! It's a perfect metal amp, but can easily be rolled back to be a more versatile rock / pop / blues amp if needs be. The crunch channel is especially tasty.

    A lot of features that this amp is sold on (ISF / amp voicings) have zero place in a live setting, but make it incredibly versative in the studio. However the power amp control, the midi in/out and many more features make this a perfect live amp as well.

    Tonally and from a control point, I would give this amp a 5/5 review, however, I just can't overlook how insanely heavy this thing is, and why oh why did they put the heaviest transistor known to man on one side? It's a slug to carry around and in my road case, this guy clocks in at 38kgs - That's 83 Pounds for our American friends - which makes it impossible to fly with and well, roadies hate me now!
