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..
