Monster of a head
This amp was amazing right from the first time I played through it. It's uncomplicated EQ layout makes it super easy to dial in a wide pallet of tones. The only thing I disapprove of is putting the FX loop on the front, its not the best solution, it's very cumbersome to have cables out the front of your amp. There is plenty of room on the back of the amp so there is no reason to put it there. Continuing, the clean channel does break up quite early if you really dig into it, but the availability of low and high gain inputs lets you select a configuration that works for your set up. The presence and resonance controls are the MOST important controls there are, I didn't bother to play around with them and boy was I wrong, they drastically change the behavior of the amp. One thing that surprised me from the beginning was the volume, I run it through two Trace-Elliot 1048H cabs and I was disappointed with the volume. Turns out this amp is such a monster the outlets in my house do not provide the minimum 15A the amp needs to run at full power. Long story short, great deal for the money. Buy it.
