I wanted a good head for recording or small gigs and this checked all the boxes. Controls are very easy to use to dial up everything from a clean piano like tone to a heavy edgy sound. Selectable midrange control is very handy for cut or boost. You have two xlr outputs, a transformer balanced pre and a preamp out that's selectable pre or post eq which is handy for both live and studio. The only negative is that it was missing two of the cupped washers to mount it on the cabinet lid.
