My Marshall 8080 finally gave up the ghost and my Nephew bought a Katana. Between that and the reviews it seems worth a try. The Sam Ash down the street had one in stock with no issues. The unit iself is sharp and looks like what i consider an Amp should look like. The sound is good to great as it allows tweaking/morphing the sound in many ways. I would recommend. Note: placing the sound in Clean and then turning on other effects brings a sweet overdriven sound, think 70's clean leads with taste.
