Just know that it's a loud amp, in every way. Only need to bring it up to 4-5 for bar gigs and even that's on the louder end for me. But the amp itself is loud, even when not playing. Seems like it's a loud fan in the back. I brought it back and got another one and it's doing the same. So, not the best recording amp. But, I needed an inexpensive (relatively), portable, loud amp and this is it. When playing with the band, fan noise obviously is washed out, even when miked. Otherwise, I love it. Nice tone, volume and portability.
