I bought this amp to get a feel for how my LP would sound through a Marshall. I prefer Vox amps. But this little amp has made me fall in love with Marshall amps. It has a great clean sound, but then the distortion can be used for those dirty sounds. I have played this at home. If I play it in my room, my roommate can hear it on the other side of the house. And that's not even at full volume and gain.
