This is a magnificent amp for the price! You can get a pletora of tones using the Tilt and Presence knobs, plus you have the TMB knobs, which work perfectly fine too. I thought it was going to be a very bright and fizzy amp, but it is not at all. It has a very warm and balanced sound. The EL34 tubes are just great. This amp sounds much better in person than all the demos i've seen on youtube. The celestion midnight speaker is also great but i'm into getting a creamback and replace it and see if it is a worthy improvement. The builtin attenuator mode is awesome. You don't lose a bit of tone on any of two attenuation modes, marshall nailed it with this technology. The pull boost knob also adds a nice amount and balanced amount of punch and overdrive to the sound. Very satisfied with this purchase, a great great amp!!
