This baby is aawwesooome! I'm 52 years old and have owned many amps, large and small, from Fender Vibro Champ and HR Deluxe, to Vox Night Train, Carvin Nomad, Peavey Bravo, etc. With all the 2-channel options and master volumes, etc. this gem is the first one I can play out and get the power tube "bloom" without destroying my ears and being constantly told to turn down. I can mic it with my Senheiser E-609 and send all that glorious tone to the board, where the sound guy wants it. The clean tones are very nice as well. With a little reverb and an analog chorus and delay you can cover almost anything you can imagine, and at a volume you can live with. I love this amp and my Strat, Tele, and LP do as well. Now I want to buy another so I can leave it at the church where I play most often. Then I can carry this one around wherever else I go.
