Okay first impressions. Box was kinda beat up, but the amp was packed excellent, no issues there, it's all good. Plugging straight in, it's plenty loud on both channels. It's not possible for me to plug straight in and get a satisfactory crunch tone on the dirty channel at the kind of low volume I'm looking for, i.e. Baby sleeping in the next room. It is okay for getting a nice bluesy tone at that kind of volume. The clean channel, I do not like it at low volume. If you crank it up it gets some character, but at very low volume it sounds very sterile plugged straight in. Now the good stuff. I have a Vox Stomplab modeling pedal with some very nice custom edits that I put together. Played through the clean channel these sound great at low volume, and that's what I was hoping for. I haven't even tried running the Stomplab through the effects loop yet, I just put it out front. Thats about all the free time I've got today. I'll post some more observations when I get more time. Oh yeah, it looks super cool too!
