    I play through one regularly, it's a great and very loud amp. If you're looking for either clean tones, or full-out Van Halen tones, it's the amp for you. The "edge of breakup" tone is achievable, it's just hard to dial in. If you really need 100 watts, get the 100. But this amp will do very well for most venues and home playing.

    Two more questions

    does the presence knob miss on the 50?

    And what about the power selector? Does it do a good job to play at a bedroom volume?

    The .5 watt power selector is GREAT for bedroom volume.
