Well I bought one of these just over a week ago. I'm honestly so impressed. I bought it on a whim (for cheap too - was on sale) because I've been curious to try out a Champ, and my main amp is in for repair/upgrade. Now I see what all the Champ / Sweet Baby fuss is about. So simple yet so nice. I haven't done the cap mod (yet?). I did try running it into a 10" cabinet just to compare, but I think I like the stock 8" more. I'm also experimenting with pedals to see what pairs well with it. So far my top 3 ODs are the KoT, Mojo Mojo and One Control Bee, in that order. I have a Red Llama clone on order (Chicago Stompworks) so we'll see how that goes too. Anyway, thanks for this thread - it was helpful as I was deciding whether or not to spring for the Sweet Baby. I'm glad I did.
