This actually isn't a bad little amp. With the right speaker it sounds very similar to my 5F1 build. Swap ina Weber CVA8 AlNiCo Speaker would get you very close for only a little dough. The Weber AlNiCo Signature 8S is good too, but I much prefer the CVA8 for a more tweedy tone. It currently is on sale for $89.99, but most Sundays they have 15-20% off sales and the amp can be had for less than $100 shipped!
