Well, as to the OD tones, keep in mind: stock, they come without a tone capsule, and the amp is supposedly voiced like a tweed Bassman. IDK how accurate it is, but I prefer the amp with the Ultimate Blues tone capsule, which is supposed to be a BF Super Reverb on the clean channel, and a Marshall Super Lead on the dirty channel. I LOVE the dirty channel. I seriously love it. And that's high praise coming from someone who used to play Marshalls, and currently owns a Bad Cat Hot Cat and a Fender Supersonic 22 (which also has a great dirty channel).Probably my only criticism is that I don't feel like the overdriven tones really come through on a video (any video, not just this one), but it's not really a criticism per se - that's where the leap of faith is required to actually get the amp (or OD pedal, or whatever), and hear how it sounds in the room, and in the flesh. I certainly hear enough evidence that things are sort of going in the right direction, for sure.
...If I just would have held to my conclusions from the other BC videos/demos I've seen (where they go through the various Tone Capsules in realtime), I probably wouldn't have ever seriously considered getting one. But this video is considerably more compelling and convincing.
The Tone Capsule adds $$ to the price, of course, but I have zero regrets: light, loud, sounds GREAT (especially OD tones) at any volume. Like I said, 2 years with my band, and I have no desire to replace it, or even to bring my Hot Cat or Supersonic to rehearsal/gig.
