    I played the 15 watt version in a store. Good sounds - but it does not have a foot switch to switch between the "structures". I did find a good distortion pedal - I used a Wampler Clarksdale - with the lowest overdrive structure produced some good sounds.

    There are others here that own these - I am sure they will have some more / better feedback.

    It is a good sounding amp line.

    I own the 15W combo and it's pretty much all that I play through. Now that being said, I don't play out so I'm not sure how it would do in a band/gig setting but for my purposes I love it. It's exactly what I was looking for when I bought it, great classic rock crunch on the medium gain setting.

    The low gain setting is a great platform for pedals and even the mid-gain setting works great with pedals. I haven't spent much time on the higher gain setting so I can't comment on that option.

    I also think the Celestion V-type speaker works great in the amp, it's a very balanced speaker. I have no desire to replace it.

    It's not for everyone but it's exactly what I was after.

    Hmmmm it almost sounds that this amp is proving to be as advertised .............

    Good to know,

    I plugged into a 15 watter briefly at GC and really didn't care for it. For me it's a bit of a one trick pony. Good distortion but for cleans and crunch I think I'd rather have a Blues Jr or Pro Junior.

    I played a 45 combo in the store recently and it was awesome! Didn't go any further than 22,5 watts with the attenuator; I was afraid I'd blow the windows out of the soundproof room I was playing in. This thing is loud if you turn it all the way up! The attenuator is a great addition to the amp; great tones at low output volume. The "both" channel is what I liked best, fat and tight bottom end and crystal clear highs. I'm seriously considering buying this beast of an amp.

    A lot of threads on these new ones both here and over at the gearpage.
    I liked the 007. Nice marshall job for a fender. Not sure about clean settings.
