    Forgot to add...I tame mine with a Badcat Unleash or. Weber Mass Lite. They both work great.

    I have a Black Face with a 1 x 12 cab and the only downside is that it has more power than I ever need. To overdrive it, you need some space between you and anyone who doesn't want to hear it. It also hisses more than other amps I have, due to it being a beast.
    But even at reasonable volume it sounds great.

    Why you should get one:

    It's a cool amp. You can use it with whatever speaker cab.

    You can get it for a good price in the US.

    It's loud enough for any style if you use it for guitar .

    You can also use it for bass.


    Why you shouldn't get one:

    It doesn't have a mids knob (although you can use an eq pedal if you really need that).

    It won't be loud enough for bass in a loud band or with a loud drummer, I mean the 50 watt model of course.
