    A few years ago I obtained a Rouge SC 40 I think it is.
    It is a SS amp.
    It had a blown speaker, so I paid near to nothing for it.
    It has 2x8 speakers. At the time Musican's friend had Weber 8" Alnico's on sale for $35.00 a piece. I had a store credit of about 25 bucks, so I ordered two.
    Well I got to tell you, when I put those Weber speakers in it, it blew my frickin mind.
    For a Jazz amp, it is a delight to hear.
    This amp right now can be bought for $79.00 at MF..Rouge is their house brand I understand.
    So that plus the price if two Weber Vintange Alnico's you can have a really sweet jazz amp that they claim can put out 40 watts. The Webers are 15 watt speakers, so in theory you could blow them up. But I doubt this amp would do it.
    The reverb is nice when used below 5 after that it gets spacey.

    I'm using a Vox Pathfinder 15R at home. I like this amp a lot. I own also a Peavey Classic 30 but this one sounds only pretty when playing loud.

    I've only ever bought solid state amps. I use tubes when I'm playing at a friend's house, but I don't really like them. Not bright, or cold enough for my tastes, even with new tubes.

    If I ever find a good deal on a used CR120H, or the combo versions, I'd LOVE to have one. Any complaints?
