Actually, it was last week. I had originally bought a Vox Pathfinder 10 combo (great amp, btw - I was blown away by how good it was) but I returned it in favor of this because I have a couple of 1x12 cabs and this will integrate better with my HX Effects and Tech 21 FlyRig. It's a 20 watt solid state power amp and a hybrid pre-amp using a single 12ax7 for gain. It's basically a Micro Dark Terror in a pedal format. This thing has a bit of an identity crisis - it has no idea how small it is It really doesn't sound that great at "bedroom" levels, the gain gets mushy and the bottom end loses it's tightness. Crank it up through my Bassbreaker cab with a Celestion V-Type and it sounds massive, full and tight. Might be the most organic, touch sensitive solid state (ok - hybrid) amp I've ever owned. Through headphone (or line out for recording) it also sounds amazing and you can get a huge range of tones from creamy, to classic metal, to scooped just by twisting the shape knob. I wanted to wait a few days, at least, before posting this to give it a proper test drive. Now I want a second one so I can run full stereo with the HX Effects. I already have two of those Bassbreaker cabs.
