So I've been waiting for this to come out, need a good practice amp for rehearsal and hated lugging my Ampeg Reverberocket head and cab. Well I don't even know where to start. Playing in a punk rock trio I need an amp that can fill a lot of space. I plugged it in at home and was very loud. Could it keep up with a drummer? Um yeah! My drummer hits hard and plugged into a 2x12 it kept up. Deep switch feature was nice. Wasn't too fuzzy. I like a Billy Gibbons kind of tone. It's not a metal like tone, fairly smooth and vintage. So while I'll never give up all my tube amps this was a good buy at $199. It's definitely not a toy.
