I've been wanting one of these for years. Seemed like the perfect home tube amp. I had a Laney VC15 before and stupidly sold it. Anyways, Amazon has these at $925 now, but for one day the price dropped to $552.40 !!!. So I hit the buy it button. Going to sell off some pedals and maybe my Blackstar Artist 15 amp. The Class A 5W EL84 power section is perfect for home use. I can get good tones at any volume. If I want to push the EL84 power section, I can do so without it being stupid loud. The clean channel breaks up nice when cranked. The reverb is "ok" and useable, but it's no spring reverb. The Blackstar's digital verb is better. Both the Laney and my Blackstar have Celestion G12H30 Anniversary speakers. The Blackstar with it's 6L6 power tubes has a more Blackface tone and has deeper bass than the Laney. The Laney stomps all over the Blackstar with it's drive channel. Classic rock tones. The Artist 15 is more a clean-ish amp that needs pedals for good drive tones. Happy Camper!
