I really wanted to bond with this thing, but after two weeks, I took it back.Why? Not really sure, it just irritated me. I came close to "That Sound" I have been looking for but it wouldn't go further. No standby, hard to get it to do "Real Tube Amp " things like smoothing out when hot and cranked. Too piercing, too digital. I ran it through several 12's, set it on a stand, tried it with every guitar I own. It is basically a 2 trick pony, clean and setting 16. Now, I'm not criticising it for folks who love these amps, I loved it too the first night. But I found a better sound. I purchased a small Yamaha PA with a subwoofer and run my Digitech pedal through it along with a TC Helicon Create for my mike preamp. Flame away, but for this bedroom studio the sound blended clearly and sounds wonderful! I'm not sure I need another amp cept my old 5 watt Valve Jr. Thanks for hearing me out.
