I would like to refine my answer a little more beyond my personal opinion. The Super Reverb is a well known amp for its cleans as well as it's ability to get those classic tones. At 45 watts going down to 2 ohms you have plenty of headroom. Being a 4x10, you have plenty of volume even at lower settings to make the amp usable at 99.9% of the gigs you will get in your guitar playing life, that is from heavy metal and grunge straight down the line to super clean jazz and country on the neck pick up. Due to the extremely clean and sparkly nature of the original amp design and the faithful circuitry of the reissue providing almost the exact same tones, it makes this amp in all of its iterations the perfect pedal platform, as there is very little tonality warpage provided by the circuit. Meaning that the sound that comes out of this amp is the sound of your guitar and whatever pedals you put in the middle. Weighing in at 68lbs or 30.85 kg. This amp is relatively light compared with some of its counterparts. For comparison, my Fender Hot Rod DeVille 2x12 (Completely stock) is approximately 82lbs or 37.2 kg and a Peavey VT series is 96lbs or 43.5 kg. As far as getting this amp to sound like others, most pedal manufacturers have you covered. Just stick a Wampler plexi-drive or vox-in-a-box pedal between you and the guitar and you are set to get everything from Marshall to Vox to Fender. In addition to everything else I mentioned I would also point out that this thing also features two completely separate and isolated channels normally one with reverb and "vibrato" or tremolo and one without. Meaning that if you have a complex delay and loop system you can run everything into the clean side with whatever you may have going. Hit your switcher or a/b box thus switching your guitar to the other channel (in this example the reverb side) with a completely different set of effects and eq settings. Now you are a whole band with one amp and one guitar. Back to my opinion: Modeling amps may be more versatile without pedals, and other amps may be louder, Fender quality control may be sketchy at times, and you may wonder if its worth lugging the extra weight around. To those of you who ask those questions my answer is this...does your little solid state modeling amp really have the gig-ability and mojo of this versatile powerhouse? Can you really beat the tone of this amp that has been sought after since its conception? If you have not had the opportunity to play through one of these things once, don't just take my word for it. Try it for yourself. it may not be for you...but it is always my go-to amp.
