WHAT OUR TEAM THOUGHT
It serves up A-class powerful sound and allows for some honest tone creation. It is powerfully impressive, it performs beautifully with pedals and could honestly do with an attenuator for what it's pumping out. It is one of the pricier amps on today's hot-list but it's worth shelling out on.
