UTILIZATION

The amp takes awhile for tweaking to get the right tone, but after that, watch out. It's somewhat deep, with the Bold/Spongy switch, Diode or Tube Tracking, so it takes a bit of playing the amp in many situations to really hone in on the sound that you want to get out of it. Effects loop is a great feature, always, and this one sounds good.

SOUNDS

This is a fantastic sounding amp. It gets bonecrushingly loud, with gobs of liquid sustain and razor-sharp jagged metal shard-rhythm tones. The clean is pretty nice if running a verb or delay in the effects loop. This gets uber tight, and very quiet - any stop-start or palm mute techniques are heavily accentuated with this amplifier. Nearly every great rock and metal band or guitarist has used this amp over the past 20 years, and with good reason - it rules.

OVERALL OPINION

I'm giving it a 9 overall. It would benefit from an onboard reverb, just to give a bit of depth. The price is a bit expensive, but for being a nice handmade American tube amplifier with a lot of features, it's priced just right. This amp will go from Who and Hendrix to Morbid Angel and Bloodbath, so it can nail nearly any type of distorted tone. Allan Holdsworth even said this is one of his favorite amps ever! That should give a good idea of how versatile the amplifier is. This amp rules, and I wish I had two.
