I got this amp used for $300 as an upgrade from a small practice amp. I had a choice between this and a Fender Princeton Chorus.

I picked this amp over the Fender Chorus because it has a much better bottom end. The dual 12 drivers handel extreamly dropped tunings quite well. Also I love the foot switch that it comes with. You can switch between any of the three chanels and control the digital reverb and chorus independantly. Also, relativly good distorted sounds are capable at a reasonably low volume when set up correctly...But beware, this thing is louder than most people think. I only got it up to about 6 and stuff started falling off the wall and the neighbors complained.

The digital reverb takes some getting used to and I don't really like the way that you have to choose the reverb you want(its selected by a lettered rotary knob). I would also prefer to have a foot switch that is not compleatly made of plastic.

This thing is built SOLID. Its not as heavy as it could be, but its still a workout to get it to where you want it. I also ran some frequency sweeps on it and those twin 12's can almost go as low as my practice bass amp! I'm sure that this amp will last me through college.

I'm very happy with this amp. Even buying it used, there are very few problems with it overall. I did have to fix a small shortage in the foot switch once, but that was just after i bought it. And at 130watts, its louder than what i will brobbably ever need.
