You can get good results without additional gear (only guitar+amp)

Extremely clear user's manual.


My personal solution to get the sound I always wanted from this amp:

Old 31-band EQ in the FX loop (I bought it really cheap on ebay)!

I now get every sound I want.

I use it to attenuate the shrilling high frequencies and to shape the low-end.

I will soon buy a good analog compressor

to get a well-balanced and personalized sound.


It's been one year.

I like the amp's possibilities when it's combined with 2 or 3 well-chosen effects.

I own several amps.

This one has a very personal sound character.

I like it a lot and I won't sell it.

Good value for money.
