UTILIZATION

Channel 1: beautiful clear sound (and it is clear even with the gain all the way!)
Channel 2: Here it crunch my friends! (For fans of ZZ Top and other American rock bands, this is the best!)
By varying the gain is also obtained very beautiful bluesy sounds
on the other hand, not for metal! But that's not what I wanted.

SOUNDS

This amp is really great for me: The sound is very typical American and this is what I needed to complete my set (I also have a Marshall).
It is great for blues, jazz, funk, country, perfect for rock (channel 2 is a killer!)
I play it with strat, tele and Les Paul: It's all him.
You can play alone in the house (in 25W mode) and it is significant for an amp of this power.

OVERALL OPINION

What I like most: The sound (Celestion Vintage 30 part for many)
What I like least: The Reverb (a bit too long and too sensitive for my taste)

Excellent value for money for an all-tube amp from 50 W to 800 euros.

I use it for 1 year and I would do this choice without hesitation.
