UTILIZATION

The configuration is it simple?
- Very simple
Gets it easy to sound good?
I struggled initially found a sound that I liked at the clear channel, then after some manipulation it was good.
about the tube screamer, no adjustment liked
I do not find them very responsive potentiometers.

The manual is clear and sufficient? ..
yes, even need, apart from how to connect a reverb in the loop

SOUNDS

Will it fit your style of music?
for rock, blues with a charvel st custom, it goes malgrés a grain a bit cold and not very warm, on the other hand with ibanez af 125 nt anything I liked.

I do not like the sound of the tube screamer.

OVERALL OPINION

How long have you use it?
I only used two months after he fell down a snoring that occurs from time to time
Have you tried many other models before buying it?
not exactly, it's my mistake I have done it, I regretted my purchase hurry, I wanted an amp and a lamp was the one in my price

What is the particular feature you like best and least?
reflecting the only thing that caught my eye was initially this is a little vintage white side.
I do not like the fact that the tube screamer is incorporated in the amp, Ibanez could have something else or just put a clear channel

How would you rate the quality / price?
With experience, you do again this choice? ...

500 euros for it not worth more if it was a remake I would try something else
