This is not a modeling amp so you won;t have choice of a bunch of different amp tones or models. Also this is not an amp that will do any effects. So You cannot get delays, chorus, phaser, or flangers built into the amp. This amp does has some reverb so that is the only type of effect that comes built within the amp itself.
This amp has a decent clean tone and tales pedals very well. You get a good chimy tone not like a Fender but more like a better sounding plexi tone. Unlike a lot of clean channels in amps that may have a high gain channels as well the clean won't take distortion pedals very but this one does with pride. You also get a good crunch channel that sounds great and very usable for a general music or covers tone. The third channel or lead channel shares the same EQ with the crunch channel. So whatever you have set there will transfer over to the lead. This is designed for soling and lead tones.
These amps have been discontinued for a while now. They have been replaced by the JVM series amps which is my opinion are not nearly as good as the TSL or DSL series amps. This is an amp that you can pick up on the used market for right around $500. Not a bad price for a good working combo v=all valve tube amp.
