Everything has been said already ;o)
An amp from the pre-modeling era ;o)

UTILIZATION

Easy to dial in, you just have to turn the knobs and it shines, but be careful, the controls are really sensitive and offer a pretty broad sound palette. The manual is available online and provides quite nice settings as well. The sound is from another world.

SOUNDS

It has been my amp for ten years and I don't have any intentions of changing that. Ideal for funk, you can get a crystalline/clean Fender-like sound and an unlimited versatility for rock/blues/Jazz. I play with a Godin LGX / Ibanez JEM / Fender Stratocaster, etc.
Guitars gain in personality and can give it the best they have. In short, it's an amp that will fill your eyes and ears with good sensations! You can also get very warm, almost cloying distortions. To be honest, in these ten years I still haven't experimented with all the possibilities the amp has to offer...it's incredible!

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using it for about 10 years.
You can really tell the quality when playing in a band. It's bright, well-defined, with dynamics, precise even when there's too much hubbub.
It is not for sale anymore, obviously, but if you want to get one secondhand to get rid of your old Marshall, go for it, even if you haven't tried it out.

The +: Rare all-tube amp, almost magical
The -: Very heavy, get a cart to move it around
