This is the hieght of German engineering. This amp is a metal guitar players dream amp. This amp will blown down doors and bust through walls. This is a three channel amp with a clean, crunch, and lead channel. Each channel is extremely usable and friendly to just about any music. However, this amp's voicing is tailored to a metal players amp. What that means is the voicing serves towards the metal style rather than a blues style voicing of an amp such as a Goodsell or a Fender amp.

OVERALL OPINION

At new these amps come in at around $999, which is a great
