It'll take a minute to figure out all the switching options. The loop is probably the best sounding loop I've come across it. I used this with a TC Electronic G-system with the "four cable method". What a great versatile set-up with a minimum of gear to carry.
Ah yes, this is like a channel switching Deliverance. Or so I thought. Not quite, but such a nice sounding crunch and lead channel. And the clean channel sounds and feels like an old amp. A wonderful ride.
The Fryette Sig-X is super dynamic and articulate, but not as tight as say a Pitbull Ultra Lead. It whispers, growls, screams and sings. On any channel. And very good investment for any one trying to let their own sonic signature come out. And fun to play.
I'd go so far to say that this amp will even appeal to guys that spent their life on vintage amps and wouldn't be caught dead playing a channel switcher as well as modern players.
