Value For Money : Poor
All Tube Amp, 6L6 for amplification can be changed for EL34 (not tried)
2 channels. clear channel that can switch Pushed (crunch which adjusts the gain level)
saturated channel 2: 3 distos different raw, vintage and modern, also adjustable gain
General volume settings, per channel volume, presence, gain (degree of saturation of lamps), treble, mid and low
footswith + channel change with volume pedal built. (solo)

UTILIZATION

Easy, I love the integrated volume, convenient to boost live on solos or choruses, I find it difficult to do without it now, the only downside lost tenth of a second to move from one channel to another
precise adjustments

SOUNDS

My style is mostly rock, pop and some plans metal.
I use a Telecaster James Trussart, a strato relic of 1960 and a custom shop Gibson Les Paul Custom. the amp really respect the sound of each guitar without denaturing them.
I love the first distortion which is pretty raw vintage (for the Mesa ...), as well as its channel Pushed clear, bluesy sound is excellent even if we never reach the heat of a good Fender, in it's pretty clear as artificial sound, this amp sounds particularly well with humbuckers, Gibson or type or type EMG and others according to the given style.
the 2nd distortion is very nice too Feedback successful, sounds slightly mushy and very dynamic.
the modern high gain distortion is a killer, hardcore, metal, etc ... it just tears ..... never seen that for the fans ...
Super versatile amp that I do not like this formula, the sound is when the same type in its type and the settings are fine so that you can vary the tone by taking the time to set the machine in clear as saturated

OVERALL OPINION

Used for a year, with a mesa 2x12 cabinet and it's been really bad, a chest that has nothing in common with a classic combo (cons with it's heavy to carry around)
a high price, it seems very reliable and robust, clear and saturated sounds are varied and follow the sound of my guitars
amp complete and not just for sound Metals, unlike beliefs.
