The tone from this amp is remarkable. The clean channel is brilliant on its own. It has a sparkle character that makes you feel the tone of the guitar in your hands. There is a quality to the guitar amp that makes you notes just pop and chime the way you desire a good clean channel to give you.
The overdrive channel sounds fantastic in both humbucker pickup guitars and single coil pickup guitars. The tone is robust and smooth at the same time. It is an amp that just sounds amazing every note you strum or pluck on your guitar.
At new these amps come in at around $600 which is just a steal of a price if you ask me. They have such a quality of tone to them that is superb. I only hope other amp companies take notice at the sound of these amps.
If you need a good sounding amp that will not break your budget too much then this might be the amp for you. They have 2 amazing channels and each on their own is worth the price if this amp.
