and darnit, the is a problem. The amp has a really bad rattle, it sounds like the speaker basket. I ordered it from American Musical Supply so I called them, told them the problem, and they are shipping me another one and paying shipping charges both ways(really happy with their service!) Except for the annoying rattle, the amp sounds pretty good! I bought it to play acoustic gigs , but I believe it would be powerful enough to play in smaller electric gigs. When the new one gets in (and if it does not have any problems,) I will let you know how it does at the gig.
