I got it because I didn't really have a choice, nobody carries Ampeg combos on the island, and its $100 minimum to ship a combo out to hawaii. My first impression was disappointment. It's very crisp, clear highs...it loves to be slapped But after I messed with the tone controls for a few hours I got a tone I liked. I killed the horn/tweeter/whatever Bass 7-8 Mids 6-7 Treble - 3-4 Aural - 6? Gain - 7 Man it's sooo beefy, I'm lovin it. Right now my only complaint is that if you turn the bass to 9 or 10, it turns to complete mud. Also, its highs seem very sensitive, its geared more towards crisp highs than growly lows. Overall though, I'd give the amp a 9. Anyone else use one?
