Finally! I drove from Charlotte NC to Knoxville to pick this baby up, and it was well worth the drive. I fired it up at practice today and finally understood what these tube guys have been talking about. I set everything basically "flat" (Gain:4, Low:5, Mid: 6@ 400hz, High 4.5) with the master on 3. Amazing dynamic tone with plenty of punch and tube growl even on the Clean channel. Solid lows, with nice throaty mids and a round top end. ( I play through a Peavey 410TVX and 115TVX). I had no problem supporting a Marshall JCM 800 (with 4x12) and a Fender Twin combo with un-mic'd drums and our vocal PA...with the master on 3!!!! here's a crappy picture! The overdrive channel is great, too. Very raw, dirty tone that cleans up if you lay off you attack. F'N AWESOME. I have no need for any distortion/overdrive pedals whatsoever. Nothing compares to the real thing.
