I am very happy with it but have only had it a few weeks with no gigs for the foreseeable future so I will reserve my final opinion until i have put it through its paces in a live situation. While being a clean DI it also sports contour switches for vintage and modern tones which to my ears are very useable and musical. I must say I am very impressed by the PJB C8 in both sound and build quality. The power available coupled with the tight articulation of the 5' speakers will work in almost every musical situation I am likely to find. Does anyone have any suggestions for padded covers for their C8/PJB gear?
