Wowie Zowie! Big Fat Rich Refined tone with plenty of punch and bite depending on settings. This is the first amp I've tried in decades that does not have me missing my SVT. I was too frazzled last night to dare handling tubes after having to call Fed Ex three times to chase down the driver on the other side of town. The box was only mildly scrunched with no damage to the amp. The 4 JJ KT88's were shipped separately. Big bottle goodness! I only had a few minutes to try the amp out with my '64 Jazz Bass. So far, so good! Very minor fussing points. I would much prefer a matte finish control panel. Every last finger print and swirl mark shows even with care to use only a clean microfiber cloth. As mentioned in the BGM review, the two 1/4" output jacks need to be labeled for primary and extension cabs. I would prefer an impedance selector knob to the "find a tool" switch and 2,4,8 Ohm taps if that were possible. A guitar pick works just fine, but I experiment with different cabs, so a knob would just make switching easier. Cool point! The owner's manual says you can Y jumper the channels. COOL! Gotta pick up a jumper and try it. Overall, she's a keeper! It really sucks having to go to work on new amp day.
