What is your overall opinion of this product?
Out of the box, this amp was good. But, the breakup didn't sound right to me even after an appropriate period of burn in. Being one that never seems to leave well enough alone, I dove in to the amp. A good set of tubes & a little higher plate current on the power tubes put this thing into tone nirvana. I have not yet decided on the speaker but it works very well with the above mods. My pedal board has gradually shrunk & my usual suspects boutique amps are collecting dust. The front end takes pedals well as does the effects loop. Noise level is fine without boost or high output pups, acceptable when pushing the gain. Handle broke fairly quickly and was replaced with a custom leather handle. I now have sweet Fender cleans (love the Fat setting), easy breakup for a little grit, & a great distortion that compresses nicely in spite of a solid state rectifier with the ability to dial in sustain as needed on the Burn channel. This thing does it all including acoustic amplification. Love it!!!
