General What is your overall opinion of this product? I am still in the break in period and one thing I should mention that I was concerned about due to reviews I read was hum and hiss. I have not had any of that with mine. The best part of this amp for me is it's versatility without a bunch of pedals. Great tone and I can dial up almost anything i want. Plenty of power but performs very well at low volume also. The only thing that kept me from giving it 5 stars is the speaker. Many have talked about this a lot in reviews and I do find that even though it sounds pretty good, it does have piercing highs, especially with a tele. So I will probably eventually do a speaker swap with a Cannabis Rex or something else that gives me better high end roll off. Well, also maybe if they had used something else other than groove tubes would have been nice even though they have done well so far. I went through 3 amps before I found the versatility I wanted and this is the one.

What is your overall opinion of this product? When it works it is everything I've ever wanted from an amp. When it works. I haven't had it quite a year yet. I do gig with it, but I baby my equipment. First, I had to change the reverb driver tube. Micro phonic. Replaced power tubes. Crapped out. Three other preamp tubes were microphonic. Replaced those. Reverb tank broke at the transducer. Replaced tank. Reverb tank RCA cable broke at tank input. Replaced. Handle broke. Replacing. It's very frustrating. When it works it's amazing. It's just a chore to work out all the bugs.

Great Alternative to the DRRI

Your general opinion of this product. A clean channel very typical of Fender and tailored from the deluxe reverb plus the 'fat' option for a great bluesy sound. Small point- I would have preferred that the 'fat' voicing for the clean channel did not increase the volume or perhaps had a volume knob, but it's not a major issue. Burn channel w/ two gain knobs allows anything from picking up where the 'fat' on the clean (vintage) chnl left off through major distortion and sounds great throughout the range. I really like the footswitchable loop. I use it with a clean boost always on sitting at the amp. I can then activate it w/ the fs on either clean, fat, or burn for solos. Now I only need the supplied footswitch out front for all my options. A '65 DRRI with a great drive channel is what it is, excepting there is no vibrato...that would have been nice. I'd give it a 4.5 out of 5.0
