General Your general opinion of this product. Seems well made, got this to run in stereo w/my Carvin Vintage 16/5, thought it would be a tiny bit bigger, but surprise! It dwarfs the Carvin...but I have no problem with that! The high gain channel is excellent, it's the reason I chose this over the single channel combo. The crunch channel can do cleans up to medium volume, or great crunchy rhythm at any volume. The presence knob is essential for dialing in the EQ precisely to get the best distorted sound. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? I use humbuckers, and with all EQ knobs straight up it's fairly bright. It is capable of serious nasally mids, and does darker tones with the highs rolled back too. Very effective tone stack. I crank the bass, and adjust the top end for whatever guitar I'm using. Usually B:8-9 M:4-5 T:5-6 P:6-7. (Knob numbers, not clock position) The settings are for semi-loud bedroom level, haven't really cranked it yet, except to check out the clean tone capability. It's making me smile so far!
