General Your general opinion of this product. Well made,have had it a little over 2 yrs.Great sound.Crunch channel is semi clean to early AC/DC type distortion.Overdrive channel is great for the guitarist that like to solo.You do have to replace the tubes with some quality tubes like JJ's etc,it rounds it out a little and gets rid of that grainy bite the stock tubes have. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Seems well made,ive played it quite alot,low volume and also high volume.had to tighten a couple things like the effects loop nuts,but nothing major.One band i play in the other guitar player has a DSL 50 watt and this holds its own with no problem. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Controls are simple straight forward. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Once i replace the tubes with quality ones,it sounds great,can get good cleans,not like a F clean but with a chorus has great clean tone,also on that channel you get that crunchy JTM-MK2 type of sound.The overdrive channel is great,nice full sound with lots of gain for solo's Action How was the action out of the box? Na Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I actually like the way they look,ive seen other opinions on that on the internet. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Its been very reliable without any problems,The one thin some people wont like and it happens to be the same problem with the Soldano amps,the effects loops likes some pedals and not others,and can be hard to find stuff that works good for you,I dont use the effects loop,just distortions/chorus type effects before the amp and it works great for me
a lot of tone for short money

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? It seems well made, I like the larger knobs on it and all the controls are smooth. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Haven't owned it long enough General Your general opinion of this product. I do a lot of recording and have a miked up 4x12 locked away, I use all my tube amps (even a two watt amp) with a Ted Weber Attenuator and this amp loves the rest of my rig. With a self built and modded TS clone the tone is killer on the normal channel but when I kick in the OD channel it's controlled bedlum which is exactly what I like. I also have used this with THD Yellow Jackets (pentode) with fantastic results. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I would say N/A but once it's not under warranty I'm replacing the blue with the jet city logo with balck metal grate. However part of that is because of swapping out the Yellow Jackets, I did the same thing to My old Mesa/Boogie SOB. With the grate I can hold it on with wingnuts and have quick access to the tubes from the front. Action How was the action out of the box? N/A
