Your general opinion of this product.
I've been through a ton of amps lately. Everything from tube combos, heads and solid state. I'm not a fan of modeling so I stayed away from those types (although there are some great tones to be had).
I saw that AMS had the RG80 reissue in stock. The price was awesome and for 80 watts and a classic like this model, I figured I would give it a try.
I can honestly say that this amp is a faithful reproduction of the original, only better. I know that the original had issues with the gain channel bleeding into the clean channel and that's not the case with this one.
The cleans are fantastic. With the bright switch off, it has a warm, full tone across the spectrum. Almost like a Mesa Mark II (but of course, not the same). With the bright switch, this is where I was thrilled. Very much like a Twin. The drive channel is amazing, Huge tones with perfect definition across all strings. I found my amp. Thanks AMS! Now I want a second one to run in stereo with my Nova System!!!
