With a coil tap equipped guitar (PRS Custom 22 / SAS), this amp can cover every genre of music to come out in the past 60 years. I keep mine plugged straight into the plexi side with the orange glow engaged and the volume dimed and use the volume knob on my guitar and taps in lieu of foot pedals. Other knobs change depending on my master volume settings and room. You can't dial in a bad tone with this amp. The most inspiring amp I've ever played, it becomes an instrument of itself. Nails hendrix tone, clapton (all eras), zeppelin, van halen, 80s metal, 90s rock, modern rock, modern country southern rock, hard rock, and beyond. The hybrid master system works amazingly. My tone can sound like I'm moving enough air to blow my hair back but I can keep the volume low enough to practice with the fiance sleeping in the next room. The guys at 3rd power really care, and the quality of their amps speak for themselves.
