This is a great amp but it is fussy in a couple of ways. The volume knob is touchy and cranks quite quickly after 1 to 1 and a half. I bought a volume knob box for the effects loop to help this. I also needed to get it repaired immediately after buying it used for a couple of resistors that needed replacement. Great clean sound, but the distorted sound I think will only be usable on lower settings.
After playing around with this for a while I find that I can get a number of usable tones with and without the volume box added in the effects loop. It is certainly a compromise in tone, but until I play stadiums with my own roadies, I think this amp is a pretty good compromise given my circumstances.
