Epsecially the channel between clean and distorted is something you won't find on many other amps. Also the soaking options are super and red box... when you record as I do directly into the computer, it's the way to go. The reverb has a high pithces tone in it...which would be the only flaw of this great amp.
Don't let its size fool ya this thing rocks. It can be played in a bedroom on the headphone setting or on the 1 watt to 5 watt settings. If you want the tubes to do some work set to 5 watt setting and turn the gain up on the clean setting and get your SRV on. 18 and 36 watts are a kick in the N@TZ firing on all cylinders at this point. Crunch and Distortion channels have a wide variety of tones just sit there and dial in your sound. From crunchy to metal you decide....!
