I have had a few amps over the years. From Mesa Nomad, to Fender Twin Reverb, to Orange Tiny Terror. This amp is the 'jack of all trades' that I have been looking for. It legitimately models many legendary amps. It's relatively easy to use and when you pair it with a POD HD500, you're in for some serious sonic landscape. I use the gain stacking and compression from some select stomp boxes run into the POD. It's my 'dream rig' since I can play it in my bedroom (with decent tone) and play it on stage with my band. Plenty loud, great tone, lots of versatility.
