Very versatile with four different channels available. Great for a gain junkie but also lets you craft a brilliant clean tone with the optional mid scoop. Although its a key feature of the amp the 'tone matrix' selector is albeit a pretty useless addition and just tends to muddy the sound up unless your dreams goal includes being in a Limp Bizkit cover band, Other than that its hard to use practically unless you have high wattage cabinets because this 350w beast will blow most speaker setups to pieces. A 1960AV is probably about the lowest wattage cab I would safely recommend to run with it. It's OD2 mode delivers more distortion than you could ever practically hope to use and the fuzz naturally sits on an annoying frequency that generally should be aided with an external EQ. The amp is drastically difficult and time consuming to calibrate on its high gain settings and once you've found a good sound you should wrap a big chain around it and never touch the settings again. But again, having 4 very different sounding channels at your disposal is a very convenient solution sometimes.
