I picked up one of these dirt cheap in a local pawn shop after I missed out on a much more expensive used Roadster at another local store. While it does not Djent, it produces some stellar classic tones with two gain modes on each of it's two channels, with a boost function on one of them. I thought it sounded great as-is, but after reading some opinions from other owners I decided to ditch the somewhat worn 6L6 tubes in favour of a quad of EL34s direct from Mesa (remember to change the bias!), and it absolutely screams now. Even on reduced output mode (40w with EL34, 60w with 6L6) it will vibrate your soul and wake the dead at half volume. The only real problem with this amp is it's HEAVY. It's not referred to the Backbreaker for nothing!
