See my review on the PPC112 for more details on my set up. But this combo is great. I used it as a head with the PPC112 for quite a while. It's also a great sounding practice amp. It's loud enough for venues and is super reliable. The class A tubes give it a really hot sound, and it can be used for a variety of different genres. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good combo amp, practice or live.
