Man, all I can say is this amp f***in' tears it up!! This thing sounds so good from barely nudged on the volume to full blown, kill your hearing levels. I had an old Peavey 5150 and I'm sorry, this amp kills it. I don't know why some guys complain about channel 2 being unusable. Roll the gain off and you've got great crunch . Roll it on and early metal....channel 3 is a beast ! I'll go in depth with a review after this weekend. Gonna set it up for recording. Gonna have to eventually get the matching 2x12 though....damn GAS!!
