"BEST VALUE"
Sound
I just bought this thing at best-buy for 200 clams, they mjs marked them as standard pod's and I got the last one. As soon as I got home I ran this thing through a 10 watt monitor and it blew me away. The Soldano model is spot on, so is the Bassman. Replicating these two amps pretty much covers the bases for me. There is a shortcut to learning all the button tricks by the way-I DOWNLOADED THE EDITOR SOFTWARE (all caps means muy importante!). The software shows exactly whats going on with amp and effect settings simultaniously, and the whole shebang can be saved as a preset. AWSOME.
