i waited 2 months for this amp and had high hopes for it. everything i read, everyone i talked to, all said get it. heres my take on it:the sound is muddy, with zero tone and i tried every setting. i ran 3 guitars through it, and had a fender and marshall tube amp also used for testing. all 3 guitars sound great through the fender and marshall. all 3 were horrible through the supro. the only way i got any tone in the supro was to crank the gain up full, the bass down to 1 and master up full. if i brought the bass up even a little it killed the tone.the reverb was lacking also having to crank it up to 10 and then the feedback was terrible.the only bright spot in this is Zzounds service. they are excellent. I ordered a Laney lionheart 5 watt tonite.IMO supro is way overrated maybe things have changed because i do have friends with older models they love.thanks again to zZounds for taking care of me in this and other returns.
