Right out of the box I thought this is really light. I thought to myself this feels like a cheap toy.Plugged in, sounded good at first. An hour later rehearsal started and I turned up. Started getting loud squeals coming from my 810 cab. Crackling and squealing. It was awful, I thought I blew my speakers. Turned the ultra high switch and it stopped for a minute.Turned the grit knob barely and it started again. I'm not sure If I received the only bad head onthe shelf but I sent it back. No need to replace with a new one I don't trust it after that. Plugged back in my Ampeg PF500 and it sounds sooo much better than that V12.Thought I would give the new technology a try but it came up short. Cheaply made in China.I've used every Ampeg head and out of the box this one surprised me how bad it was.They also did away with the tuner out in the back. Don't know why?The best thing on it is the light goes from blue to red when you put it on mute.That's about it!
