First, foremost, I will say that this little amp head sounds great! If your wondering about that tube sound, like I was, the answer is yes. Yes it most certainly has tube sound. The highs do not sound compressed, like solid state amps do. It sounds tube. Now that I've covered that, let's move on to the unbiased part of the review. The treble and bass knobs work great, definitely have a full range of adjustability. Folks say this little thing is loud. Well, it is. But not without a trade off. Once you put the volume level past halfway, it gets noisy. Irritatingly noisy. I use this, at half volume with a preamp/booster. It works great with pedals. It's a minus for the noisy operation past half volume. It is 50 watts, maximum at 4 ohms. That is solid state watts. I can tell you , that this DOES NOT, have the "ooomph" of a tube head. I have low watt tube heads, 1/5/7 watt, and this does NOT compare to those in the power/oomph department. Sound quality, yes it does. Works great with pedals, has a great small platform, has great tube sound... DOES NOT have that depth/punch/ooomph of a real tube head. Does it still get high marks, and a good recommendation? Absolutely. Buy it, try it, you'll see what I mean. It's an emergency back up at best, and a bedroom, small coffee shop type gig amp. It's got good features, with the attenuator, eq switch, eco mode(meh), and the cool power window on the front. Really a neat amp.
