Sound (clean and distorted channels, tone, etc.):
Tube amp!!! Rather shocking - in a good meaning. From my memory, in point of view of dynamics the past time's legendary Rock sound come up to the surface. Plenty of mid, enough wild and strong on low volume too. Quick - the sound is coming with no delay. The clean channel is crystal clear, mixing with 'Color' produces such frequency... I fell in love. No distortion on extra volume, the quality remains the same. It produces not only one sound, it's versatile head.
Its drive well saving and elevating the guitar sound and it has so much power...
...well, it's a real time-travel between past and future. It has equipped with a dominant distorter, you can fly with this. Sometimes losing the weight of the sound at solos, but it is easily re-adjustable. Creative, characteristic, gives much, an inspirative amp. If somebody found a this kind of amp, well, it is the same feeling as he found a very nice place in the world and he don't want to go away from there.

Features (Effect-loop, foot switch, etc.):
The footswitch is a little bit robust.
