I use the amp head together with a setup of a Squier Stratocaster HSS and a Behringer UMC-22 USB audio interface.
Pros:
First and foremost, the sound of it is quite nice, for the lead channel it is quite easy to get a lighter distorted sound (good enough for songs like Hotel California or Sweet Child O' Mine); for the clean channel, I think it works just fine as a platform for pedals, and by turning up the gain, a nice overdrive crunchy sound is available.
The handling is good, so it is easy to use, nothing much fancy.
The features are quite excellent, even though the tubes safety checker system (or somewhat) is not that useful to check every time you play, but after a while, it is a nice indicator for tubes changing; the internal DI Box and the Power Attenuator are useful in the perspective of house recording.
German quality is good, and it looks pretty fancy at night due to the blue light, real swagger! The bag is good for travelling.
Cons:
To get a really dirty and heavily distorted sound, the internal boost would not be enough. Also, a Chorus and a Reverb effect would be handy.

Great value for money

painkiller84, 17.10.2018
I'm very happy with the purchase. The sound of it is exactly what I was after.Also it's very loud,I never need to turn it at 18watts when rehearsal (with a pretty loud drummer,another guitarist and a bassist).Overdrive is more than enough to play up to metallica songs for example.The crunch is its big advantage,it is just perfect..The reviews on shops and forums where right,it's a GREAT amp head.
Cons (hard to find):
1. Clean channel is not so loud as 2nd channel,u need to turn to 18watts if playing crystal-clean with a loud drummer.
2. Lead channel has a nice volume boost and compressed gain for soloing but I'd prefer no volume boost at all so u could use it just as a third gain channel(and then u could volume boost with a separate pedal,they're cheap),although that would be my personal preference.
