Good for the most part
22.01.2016
Used a 1996 USA Lonestar Strat & a series of guitar effect pedals going into the front of the amps custom channel with bass on 10, treble on 6.5 & volume between 4-6 in a smokey hotel bar residency 5 nights per week in Dubai - United Arab Emirates.

Played in 4 piece band (bass, drums, guitar, female vocals & backing tracks) Rock, Jazz, Reggae, Blues, Dance, Top 40 Chart hits music for 6 months. Set up the amp and kept it in the same place. Everything worked perfectly even when the hotels fire alarm shut all the power off on the stage randomly every 2 months without warning - The amp would always start back up again.

More than a year later with the same tubes and still sounds great. Only once has the amps fuse blown because it was plugged into a intermittent power supply.

This is a good 'workhorse' general purpose amplifier.

Pros:
1. Super clean tone
2. High quality reverb & vibrato can be used on both channels
3. Relatively lightweight & compact
4. Breaks up nicely at around 50% volume
5. Loud enough to keep up with a mature drummer(who doesn't bash the kit)
6. Looks beautiful

Cons:
1. No effect loop for external delays, reverbs etc
2. When micing the amp to a live mixing desk or for recording, it has a small hissing sound even with all volume & tone controls turned down and without any cables plugged in.

Great sounds but noisy when idle
Richard aus Q., 04.07.2015
Not quite sure where it's all coming from but there are a lot of noises (crackling sounds when turned on, pop sounds when the standby is turned off) and hiss when nothing is plugged in that are a common complaint with this amp on reviews. Now, if so many users are saying it's there, does that mean it's normal for this amp?

Is that a quality control issue? I put three stars for verarbeitung but with a question mark. just not sure what to think of the noises. As far as cosmetics, no complaint, it's stunning.

That being said.... wow, once you actually start playing and the littles noises are thus burried, it sounds fabulous! The concept is great, the channels are really different in character and if they could build it flawlessly, it's a winner. I do recommend it.

Lots of people seem to prefer this one to the DRRI.
