Great step up from the Mk1 version, still some flaws in the design

kxszander, 24.03.2018
My application for this unit, is to use it as at a pedal-based clean platform amp to use in conjunction with an FRFR-speaker and with some compact pedals I particularly like.
The quality of the sounds has greatly improved since the Mk1-version, although I tend to stick to the the vintage clean preset. This presents me with a decent and tweakable Fender-esque clean canvas.
The pedal is very suitable to use in combination with other pedals.
The built in XLR-out is not at all good-sounding, so an additional amp sim-DI or IR-loader is advisable before going straight into the board.
As a stand alone unit, it is very practical (e.g. hotel room playing with headphones) but the sounds of the higher gain stuff are not very convincing.
Sonically, neither the Mk1 or the Mk2 can really compete with the Tech-21 GT-2 SansAmp the design was clearly based on.
Overall, a practical little unit with some pretty nice features; if it were really suitable as a one-stop solution for amp modeling, amp sim AND DI, this would potentially be a five star product on pedalboards everywhere. Maybe the Mk3-version? I would happily pay quite a bit extra if the DI were more usable (and included amp sim functionality, e.g. Palmer pdi 03 jb).

Excellent to replace an amp!

Santos77, 18.02.2018
Currently using in a small church.
This guitar preamp is great for playing in places where you just cant use your amp, in my case is just very complicate to use my amp with a very low stage volume, so this was a great tool for me.
Also its very useful for practice at home, you can plug your computer or phone in with a mini jack and just plug your headphones directly in it.
You can cut some bad frequencies with it (great tool in live playing).
For me the sound is very accurate and similar to some amps, however its not the same, but some times you just get tired in carrying around your 30kg amp to every small gig...
This can save your back some pain and can save your gig.
The xlr out is just great!
