Gives any valve amp a run for its money

25.03.2017
As someone who has owned a number of valve amps, this amp amazing, the cleans are as clear and warm as a fender twin and the od2 channel has as much growl as any marshall head I've used.

For anyone who uses a loop but hates how changing from clean to overdrive distorts everything recorded, that doesn't happen with this, whatever channel you record in, the overdubs stay the same even as you change from clean to overdrive and continue to record.
The included foot switch works as a channel switcher as well as the control for the loop function.

The effects are what's to be expected, reverb, delay and modulation, and three variations of each.
The isf dial is really as good as it claims ( which I was skeptical about at first) but it really does get that classic rock sound right up to the modern full bottoam end metal sound.
All that and it's quite small and very light!
5 stars all round.

Read this before buy

Niccolo Bagarini, 18.03.2018
This is what legitimately biased Youtubers will not tell you.(but you can still read their facial expressions...)
This thing has very harsh treble. Reason might be the used tweeter(or lack of it). You cannot get decent clean sound out of it.
But one thing is for sure:bass is boomy. Take signal out from effect send to your high end headphones and you find out that bass is still boomish.So reason is not the drivers or output stage.Reason is tone stack. Bass control needs to be at 7-8 all times.
If you think you could use USB for reamping consider latency.
It is like hundreds of milliseconds. But it works !
If you want long sustained distortion you just might get away with it for a while. You might get soon bored though because lack of definition.
Blackstar is supposed to do better job considering the reputation.
