Absolutely fantastic !

TeoD, 06.07.2017
I bought this as I got tired of using my Line 6 Spider IV 15 because of the limited tonal possibilites and the somewhat inferior quality of the tone put out.
Out of the box, I could get any tone I want. From an overdriven SRV sound to high gain metal to crystal clear cleans, this amp does it all ! The effects it comes with are really useful (especially that amazing reverb) and configuring them on the panel is very easy. The true wow-factor comes out when you connect it to a computer and start changing absolutely everything. You can tweak it to no limit. You can change the effects you have on each channel (including the panel) and you can also change their parameters (just like on a high end pedal). You can tweak the start time of the reverb of your choice, you can configure a compressor... it's like having an amp and 58 pedals, all in one ! Not to mention that I've never had to accomplish an easier task than that of updating the firmware on this amp. It literally takes under a minute and anyone could do this. Haven't had this much fun with an amp in a long time. Even though it's solid state, it can produce a lot of tasty tones (and very varied, at that!)
I would recommend this amp to anyone who's looking for a decent priced amp with TONS of features and a great sound for any musical genre. Versatility like this is a huge bonus in any circumstance !

THE BEST FOR THE PRICE. And actually overall greatness

Ces Mc, 09.10.2017
It is very affordable,
It is very light weight
It is nice looking
The sound is neat and super versatile. It takes all the subtleties of your picking very close to a valve amp. For example, the volume dialled down, cleans the gain.
I play with a Tele with Texas Special Custom Shop fender pickups.
You can dial in whatever tone you need. From spanky country to hardcore metal. Recently the Version 2.0 for the software was released. Noy you can store 8 memories, it has several way to send the signal to line in with three distinct cabinet simulators.
It is not a modeller, and it is. :-) It includes up to 58 effects from Boss pedals, and they are absolutely accurate in the specs.
It is easy to use. If you don't like to mess up with softwares and bla bla bla, you can just plug in your guitar and enjoy the greatness! Awesome, and it came for less than 400 USD? wow.
