For the price and sound this product is a steal. People will start to talk about this more after NAMM 2010 as more people start to hear about the product.

If you are a basic Marshall user, you will love this amp. The controls are exactly the same - Preamp, Bass, Middle, Treble, Master and Presence. In fact it just has one input so you do not have to deal with the high and low as on a Marshall. This mini beast is loaded with 3 - 12AX7's and 2 - EL84's in the output stage.
Just great for small practices and small clubs.
This little guy just kicks butt. You can go from a nice glass sound to sheer balls that is typical of Saldano style distortion. I use the amp for multiple styles ranging from blues, jazz, country and rock.
Six knobs. You can't get any simpler than that! Just plug, turn on and play!
This product was introduced in October of 2009 so only time will tell on how the product handles the road. I feel the drawback will be the PC boards. If this amp was point to point wiring I believe it would be more durable, however that would kick the price tag up 300%.
