Overall it's a great amp to throw in the car real quick and take to a gig or session without having to bring all your typical special effects. The onboard effects are competent and do not introduce and signal noise. It is light and loud, the two power modes allows for small and big venues. Get one!

The signal is routed to two channels, Clean and Dirty. The clean channel has a gain feature which allows it to be contured for a Crunch sound. There is also a Boost feature for both channels. And 20/40 watt modes selectable. The amp has digital delay and reverb effects built into the units head.
The 6L6s are very warm and open. Very nice and clean, but the clean channel doesn't do well for accepting an external effects unit. I tried running a GSP 1101 into and and got signal noise and feedback to a slight to moderate degree.
