I would buy two of these amps if something happened to this one.
I think it could have been better had they gotten rid of some of the amp models and devoted more proccessing power to the rest. The Flanger and rotary speaker sim aren't very good IMO. The Flanger sounds too digital and you can slow the rotarty speaker sim down enough for my taste. But for the low cost I think that it's a great amp.

This is the amp that has everything but the kitchen sink.
On the panel there is a master volume conrtol,gain,bass,mid,treble,channel volume, reverb, fx tweak. By hold the tap tempo button down you they become distortion on/off, delay feedback,delay leval,presance,noise gate,and effect speed.
It has an effects loop, midi in and out, and headphone jack.
I reccomend getting the floorboard otherwise in a live situation your options will be limited.
I use this with a hamer guitar w/ floyd rose and a Dimarzio Evolution p/u in the bridge.
I play fusion,classical,metal,and hard rock. I think though that this amp suits any style.
This thing is amazing every amp model is differant so at the least it's like having 32 differant amps. It's the best sounding that I've played through so far IMHO.
You can get gobs of distortion although clean sounds take some work to get sometimes.
But the bottem line is it sounds good.
It doesn't take a lot of work to get a good tone out of this and if you can't then thats bad. You can program it in a million differant ways but to get the most out of the amp you need to have a midi cable because there are so many parameters that can only be adjusted with a computer.
I haven't had it long but so far it's worked well.I noticed the tolex was pretty thin so getting a cover would be a must.
