It rocks, that's all there is to it.
127 presets, a ram slot for adding, creating, storing more. It's all midi controlled so it can be easily manipulated, and it.......just rocks man.
Wonderful sound, even on 10.
Definately takes some getting used to, but the manual has tutorials you can take to get familiar with it. It's very complicated all-in-all though, but aren't the good ones all supposed to be?
Not really sure, only had it for a week :)
But it's made from the same vinyl all the others are......so I'm sure it holds it's own.
As my first decent amp, this model was almost everything I wanted. I couple other effects such as a tube screamer to creat distortion without unwanted hums and other noise created when the pre and post gain are up high on the lead channel. Another handy control is the dB damp button which is great for high-gain pick ups where 6dB reduction removes unwanted feedback.

Standard tone controls, switch between clean and lead channel and effects on demand
This is fundamentally an electric guitar amplifier, I have had some success using an accoustic electric but find it difficult to get rid of the sharp tones that come through. Using the Seymore Duncan woodblock passive pick-up tends to overcome this problem. Attempting to get any decent distortion is not easy. I found this amp great for effects but any distortion creats too much noise
Really easy to edit and creat effects. Stackable without noticable dB loss
Construction is OK - the initial input jack was plastic with a fine thread, it continually worked loose. The shop through which I purchased the amp were more than willing to deal with this problem under warranty and replaced the input jack with a more durable heavy duty socket. No further problems since then. I use this amp for approx 5hours live playing per week and find few problems.
