I would definatly replace this amp when it goes.

It comes with a 3 button foot switch, Clean, Distortion, & reverb. It does not have an effects loop but it does have a stereo input for a CD player, which enables you to play along with the song. it is solid state technology.
I use a B.C. Rich Warlock and a Washburn with the Amp I also use a GT-3 guitar effects unit. when i play the amp indoors I rarely turn it past the number 2 it's that loud
No fiddling required set your clean and your distortion and our all set, stomp on the box to change between channels
It is very well constructed and easy to move around even though it packs a punch in apperance and sound it is extremly light ( as apposed to other full stack systems)
