    Just got this amp today for a really good deal. It's got a whole bunch of sounds in it for a very simple two channel amp. I know "great cleans" is a bit of cliche for high gain amps these days, but this is a very good clean channel. Channel two can get very mean if you want it to or you can back off and get some lovely lower gain tones.

    Not really little, is it? Should just be the Short Fokker.

    Picture doesn't show it, but it's almost an inch wider than the JVM and maybe an inch and a half longer. It's massive.

    Clean channel is so good, just leaving everything at 12 o clock. Might try a boost in front of channel 2, but 33s are going for more than the amp cost.

    Hell yeah! Congrats! Almost pulled the trigger on the Fokker a hand full of times. Still haunts me that I didn't :(

    I'm failing to see the 'Lil' part? Is that like, Deutsch for 'Huge'? Or is it describing your bank balance after buying a Diezel? :lol:

    It's probably the widest amp I've ever seen. I guess it's shorter than Hagen, Herbert and VH4, so maybe that's it. Diezels are also super deep, no pun intended.

    Loving the amp still. Tight as can be and everything you'd want out of a 2 channel amp. I've gotten just about every tone I've wanted out of it except for that super scooped Boogie/Metallica thing. I guess that's why Herbert has the Mid Cut switch.

    Trying to get some more Diezels now. Also, the build quality isn't overstated at all. Solid as can be.

    If you want a worse EQ for the same price, sure.
