    :hbang: So i have never played through such an amazing sounding head in my life, the distortion on this thing is so damn meaty and punchy I absolutely love it, beats the axe fx (in my opinion) that i had before it.

    Probably the only thing i can say bad about it is that my low A is a TAD muddy at times it seems, but then again I have a 62 gauge on there, and i dont have any kind of boost going into it, which will change soon :)
    This thing has been able to get any kind of sound ive wanted out of it and its just so thick sounding :scream:

    Ask any questions you guys may have, I'd like to get around to posting a video, but dont expect a whole lot if i get around to it, I have no professional audio/video recording equipment whatsoever :lol: just an iPhone, which actually takes decent videos sometimes, but you get the point

    Anyways....

    Best amp i have ever played and i honestly have never been so satisfied with a tone in my life, and the fact that it has 3 separate channels makes it plenty versatile enough for me, the cleans are pretty good on it too.

    Got it off music123 used and can say they were really great to deal with, i called them twice for just general kinda questions about the condition of the amp and everyone i spoke to was very polite and when i mentioned being worried about it coming to me in shitty condition, they completely reassured that if anything happened or if it wasnt what i ordered, they would take care of me :)

    Yeah i was originally go with the 50 watter as well but I couldnt find it in stock anywhere,i called like 5 different retailers and they said they were back ordered till september but oh well, now ive got the extra watts i guess :lol:

    this thing sounds great at low volumes too which is a huge plus as im not playing in a band at the moment

    Good to hear that it is good at low volumes. I got rid of my axe fx as well to fund this rig. Have you tried anything in the loop as far as reverb or chorus? I ordered a G Major II as well to run through the loop. Have you run an EMG-equipped guitar through it yet?

    No i actually dont have any pedals whatsoever to even try through the loop unfortunately, and I have only played it with my RG7621 with Dactivators and can say it is massive sounding as ever, very punchy, especially when you can get the tubes to open up :) you will not regret getting this amp :yesway:

    I've got the 50 watter with a black 2x12 and ivory 2x12 along with a black and ivory 100 watt and matching 4x12's. These amps are killer. You can get just about any type of tone you want out of them. Here's some vid of my first show with my Ozzy tribute. I was using both 100 watters with the matching 2x12's in stereo. One on each side of the stage. Sound is clipping but you get the idea.
