Given te features this amp has, it definitely has to be. I'd be (pleasantly) surprised if it's MiM. Whats all the doom and gloom about in the videos anyway? Are they still basing this on only having two preamp tubes? But seriously, it's a $500 cabinet. It's just meant for beginners. FWIW the Bugera amps are meant for beginners and even with their reputation, they sound killer. Amazing sounding amps especially for the price, if you find one that's still kicking. FWIW Wolfie's a trolling shitposter on twitter (in the best way possible) so I'd like to see his reaction.
