If you want an unbelievable amp that does it all, this is it. Channel 1 provides exceptionally clean to a clean/dirty range, just dial up the gain. Channel 2 provides the total "rock" sound great for rhythm. Channel 3 is insane, throw away any and all overdrive pedals you now own. I play this with the Fransken-strat evh guitar (one pickup one knob) and it works like nothing else. The volume, past half way, increases the gain more than the volume and the total package is simply effective. Can't say enough about this setup and I've had Marshall's, HiWatt's, Peavy's and Mesa's. Highly recommended.

This amp is nuts. Makes your ears bleed at half volume and never needs a distortion pedal. The clean is that wonderful fender clean, and the dirt will rattle stuff if the walls. I love mine, plus 5 year warranty (that's transferable, for the poor saps who HAVE to sell this beast. I play with a Marshall cab and the head makes it look puny. You play rock? Get one!

I have had this amp along with two 4 X 12 5150 III cabs for a couple of years. Blows me away everytime I turn it on. All my guitars sound great through it...definitely a professional system...clean, dirty, or best of all...channel 3!
