Now that's what I call vintage smile.gif Have not tried one. I imagine it is going for a very vintage vibe from the look of it.

It's great sounding for jazz and blues. Versatile is not a word I would use to describe that amp though.
You def need an OD pedal to get any heavy grind or singing lead tone out of it.
For a little guy it's pretty loud. Loud enough for small gig or rehearsal.

Thanks klasaine.
Is it too powerful for a home only use ?
Does it like pedals like chorus or phaser ?

Depends on how loudly you can play at home - ? Any amp can be played quietly. If you live in an apartment, your neighbors are sensitive but you want the best tone from that particular amp, then no. That amp needs to be turned up a bit to get it's particular 'good' tone.

It sounds great with chorus and phaser!

Another last question,

This amp as the bad reputation being noisy with a permanent hum. How noisy it is in reality ? I've found one for 235€ (255 USD)

The first year run of them were all pretty noisy (hum, hiss).

They got a lot better after 100's of complaints.
The one I've played through many times is no more noisy than any vintage style tube amp that's relatively well maintained. Translation - sounds like a normal tube amp to me. When you have the volume up and you're using single coil pkups you'll get noise.

Some great info/advice from Mr K! Always trust your ears and make sure you don't get one of the noisey ones!
