Hello GMC!

Picked up a beautiful Boogie 5 50 combo 2x12 today at Guitar center. First impressions are.....WOW! Great amp, awesome tone, if your thinking about getting it...get it! Expect a review soon biggrin.gif


EDIT: Smikey2006 already contributed a great review for the 5:50 so ill just add a couple short things

2x12 C90 Speakers
2x6L6 & 5x12AX7 tubes
Duo-class A B switching( 5 watts or 50 watts)
FX Loop
2 independent channels, 4 tones ( Clean, Crunch, Blues, Burn)
A great Contour Feature
One hell of an amplifier !

Will post my experiences soon...
