biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif I'm really happy that I got my first ever tube amp. Here it is. I'm very glad I made the purchase. I know what this amp capable of.

Let me introduce this amp a little bit. This amp basically has 4 channel. Two clean chanenls which is channel 1 and 2 and two diry channel which is channel 3 and 4. Each channel has 3 modes associated with it.

channel 1: has Clean, Fat and Tweed mode.
channel 2: has Clean, Fat, and Brit mode.
channel 3: has raw, vintage and modern mode.
channel 4: has raw, vintage and modern mode.

Also, each channel has it own master volume, Bass, mid, Treble, gain and presence control as well as a Reverb control which is located at the rear panel.

Based on this 4 channel and 3 modes associated with, you can generate 12 different variation sounds without tweaking the equalizer and reverb. This amp is very flexible is such a way that there is a solo boast as well as tuner out on the footswitch which allow u tune the guitar silently during performing. Also, there is a switch at the rear panel allows you to switch from 100W to 50W for each channel depending on the volume and power level you need. This beast is really versatile.
