Anyone tried the LEGACY? How does it compare to the V3?

I've played through the older 2-ch Legacy 100 watt 1/2 stacks a few times.
They were (probably) beat up a bit as they were backline gear. Sounded pretty straight-forward R&R to me. Kind of modern Marshallesque. EL34 pwr tubes. Totally worked for what I was doing. I used a comp and an OD in front of the amp and played either a Tele or an LP. I preferred the cleaner ch. The 'lead' side was too saturated for me but that's just me. The V3 looks a little more versatile.

Have yet to see any of them "in the wild", but hope to smile.gif
