I bought this amp in a hurry. My previous amp had packed up and I had a gig to do. First impression was good and is still good. It does cleans easily and the dirt channel overdrives well with a boost for super distortion. This is an ideal gigging amp for pubs small clubs etc. it is so light! The sink switch is really handy for home practice. It goes down to 5w or 1w and doesn't lose any of the frequency range or overdrive. I highly recommend this amp.
