I don't want to pour salt on your wound but you have to see this  Grin



.... no nothing wrong with my camera or your vision, what you see is two Overtones.
 Chair Dance

One is mine and the other belongs to my friend. Very nice to have two just in case we decide to mod these amps. It's nice to have one as a reference.

 Grin
Well I only had an hour with mine. Today I have a major date with these amps and I have a friend coming too.

...anyway what I can say for sure is, these amps worth every penny for the clean channel only. Very Fendrish sounding, just the way I like it. I was surprised to see how I was able to set the tone I like very quickly. I think thats a sign of a good amp. I'm not really an OD guy, so I had no issues with setting a slight OD tone I liked. I did notice slight loss of bass and increase of the hi-end while using OD, but that didn't spoil anything. It wasn't harsh and I was playing my strat with gold lace sensors. I was using my Greenback speaker and I was not playing very loudly (home volume). If this turns out to be an issue for me, I already know what to tweak... I did my homework Smiley
...but first I must build my cab and see how it works with my new G12-65 speaker.

I also noticed that this amp sounds better if the master it opened (let say around 7-8) and clean ch. volume is down. I think it sounds fuller this way. I also like to set the ratio OD control very low, so when you hit the OD button you notice just a slight boost in volume. It feels like an extension of the clean ch. with a slight grit and more sustain.

If you want to know how I feel about this amp... let just say  Chair Dance Chair Dance

Agreed about the clean channel, it's wonderful and the boost makes it that much more.

I'm going in to adjust the od trimmer. Mine is HOT! I can get all the od I want with it set at 1 1/2. I'd prefer it if the tone I'm getting on 1/12 was the same as at 4 that way I could tweek down a hair. I'll report back on what I learn.

I'll say it again, Nik, this is a great amp!

Just for the record... I already have a speaker for this amp. I ordered it even before I heard the amp. It seems to be the right choice for most players.
Celestion G12-65

...although I'm playing through my old Greenback now and man, I think I like that speaker for this amp as well... but 25W is not big enough I guess.

Regarding Fendrish clean... yesterday I wasn't sure but now I am...
I can finally say my lust for Twin has ended right here. Yesterday, my friend brought his SF Twin for the test and man, this amp can do that sound very well, way better than my DRRI ever could...  Shocked 
I'm all thrilled about that  Grin

Yes, let us know what will happen with that trimmer.

Plus one on the cleans. This amp clean stands up to any amp I've ever heard.

My od trimmer was at 11:00, I had to keep the level set at 1 1/2. I backed the trimmer down to 9 and then raised it back up to 10:00. Just that small amount made a difference, now I can get the same amount of drive with the level set on 3. It's not as touchy.

Oh yeah, this amp responds so well to the volume knob on your guitar. Also it seems to likes the neck Humbucker on my Les Paul better than most amps too.

I'd buy this amp again in a heart beat.
