Interesting amp. OD tone is a tad fizzy. Worst thing about it is the voice over.

Nasty fake British accent, sets my teeth on edge.

I think that may be Fender trying to be hip and edgy.



Yep.

First impressions...
1. Clean sounds decent, the amount of headroom is my only query.
2. Didn't really like the 'Hot' channels fizzy distortion sound... hey ho! At least its not as bad as the voice over

That was one of the worst video adverts I've ever seen.

There's a better review of it from Andertons. A bit long winded but thoroughly covers what it can do.



From my perspective, the most interesting thing is that it matches the wallpaper in our living room. Surely the ultimate argument for persuading my wife why we need one?

I'm really psyched about the new Vibrolux with the Bassman channel. That ones got me squirming in anticipation.
