1. It has the most amazing overdrive grind at real stage volumes. (I used to gig a 100 watt plexi, overkill to say the least). 2. The master volume works better than the attenuators I have used with other amps. 3. Master all the way up feels like a NMV amp. 4. It can chime like a vox and grind like a marshall, not identical, but the influence is there. 5. It's green. 6. It's bullet proof. I have gigged, rehearsed, and tracked this amp exclusively for over four years now and I have yet to change the tubes (I know, I know, I'll get some soon). It has sounded wonderful in each situation. 7. The last gig I played someone asked me if I am a Charlie Sexton fan because he heard Sexton in my tone and playing...I'll take that. 8. The low notes hold together and sound big for a 20 watt amp. 9. It loves my Supatrem and I can cop many of the Americana tones I love. 10. It loves P90 Les Pauls, which are my favorite guitars. CR owners, please feel free to add to this list.
