Hey, I know this amp has been around for awhile, but I feel like spouting off and am curious how others feel about the Shiva. I've had my Shiva EL-34 head & oversized 2x12, V30 Bogner cab for about 2 years now. For the past year I've been playing allot of small gigs, so I've been taking my grab-and-go Maz 38 1x12 combo for the majority of my gigs. My Shiva has been gathering dust in my home studio. Last night I plugged into it and I just smiled from ear-to-ear. That amp is simply one of the greatest sounding, most versitile amps I've ever played through. Great clean channel, great OD channel...it sounds way fat & huge. My Strat and PRS both sound godlike through it. It does everything from Jazz to Blues to Classic rock and more. Nice fat reverb too. This amp has to be the best 2 channel amp ever made! Can I get a witness?
