I'm surrounded by other amps, Peavey 6505, Marshal DSL50 Head, Mesa Mini Rectifier and Mark V:25, Traynor YCV40... And a trio of Katana too! And guess what, I always sound the same whatever I plug in! So when I tweak my amp, I never have something in plan, I go with the moment and usually it takes me just a few second to get something I like and once I'm done, I simply start to rock! So all that babbling above just to say, I was not looking to mimic anything and I simply got something that made me smile. It's been over 2.5 years with the Katana and for the price, it still makes me happy, I really wish I had such an amp when I started out. We live in great times!
