I'm not sure about this amp at all. I've heard some decent clips but they do seem a bit dark, compressed and "heavy" for lack of a better word. I have my master list of Voxy/Marshally amps that I'm keeping an eye out for and I have some trade bait as well. So, it makes it tough to thread the needle sometimes. Anyway, are my perceptions wrong that this black and purple amp is more of just a high(er) gainer 2 channel puppy with a lot of "nice to haves" but not quite enough simple, clean character. I guess for comparison I'm consider used Top Hat, Vox, Goodsell, Fender, Valvetech Haysee, Suhr Badger, etc... I just get the feeling this one is closer to my old Rivera Fandango than the others listed. The Rivera was a GREAT jack of all trades, but I did not jive with the gain channel. Thoughts?
