    hi guys and girls!

    I decided to order this amp from Ceriatone and I was wondering if any of you have this amp or had in the past?

    if so did you have the Mastervolume mod and if so, how did it work for you when cranking the amp? and i mean in band practise rooms and smaller gigs, not in the bedroom:)

    did you have any other mods made? what mods if so?

    just want to hear what experiences other people have had with this amp, looks and seems great though:)

    the style im playing is Thin Lizzy, Pearl Jam, Jimmy Pageish etc

    Im playing les pauls!

    hope this amp nails those sounds:)

    I think you'll be happy. I have not experienced the bass models, but if you wanted to put it in lead spec, there's not much to it. I highly support the PPI Master Volume. It's not going to sound great at beroom volumes, but roll it back about halfway and it manages the volume greatly and seems to tighten everything up a little. Enjoy!

    Great amp! I've been gigging one the last 4 years or so. I use set mine clean and use pedals. Great pedal platform, great clean tone. I love mine.
