So, I've been doing a lot of research on this amp and I can't deny the fact the great sounding tones coming from the amp are REAL. I've spent hours analyzing the tones from the 20 or so youtube vids and I'm very impressed. This amp puts out some really great lead tones and my mouth was watering as I fantasized about owning one someday. Meanwhile, I've been in contact with Nik at Ceriatone and he's nothing but the BEST with replies to questions. I'm not sure how busy he is building amps, but he deserves tons of credit in the customer service arena. I plan to use this amp for my lead tones. I've already got the clean tones covered with my TR Classic Reverb. I've been trying to use pedals for the dumble type leads, but pedals can only get you so far. So close...but no cigar. Well, the lead time is 2 months so it's time to twiddle my thumbs until it gets here!
