I think I have finally found the low powered amp I've been looking for. After owning a Maz jr, BFDR and a Blockhead firstborn...this little 2x10 is the winner for me. Fantastic reverb, solid bottom end, thick and chewy tones just seem to ooze out of this amp. It cleans up beautifully with the guitar's volume, yet will will really scream when you wind it up. Compared to the Maz jr...well there isn't. It just beats that amp on every comparison I can make. MUCH better reverb, thicker sounding and a much more pleasing OD tone. The BFDR is what it is, but again, the reverb isn't as good, nor is the tone as thick and full. The Maz and the BH are gone. I'm running the BFDR and the 17 in a two amp setup, using a Lehle amp switcher...I can't imagine it getting much better!
