I have the chance to acquire one of these in a trade, and wanted to get some folks' opinions on it. I don't have much experience with various amps, and have never played a H&K. My initial searching returned good reviews. Trade value of my item is about $300. I could also sell mine, and pick up a Crate V1512 for under $200. I have heard those are great. I use pedals for OD mainly so I really just want good cleans and a good foundation for pedals. the effects loop on the H&K is a nice plus.
