This amp sounds amazing, I can get nice glassy cleans, jazzbo chords sound lush and full, thats just the rhythm channel. The dirty side is thick milkshake sounding distortion, you can get Cream tones all day long, bump the gain and you can get Van-Halenesque tones or liquid sounding tones simmilar to E.J with a visual sound h2o in the loop. With that said the cons for me is how loud this beast is, it is as loud or louder than any 100 watt amps I have heard. This may be a problem for me. I have never played with any attenuation, I am not up on which one is the best but there is no way even at some of the 500 seat venues we play that I could get the master past 3. The other problem is that my main guitar is a 2 humbucker full hollowbody, the guitar thru the Budda sqeals like a banshee with the master at 3 or 4. Having said that, none of the issues I had are anything related to the tone or build quality. Hopefully attenuation will help with some of the feedback issues, otherwise I might have to off it.
