After hearing all the soundclips and some killer ones here, I decided Ive spent much more on overdrive pedals and decided to order the head+cab:D

The demo piece was sold in the shop, so I havent even tried the amp yet!!

What can I expect as a bedroom amp?

If I get 2 sets, is it helpful for gigging and jams?

cheers
Sid

I've had mine for some time now and I can say that you'll love it. It has a much more open big dollar sound than the Epi Valve Jr. which sounds boxy to my ears. It has become my go-to real guitar amp now when recording at home. Otherwise I use a Vamp Pro or Pod XT. It takes pedals really well and just records great. You'll have no regrets. I'm also pumping mine into a 120 watt single 12 Eminence speaker. I like that better than my vintage Celestion 1x12. Good investment in my opinion.

The videos are promising and I was highly impressed with some of Crate's other budget-minded class a tube amps, so I'd expect it to be on the impressive side for the price.

With the pentode/triode switch, bedrooms might be useable, but based on my valve junior, even 3W would probably be pretty loud for a bedroom if you want a tube overdrive/breakup tone....and basically unusable in the bedroom if you want an all-out rock tone out of it.

I'm waiting for the 15 W, but I was really impressed with the 5 W.

You can beat a Belov design.
