I picked up one of these combo units this weekend for $225. I am very very pleasantly surprised. First off, it looks GREAT - when I brought it in the house my wife said, "Wow, that thing is beautiful." Red tolex? Not sure, but it looks more like leather. 60 watts, SS, 1 12" speaker. The reverb is okay, not spring. The FX section is pretty useless. No big loss there. Two channels, clean and lead. Okay, it's no Fender BF, but for this kind of money it sounds darn good! Has an FX loop, plus XLR DI out. I haven't tried it with any pedals yet as I've just wanted to see how it sounds by itself. So far I have no complaints. Last night I dialed in just a little dirt, plugged in my Tele, hit the bridge pup - rock 'n roll heaven, baby! I'm curious to see if anybody else here has even bothered to try one of these suckers out.
