Played a TA30 combo in a store today at low volume and liked what I heard. I have no idea how it sounds loud. Cleans sounded pretty good and the dirt sounded real good. If it sounded like this loud, it would be very nice. But it has 6 12ax7s and 4 el84s... and lot of tubes equals maintenance cost. When the reverb switch was put on, you could hear the background noise level go up (not the fan). I tried the 5:25 also. Liked the clean and crunch (on the same channel) but not the burn channel. But you cannot switch between the clean and crunch (have to do it manually). Anyone try the TA30 and like/dislike?
