Actually it was 2 days ago. I haven't been able to give it a "real" test at home, cause its REALLY loud. My 30 works well at home, but this thing is alot louder. I really didn't try to dial in low volumes, cause I didn't buy it for that. I was playing it at "scared to play and piss off the neighbors" volume. Which means pretty easily heard outside, and REALLY annoying to my neighbor in the condo with the adjoining wall. It sounds real good with more tone options than my 30(mid +/- on high gain side and 5 pos. rotary on clean). I can tell I wouldn't use the - setting on high gain cause its just too scooped sounding. Reverb is nothing to write home about, very subtle. More just to wet the sound a bit than provide a big reverb as effect, I think. I have my lexicon for the stereo side big verbs anyway. I'll know more when I get it into a band mix in the next couple weeks. The middle mid setting is like the old versions without(like my 30) and the + setting brings some Marshall-esque higher mids in. It reminds me slightly of the blue rev. Uber on the high gain side, but different - more class 'A'ish. That's the closest comparison I can think of though. I have 45 days to decide if I want to keep it or return it. It works equally well with the footswitch or plugging into the individual channel jacks from what I can tell. I'll do some clips at some point. I'd like to change some preamp tubes, but I need to get a tube layout chart first. I got some cool lower gain tones with the level, gain and edge at lower settings than I'd normally use. This is an issue I've heard people complain about with the 30, either not enough gain or too much. It seems like there's a slightly better taper with the adjustment of thos 3 knobs than the 30. Obviously slightly tighter with more clean headroom as you'd expect. Haven't played a ton on the clean channel yet. I'll report back when either I hear it in a band situation or do some clips.
