    Got my Bella yesterday. It has a big, beautiful sound. Even at lower volumes it is full, with a tight bass. Mids and highs are warm and clear. After a few hours I still haven't tried an OD pedal. Nothing but a Wet Reverb. The cleans are so good I just haven't wanted to dirty them up :). I will, though, and will report on that. So far it's exactly what I hoped it would be.

    Are they worth the asking price? I found them a few weeks back. The ampilifers are great to look at. And what can it really do that others in that price range can't?

    I'm curious how this compares to my Port City Pearl 50watter. The Pearl is pretty damn amazing!

    What does it do others don't? Clean tone. I've tried Redplate CD, Two Rock Studio Pro 22 and 35, and many others. So far, this one is tops.

    Austin guitar house and Humbucker Music both have them I believe.

    Rowdyyates, what do you think of the boost? Is it a tonestack bypass type of boost?

    I don't use boost and haven't even tried it. I'll check it out though. I'll let Husky comment on the circuitry.

    Yeah--I played mine first with a Saturn V and realized I didn't need it. I do like my Klon in there. Also tried it with my baritone since the bass is so nice and that was really great. Gigging it tonight.

    Hey Rowdy - I'm really interested in this amp as well. What kind of guitars/pups are you playing through it? Genre?

    A Tele and a Strat, both with vintage style pickups. Genre is just about anything but metal. Classic rock, blues, country, jazz.

    Guitar Emporium in Louisville, KY, has one. I just plugged in out of curiosity, but it is really a treat. I mean, really. Just a great, authoritative clean sound. Kind of has me wondering if I can find room in the stable.
