Picked up a 5112 yesterday.Loving it so far, what I was looking for in a small toneful package.I'm a fan of the less is better approach so the 1 knob works for me!Checked out a Valvetrain Tallboy, Victoria Ivy League, and a Swart STR-Tweed as well and the 5112 won out for my needs/wants.Off I go for some more Tele/tweed rockin':JAM

I get happy when I read of another Victoria owner. I have two and happy with them. Think I would like an Ivy League some day.

Congrats I am getting major GAS for an Ivy League sounds tighter and bigger than a deluxe from the demos I've heard. What did you think of it when you made your choice??

I used to have a 518 that was the perfect match for my single coil Fenders, but didn't hang as well with my humbuckers. I suspect the 5112 would do the trick very nicely. Congrats on your new amp!

lukeII, The Ivy League sounded great, great cleans, almost blackface-like, responded well to pick attack and dynanmics.Had a nice warm dimed sound as well, the 5112 was a little gnarlier when dimed which is what I was looking for.

I had the same exact experience as ^^ Ivy League stayed cleaner at higher volumes and was a cool amp for a chimey vibe but I preferred the 5112's gnarliness. Granted the 5112 gives up the goods pretty early compared to the Ivy, which is a louder amp.

BJW Thanks for the feedback that is my impression of it as well, which is why I like it. Mark Baier makes great amps and so many many flavors of tweed that there is something for everyone.
