This was my dream amp since 2003. Finally arrived yesterday and I love it but I think it may be too loud for my needs. I'm sad :-(. The Tones are exactly what I wanted. I live in a large loft and I could not get it to 9oclock. I used it in half power and the Loop Volume, and that helps, does seems to take away some punch, but still sounds good. I knew it would be loud! But thought it would be a bit more manageable. I'm sure I'm probably not using the loop volume well enough. I'm struggling, but will spend more time with it. I also have not used it with my band yet, so that will make a difference. It somehow seems way louder than my 50w JCM800. Any suggestions??
