I grabbed one of these on ebay today. I think it will be a good backup to have and the price was extremely reasonable...less than the flash-sale closeout prices from last year. I think I'll let our singer use it for the next little while. He's using a Hot Rod Deville with a simple knob attenuator in the effects loop to tame it a bit. We've been talking about his guitar taking on the "clean with balls" role and leaving the dirtier stuff to me. I think it will be easier to get to the sweet spot with this amp. We'll see.
