I received my new RockyTop 18 watt 112 combo today and have been playing it for the past 2 hours. Mine has a Hellatone speaker. Following is an ecstatic, rambling, tone-drunk review. I am EXTREMELY pleased. What a little rocker! I only play strats, so I can only comment on the tone with single-coils, but the sounds I am getting are amazing. Incredibly touch sensitve and very responsive to volume and tone control from the guitar. Plenty of volume for smaller venues, but not so loud as to blow off my kneecaps when practicing at home. Bedroom amp? Maybe not. But if I am upstairs and my wife and son are downstairs, I am pretty sure I can practice at damn near full volume without scaring them out of the house. I'll have to try that tonite. Both channels sound great. I'll have to learn the effective use of tremolo as this is my first amp with such a feature. It sounds too cool not to use it. BTW - With the channels jumpered, I have more than enough gain to match Joe Bonamassa's tone on the song "Blues Deluxe" (the tone, NOT the playing) with nothing but volume control - with the channels jumpered, it is really a beast. But it still cleans up beautifully with volume control and pick-attack. I realize I am currently in the throes of the "honeymoon," but good lord this amp sounds great. On a separate note, this is the first amp in over a year to arrive in one piece. It's the first to arrive by FedEx. The three other damaged amps came by way of UPS. I think I'll stick with FedEx for now on.
