My buddy needed an amp and this amp looked like the best for the money. I played one when I was younger and it was alright. Not quite what I was looking for back then. So we go and check it out. I bring my R9 and Klon and try it at the sellers house. It was ok. I didn't really crank it because his family was in the same room waiting to see if my friend was going to purchase the amp. He bought it because it was a great price and we took it to his house. That's when the magic happened. I turned it up to a little break up on the clean channel and hit the Klon with my R9 and the most beautiful tone came out. I say great job to the Fender builders for making a reasonable priced amp that sounds great. It very well may be my next purchase.
