I just bought a used SD 18 (series 2) from member tombba (thanks for a great transaction!!) and sweet mother of moses, this thing is AMAZING!!!! Now I should say I've had LOTS of amps... and I mean lots.... I've had Fender, Marshall, Rivera, Zinky, Bogner, Splawn, Mesa, etc. My main rig now is a Mesa Stiletto Ace with a G Major in the loop. I LOVE this rig, but needed something smaller for grab and go or smaller, less volume situations. I've tried some other smaller amps and I really liked the Mesa Lonestar Special (not sure it had enough gain) and a few others, but saw a good deal on the Budda so I thought I'd give it a shot. Wow... just wow! Sounds amazing and there are LOTS of tones in there. Great warm clean, great slight breakup, and all the way up to smooth singing leads. I just got the thing yesterday so I'm definitely early in the honeymoon, but feel that this could be it for sure. I know there's lots of Budda love here, but just wanted to say now I get it!
