I played a Micro Dark today through a 1x12 Marshall cab. The overdrive sound wasn't particularly for me -- although I know some people love it. But I also pegged the volume knob to 10 and slowly raised up the gain knob and...wow! Beautiful, sparkly clear cleans, and pretty damn loud. You'd be at rehearsal level before it starting giving you break-up. Very nice sounding. Just thought I'd give a heads up on this if anyone is looking to spend $150 or so and get a loud, clean, SS amp that weighs less than a well-made roast beef sandwich and sounds pretty damn good. Unfortunately I did not get a chance to run any dirt pedals through it but I'd be surprised if they didn't sound good.
