    I just got mine in today. quite difficult to dial-in with my board for only having a treb and bass. Not that bright, little more on the low side. I just moved into an appartment and the volume levels are great. Soft and low when you need it (without losing tone), but don't let this thing fool you. It gets pretty damn loud for 6w. hand wired, custom hand made speaker, reliable co., for $499... two thumbs up. Fattoneguitars.com has them

    How is the clean on it, when does it start to break up, and how well does it work with pedals?

    I'm curious about this and the new Lexington Reverb.

    Mine is pretty cool, takes pedals well, stays clean until about 4 or 5, but sounds soooooo much better with a 12" speaker.....
    FWIW

    Really like my Concord. I agree it takes pedals well and sounds great at all volumes.

    Tweak, what 12 inch speaker are you using with yours?

    I've got at Lexington Reverb. I run it through a 1X12 extention cab, and play it on stage a church. I run my pedalboard into the front and it really covers lots of ground. I usually run the volume most of the way open and use my guitar volume knob to clean it up. For more crunch I overdrive it with a Drivetrain ll. I really like it a lot. Very loud for six watts. Even switched to 1.5 watts it's suprisingly loud

    Just bought a Valvetrain Concord yesterday, from Melodee Music in VA. LOVE it so far. I, too, needed something a little smaller I could play in my apartment, and was afraid 6 watts would be too loud, but even at low volumes this sounds great (although - I was able to crank it up in the store, and it sounded even better!).

    Sounds great, looks great, everything seems to be functioning as it should - for $500, I'm very happy with it. I'm going to think about a Trenton down the road for my "outdoors" amp...
