Hi, I am checking this amp out for possible purchase and am still a neophyte when it comes to knowing what to look for. The amp seems to play fine(all features work) except for 2 things: 1) When switched to standby, there is a big volume swell. 2) It's not very loud. On 10 it's just loud-ish. If you run a pedal or preamp into it it does get much louder. Here's some pics. She really sounds pretty sweet and the reverb/tremolo are nice. Any insight you all can offer would be greatly appreciated.
