im not getting any amps right now. this is just for future reference because my friend had a carvin guitar and it was nice so i looked in their site and i also found out they made amplifiers. the sx series caught my eye and now im asking about them. Spl!nter, how does it compare to a tube amp. id ask you on AIM but i dont have that

its cleaner then a christian on valentines day (harmless joke)

its got that smart effects so that when you are playing on clean and switch to overdrive, the note from the clean carries a little while your still playing with distortion.

if you liek the tone of tube amps, heres the cool thing: its louder then a tube amp of the same wattage, so you know its not cheap digital... and with it brings the cleans solid states are known for
