Yep, they're incredible little amps, really awesome cranked tube amp tones at manageable levels. I'm really GASing for one at the moment..

my friends dad used to have one, unfortunately I never got the chance to try it out

but I've heard NOTHING but good things

I'm either gonna save up for one of them, or get the Carrera, if I feel fx loop and reverb are that important to me (probably will be)
