Yes. I use a Super Comp for a little more gain, and it sounds great. It also takes my Fuzz really well. And if you lean more towards distortion pedals, it still sounds great with them.

It can get this tone with about 3/4 volume (no pedals, 3 watt mode): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMQ72dVVXi8


As a note, I changed the tubes as soon as I got it. Put in a Sovtek 12AX7, and a JJ EL84. The original tubes are pretty cheap looking.

I think so. I haven't had a single regret in buying it!

If your drummer is willing to quiet down a bit, you can get over drums.
I recommend that you do replace the tubes, but don't get a sovtek 12AX7 in it. I'd get something like a JJ to smooth things out.

I haven't tried it, but probably. I have to use an attenuator to keep it at a reasonable volume for bedroom playing, even at only 12 o'clock on the volume, and thats on 3 watt mode. 5 watts is slightly louder.

I've got a drummer friend that I've been meaning to jam with. Maybe I'll do that this weekend.


Edit: What the guy above me said.


Except for the JJ bit.

Wow, did you discover a parallel universe of quiet drummers? The drummer in my brother's band is louder than the PA at our local, they put almost no drums through the speakers and still struggle to get the rest of the mix above the level of his drumming.
