Footswitch, tube rattle etc. I have the 2x12 combo and it's not a bad amp at all.

what is tube rattle



When the vibration from the speaker causes thetubes to shake, it sounds really bad, but is usually only a problem with combos, since you are going with a head/cab configuration it shouldn't be a problem.
