This Budda is a keeper as a backup and a very unique sound I really like.
I think many guitarists would really be surprised by an SD45. You really have to be in the room with one of them to truly understand their appeal. Don't let hype (or in this case, anti-hype) keep you from checking out a very toneful and powerful amp!
The solid state rectifier tightens up the amps response and makes for a quick attack time on the note. This amp is for the player whose sites are set on the large arena.
