I am using it with a goth flying v with a Seymour Duncan invader and dimebucker, the amp fits this guitar very well and my style. There is no feedback I can hear on any setings. The crunch dial gives the amp huge variety, but there is no real heavy ditortion but this doesn't bother me as I prefer to use a pedal.
Overall Impression — 10
As I have said it fits my style very well, I have been playing about 2 and a half years and this is my first stack amp. If it were stolen I wouldn't buy anything differant as this my favourate and best value amp I have played through I didn't really compare it to many other amps befor buying as this is the best metal amp at this price, and there is nothing more I want from it. Overall I belive this to be the best value metal amp with great versitility and durability, and I would recommend it to anyone who plays anythingg from grindcore to rock n roll.
Reliability & Durability — 10
The amp has never broken bt I have only had it a month, the amp seems extremely well made and the kick proof grill does what it says on the tin. Furthermore with the camo edition the camo isnt painted it is actull DPM fabric which eliminates chipping and protects the amp.

I have the LX120RH head and the matching cab in the limited edition camo colour, It is a very versitile amp for my style which is mainly Death Metal and other extreme metal styles. It has two channels Clean and Crunch, the clean channel is crisp and clear and the response to the eq (pariculary the bass)is extremely strong. There is a CD input aswell which is a nice touch. There isnt any features I wish it had as I play with quite a simple set up (distortion pedal through the clean channel). Another great touch is the 'crunch' dial, unlike any other gain knob it goes through all the differant styles of Drive from slightly dirtyed clean and blues to thrash and old skool metal. It has pleanty of power for me as I use it for bedroom use (I was suprised t how queit it can go at bedroom levels)and band practices but I have yet to gig it yet but I'm confident its loud enuff!
