Sound — 10
I'm either playing a Gibson Les Paul Studio throught it all the time, or an Ibanez JS2000. With the les paul the tone is incredible and on the OD channels and crunch it sound amazing. With the Js, the tone is great but with a little les distortion because the pickups on the guitar don't distort much. The clean channel does not distort very much at high volume. This amp is very versatile with all the different channels and it's awesome

Overall Impression — 10
The music I play is very progressive like Dream Theater. This amp is perfect for it on the lead channel. I've been playing for a very long time. I own a Morley Bad Horsie Wah that sounds great through it, also a DigiTech Whammy pedal that also sounds great through it. My favorite things are the crunch and lead channels. This blows away any other combo amp. Overall it is an amazing sounding amp that is very dependable.

Reliability & Durability — 9
This amp is very reliable and durable. I would definitley use this at a gig without a backup. This amp has never given me any problems. The only thing that is a slight hassle is that if you are someone Who will be just using it as a bedroom amp, but you have a few gigs here and there, it's going to be very tough to move it around because it weighs 67 pounds.

This amp features 2 different 12 inch celestion speakers. One is the Celestion Heritage and the other is the Celestion Vintage. The amp is 100 watts and has 3 channels when not using the pedal. When you use the footswitch, it adds 2 more overdrive channels which is great for gigs. There is definitely a big difference with the two different speakers going at the same time, and it sounds incredible. It's like the classic Marshall sound, but on steroids.
