"The tones are faithful to original ’60s sound. You get strong power amp distortion at relatively low levels, creating the impression of a larger, louder amp. The highs sizzle with excitement, but never get nasty...The clean tones are wonderful too. They’re far from Fender-like, but they have an airy shimmer you don’t always associate with big British amps. The single-band tone control is a delight, with usable sounds throughout its range. This amp sounds good no matter how you set the controls."
