Well, it was one of the best amps I've ever owned at doing the higher gain 80's tones and had a nice clean but lacked a little in the modern dept. Really cool guy from boston made me a great offer on the head and a charvel I had so I took it. Now Im on the fence and thinking either going Fractal again:encouragement: or perhaps trying a Suhr pt100. Pete happens to be one of my favorite current guitarist and I love everything he does. You only see glowing reviews of the pt100.
