Have been after a smaller amp I can drive harder at lower volumes for a while as while I can crank them at home at uni this wouldn't fly so well This orange is definitively the answer to that! It comes with two channels but can easily be used with just the dirty channel and the guitar volume knob - with beautiful gain staging from clear cleans through to an intense distortion. Perfect amp paired with my 59 relic I really can't fault it. Was a little skeptical of how the natural channel would sound considering the only control is volume but it really sings well. I am sure I read an interview with Ade Emsley where he stated if you have a good guitar and can play it'll sound good, and if you don't and can't it won't. Very true so far! On the full 15 watt mode I haven't had the volume past 3/4 and it is really cranking at that. Would easily be heard over most drummers. A small amp having a proper tube FX loop is a real added bonus as well. Would say overall for tone it really is very close to the 20th Anniversary Bogner Shiva which is not bad when you consider the price difference! Would highly recommend to anyone.
