    Good point. I've only experienced about 10 different amps so far, and I'm way more interested in whether I like the sound, rather than whether or not it sounds like something else.

    Sorry chaps, it doesn't sound like a Princeton at all, It really sounds like this.

    At the top of page 4:
    "Sets the delay time. When you press this button two or more times, the delay time is set to the interval between presses. "

    For adjusting the echo/delay time.

    Has anyone who played a Katana played through Garage Band SW.....

    Its practically the same thing.....

    And thats not saying much.

    Compared to Spider 5, Roland, Vox Valvetronix the Katana is not as good. I really dont get the hype but oh well.....


    And yeah it will never sound as good as my Blues Deluxe and some pedals......never. Does it get the job donw at the price point....yeah but lets not pretend its nothing more than a basic modelor with mediocre to average tone no better than the rest of the modelors in the price range.

    Holy bat guano............. you scored the GA-FC footswitch! Congrats on both the amp and switch! :)

    Yes I scored the switch. That's what I was waiting for. Sweetwater was holding the amp for me for 3 weeks waiting for the switch to come in. I contacted them and told them to go ahead and send the amp. Wouldn't you know it, that switch showed up on the tracker a mere 3 hours later. It really is fun to mess with and quite easy to use.

    Oh and I will ignore the trolls. It's amazing how threatened people are by solid state. They feel the need to come on and voice their strong opinions. As an old bass player I had the 80 lb Ampeg SVT head for years which is the holy grail of bass tone. But guess what is happening in the bass world? People are pulling monsterous professional tones out of 4 lb solid state heads. There are the same offended trolls on Talkbass. How about Alex Lifeson from Rush? He doesn't even use tube amps anymore! His tone is amazing and versatile using the Fractal ( I think thats how you spell it). Tube amps do sound wonderful. I would love to have a Marshall and a Fender Twin and a Princeton and a Tweed but I don't have the money or the room. Plus my only gig at the moment is at church. (Not alot of gigs at an Army post in Korea!) I need many sounds at a low stage volume and I know this will do it.

    Even with money and room a person these days would have to ask themselves whats the pros and cons vs. a good solidstate amp.

    I'm sure with wifey's ok (you know how it works) I could have the amps listed above. I see no benefit and thus for me no interest.

    If a person was looking to buy and asking me what a good home or gig amp is with today's offerings I wouldn't suggest anything but solidstate.

    Bar players were ditching their tube amps for Bandits twenty years ago.

    In 2017 the offerings are exceptional.
