    Picked it up today.....lots of fun going through the different amp settings. A little complicated but I should have it together soon.

    Congrats, really nice amp I use mine all the time.

    You may have already found this out, but to drive that tube sound and have the amp sing, turn the volume and master vol nobs to 11! and adjust the wattage (and volume) using only the nob at the back. Really makes all of the differance!

    Congratulations on the new amp!! Monkeyfied's advice is right on.........also, get an OCD pedal from Fulltone (I know, more $$$), set it on boutique clean, and rejoice in some real creamy tube goodness!!! Have fun!

    Actually read the manual too. There are a couple of things in there that will surprise you (or at least they surprised me). I'm not usually one to read a manual until I need something specific but this one has some information that's going to be useful.

    I miss my vox, I've been watching to get another one but haven't decided on which one I want. I've been thinking about one of the 15r's to go along with my vibro champ in a stereo rig.
