2x12ax7 in the pre and a 6L6 power tube, 2 channels clean and ultra, with a power attenuator down to 0.5 watts (6 watts through the ultra with the thunders active gain is definitely not a neighbour pleaser), tube driven effect loop and some EQ mods built in, you certainly get some bang for your buck. The clean channel has a fine sparkly sound with single coils and P-90s, and you can get it breaking up nicely digging in with humbuckers, the ultra channel kicks the second preamp tube in and it's overdrive all the way. there's a footswitch boost (shame it isn't a channel changer, that has to be done manually). The amp is designed with modification in mind, I haven't looked at the tubes but assume investment there, and a celestion upgrade would produce results.
Still early days yet, but so far I'm thrilled with it. Compared to the little champ 600, and the AC4 †I played a few month ago this is just so much better put together and so much better value. It;s hard to get a bad sound out of it..and amplitubes gathering cyberdust as i now †begin a search for necessary pedals.
