I wanted to love this amp and in many ways I do . . . I liked it so much, I returned the B-Stock item and bought a new one. The amp is stylish, light and punchy - plenty for my purposes (blues/soul/Americana). Unfortunately, there seemed to be some issues with this particular item and I returned it in favor of a new one, which is now my main performance amp. Thoroughly recommended if you like a warm, old-fashioned tubey sound.
