For Blues:

Oh DEAR GOD, YES!

  • Breaks up with natural tube distortion, giving you that great classic blues sound!
  • Plenty loud enough for your live blues shows and will cut through that mix!

For Country:

ABSOLUTELY!

  • Offers that nice break up (just over the edge) that country players dig!
  • Plenty loud enough for your live shows and has lots of twang to cut through that mix!

For Jazz:

Yep - Go for it!

  • Enough headroom without breaking up in a live Jazz situation. Let's face it, your drummer uses brushes…you're not gonna get tube drive at this volume.
  • You'll never use the dirt channel, but it's there, HOWARD!

For Metal:

Okay….hear me out on this one….

  • If you're into grunge, this is a GREAT AMP!
  • Gets a really nice swampy tone so if you're into that "swamp metal"….. okay.
  • Not gonna give you a Dimebag Darrell tone.
  • I reapeat, this isn't a "high gain" amp, but a "swampy gain" amp. If you want a tight diode sound, this ain't it.
