This amp is definitely not a bad bit of gear to have with you! It has great tones, The clean tone is stunning as with all the "JCM" series. It's very loud for a 50W head...Unfortunately this is where the good things for me stop. Although it has a great range of tones, at higher volumes it gets pretty muddy. Now for some styles this really doesn't make much difference, say you're in a hard rock band, because your gain will never really go as high as mine. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not cranking the gain dial full, I have it at around 4-5 but even at that level it starts to lose clarity.
Now this doesn't mean I don't like this amp... Far from it! It's a great sounding amp and I expect it will stay in my collection for years to come.I would suggest going to try out this amp as for my style of playing/genre, It lacks the clarity and punch I love from a certain EVH inspired amp I've owned, For you it may be just what you've been looking for!
