You are looking for a versatile, exclusive, head-turner amplifier. You love hoarse and growly drives without giving up all the punch and power. Dislike trebly amps. Dislike traditional tolex finish. You want to have two volumes always available, for example, for rhythms and solos. You want a lightweight head to carry everywhere without sacrificing versatility.
