Switchable power down to 5 watts, or a built in attenuator.

Three channels,clean,crunch,and lead,each with its own eq and presence,a global parallel effects loop,a series effect loop for the clean channel,and a shared series loop for crunch and lead,100 watts,2x12 combo.Basically what I want in an amp is,a fender twin for cleans,a JCM800 for crunch,and a hot rodded JCM800 for leads.

4 channels. Lead, Solo, Clean, Overdrive. A combo that has two speakers, that can be attached to an external cabinet, but its speakers are STILL used. no bypassed speakers. all channels have an EQ, with the clean having a prescence control. reverb and delay built in. FX loop. power can be changed from 60 watt to 120 watt. knobs are backlit.

pretty cool huh?

A robot that pops out of a compartment in the cabinet, that will load it in and out of my gigs.

- EL34
- 50 watt, switchable down to 30
- Three channels with independent volume, EQ, and presence (clean, hotrodded plexi voiced crunch, lead channel voiced similar to a Bogner Ecstasy)
- Effects loop
- Master volume
