I was first in line at Carvin to get one. Still have it.

    I love it, the tone is great because it's pretty much "my" sound. I occasionally toss an MXR Wylde OD in front of it for freaky gain and a slight change of flavor to my gain shape, but the amp doesn't need that. I tend to use a Wampler compressor in front as well, but that's my own crutch and no comment on the amp.

    Anyway, I love it, it's versatile and it can bring the hi-gain. Maybe it's not a Fortin NATAS or whatever but I don't need that much gain, I'm good with the nearly-absurd gain I have now.

    If you have specific Q's about it, I'll see if I can help.
