the jensen is a little bassy but like someone else said, i bought this to get away from the lack of bass in my 10 inch peavy. i agree with the comment about the lack of volume but remeber this is a 120 watt mono head that will drive bigger cabinets so i think of it as a head with a pretty decent practice speaker that i can play with at home in my makeshift studio just fine. If i was gonna do clubs yeah well, an amp with 4 10's would be louder.
awestruck. i do agree the factory presets are weird, if u buy this amp, before u even play it, reset the factory presets - i got a floor model and they were all messed up. anyway, the factorys have a weird layout - sometimes they make sense but who goes from a mesa boogie sound in total distortion to spacerock wah wah on the next setting? still the sheer variability is tremendous.
since i dont gig out i dont know on this one.
havent used it - manual is good.
OK my decision was price based. But i dont care about having a tube amp or pre-amp - actually, having used alot of tube stuff, it was refreshing to buy solid state - there is a reason it was considered an improvement LOL! i wanted effects and economy and better sound than i had. The line 6 just dosent offer the range of modeling this amp does.
The Wow Factor:
the vampire name kicks ass and i want to get a coffin case to go w it LOL.
I give this a 10 because its ready to upgrade and made to do it - it will run 120 watts into a 4 ohm cabinet just like it is - thats because it is basically behringers 1200 head with an accesory speaker. extremely sensible and flexible design.
