    I was getting ready to ask had anyone got theirs yet. Getting ready to pull the trigger as we speak.

    I'll wait for some more demos, but there certainly wasn't anything I heard there that makes me want to change from my Orange to this.

    I didn't listen to the whole demo, just jumped around a bit. Sounds like there is too much gain on the blue channel, even at 2 on the gain knob. I'd like to hear it around 1 or with lower output pickups. Still interested in hearing other demos, but I don't think this is anything that'll make me run to trade my standard 5150iii for.

    Yeah, I never use that much gain, but then again, I don't play chug chug metal. I guess those guys will dig it.

    Buy my wolfgang first so I know I can get it back if the buyer ever sells it.

    I received the amp yesterday and all I did was stack it on top of Stealthy.
    I will try to hook it up and play it this weekend.
    Due to hearing issues--I have only played electric guitar 3 times this year. So it is doubtful I will post anything other than a written review.

    I'll bear the burden, then. Pack it back up and send it to my house. I've got a GoPro, SM57, an audio interface, Logic and have been playing electric all year. I'll make the videos.

    Not the amps. Just in general.
