weighs 38 lbs. out of the box. 25" wide,11" deep, 10.5" tall, Covered in a very nice, heavily grained ox blood color Tolex. All steel hardware, no plastic anywhere.Front inputs, one guitar input and a headphone input. Then the left channel is the gain channel with all cool chicken head knobs.you got gain, level, treble, middle and bass. Then, channel 2 is Volume, treble, middle and bass, nice and simple. Then, on your DSP it is your 3 main FX, Delay, Flanger and chorus. Then it has a separate reverb (digital) control. Back Panel, the power cord input, not a thin chincy ribbon chord. This amp has class 2 wiring, with 2 speaker output jacks on the back. One specifically for a 16 ohm speaker cab and another for anything up to 16 ohms. So, it will run up to 2 (a pair) of 4, 8, or 16 ohm cabs no problem. It has a direct out out for running right into the mixer etc and the D-out has a level control. the foot switch that comes with it simply turns on the DSP and switches between channel one and 2. It is a nice foot switch, again, all steel, no plastic, good solid switches that have that click to them so you know and can feel in your foot that the switch has been activated. The chord for it is 20 feet long. There is no POP or SNAP when changing from channel one to channel 2, it is clean and seamless. Last, but not least, it has a FX loop FX return FX send . The amp construction itself is absolutely rock solid, the transformer is large, nice and heavy, the pots are chrome chassy inserted and very sturdy. The knobs are heavy duty, all chicken head knobs on the front and back. Beefy power section, switches, knobs, pots, Channel 1, the dirty/over drive channel.IM impressed. it out shines Fender stage, Ampeg, crate, line 6, (it kills the Flextone.) The gain control gets dirty quick, giving you a lot of versatility between your fendery / b52 / orange / mesa dual rec. type of feel. And has a percussive womp on the low end. The gain knob really works in unison with the mids knob, scoop the mids and dime the gain and it is a beast! Run the gain down to 3 and the mids up to 7 and you got Texas blues all the way, run the mids down to 4-5 and you got acdc. The triggerman is tighter, more powerful and has a more dynamic to the string / pick ratio, it can be soft and gentle or loud and percussive, just with a tad bit less warmth than a expensive tube amp. Channel 2, awesome, great organic clean tones. LOUD without breaking up the reverb added to this makes it even nicer, and with a slow chorus setting, neck pick up, and some good speakers, you got a thousand $ tone at your finger tips. again, the EQ section is very prolific in both channels which makes the amp very versatile. Take the bass up to about 6, the mids to 5 and treble to 8, throw it on the neck pick up and you'll fall in love. The other thing I found cool about this, is , you can use channel 2 as a power plant for a floor board. it is clean, loud , has a nice reverb and takes anything you throw into it. You can also put the volume setting for the clean channel at 10 and get the half broken up late 50's early 60's type of sounds. The DSP section, ok, ill be real frank here, it lacks quite a bit. all the flange settings are pretty horrid and go deep, with no way to set the depth on the flange, it can cause your speakers to wolf out at high volume levels when the flange goes deep.The delay settings are clean, plain, Set, neck pick up, clean channel, volume on 5 treble on 6 mids on 7 and bass on 7, reverb half way up and use the last chorus settings and it is pink Floyd dead on. Crank the reverb to about 7-8 and use the chorus and it sounds as good as a fender pro reverb. on the DSP section you got 2 out of 5 chorus settings that are cool, zero usable flange settings, and 2-3 real nice delay settings. the Reverb is separate, as mentioned and is actually fantastic for digital reverb, which if someone bumps the rig, you don't have that clanging of the springs. Here is the one caveat with this amp, and channel 2, the clean channel, when the reverb is past around 5, with all but 4 of the DSP settings, there is a nasty rasp in the body of the reverb. So, to the ear it seems like your cleans have the undertones of a slightly over driven tone, which isn't good, BUT, if you use the slow chorus or slow delay DSP settings or No DSP at all, the reverb sounds fantastic. It sounds great with the over drive channel as well, Notes on the amp. Its cool, versatile, scoop the mids and overdrive it and you can shame any of the Krank amps I've tried. Its loud, all the EQ sections in both channels are very dynamic, it is a power house for channel 2 for use with out board pre amps. It out performs a lot of many solid state amps I have owned. it will surprise and please you. it is definitely self adjusting ohm load wise. The master volume knob is way dynamic and did I mention , it gets blazingly loud.
