With what (s) guitar (s) / low (s) or effect (s) do you play?
A Gibson Epiphone (and yes it's true not given)

What kind of sound you get and with what settings ("crystalline", "fat ",....)?
What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?
His bold, what I always wanted, a grain epai and very present. His heavy rings, vintage rings and if the rule correctly. The saturation or a slight crunch, are magnificent, and, especially, are very versatile guitarist after the game, the ataque, or power with which we play. This amp is not made for modern disto, his remains focused year 80, in any case without effects pedals. The sound is also clear his sublime, round, warm and Mouelle biensure with my guitar.
Attention all the time, there is only régalge per channel, only the volume can be dofférent. So you play with a certain pitcher, saturation and EQ on the 2 channels at the same time, the major weakness of this amp.

I have been 600 € with a baffle JCM 800 Lead 1960A.

Without a doubt!
