I'm just a sucker for a good deal, even if it means a 3-hour drive round trip.
So far I like it a lot better than the BE-50 Deluxe that I had for almost 6 months, but that's not saying very much, honestly (I was pretty disappointed in that amp). We'll see if this one sticks, it has all of the features that I could want on a Marshall-style amp but there's just something about the sound of a Friedman that doesn't exactly gel with me. They're somehow both polite/refined/polished sounding, and yet dark and foreboding. This makes them both well-suited for modern music and yet not aggressive in the way that I think of aggressive at the same time. I'll try to get this one to rehearsal and check it out with the full band soon.
I'm having fun butchering Mastodon for now, though! It's very easy to play and smears notes together nicely, while maintaining clarity at the same time.
