Paired this amp with a closed-back, hand-made 2x12 cab with Celestion G12M Greenback speakers, and sounds amazing! From a brilliant, smooth, clean sound to the soaring drive you'd expect from a high end british amp, its is super versatile and perfect for a smaller venue or recording. I haven't played a lot of other amps of this quality, but I've played on a comparable Orange amp and a genuine vintage ac30, and this one was more versatile with equally powerful british voice, and very low noise. The birch wook also looks amazing.
