Got the head. The HYPE is real. Maganda tunog. Ang layo sa mga Line 6 at Blackstar SS amps. Juicy mids. Try it with a great 2x12 or 4x12 cab! It's loud. It sounds 90% like my Peavey 6505 Mini Head. Only this one has more body and volume.

And that 5 inch built in speaker!!! It sounds quite good. Now to try those SNEAKY AMPS inside this thing.

Best $275 I have spent.

Breakthrough

BOSS has always been about helping musicians make killer music.
But stability is overrated, and brand boredom is the kiss of death.
That’s why we’re completely revamping our game.
Never resting on our laurels or rehashing old ideas,
we’re pouring our insatiable musical curiosity and the expertise
we’ve honed since launching our first product in 1976 into
becoming a company that continuously creates innovative sounds.
All so that musicians can express themselves more freely
through that life-changing medium of music.
At BOSS, we don’t fear failure. We fear standing still. BREAKTHROUGH
We’re breaking through to recreate ourselves

I have the 50 W.

For the price, I didn't expect to be blown away. Besides, I was just looking for an able platform for my GT-1.

Got disappointed at first as I thought my pre-loved Fender Mustang I V2 sounded better. I expected this amp to be more pedal-friendly.  I just wanted to use it straight-up panel mode which the Mustang doesn't have and I'm not interested in the internal effects it offers as they are modelled from the GT-1 anyway. I almost regretted buying this as I thought the speakers sounded flat. The only consolation was the full-range acoustic channel that makes it a quite decent acoustic amp.

But after a couple of weeks, I realized that I only set it between 0.5 and 25 W settings as I didn't want to piss off my housemates because I knew it can get too loud. Yesterday, I set it to 50-watts and noodled away. Only then I felt the "bounce" I've experienced in Marshall JCM 600. It felt "tubey" and the clean tones are surprisingly great.

Now I can tell I was quite blown away with the analog feel of this SS amp. It sounds great and its damn loud!

I auditioned the Boss Katana 100 1x12 at Perfect Pitch today with a 2017 Fender Am. Spec. Strat. I noodled around with the clean and brown sound settings and I must admit that although it does sound great, somehow it is still not as satisfying as a tube amp.

It reminds me of the Pancit Canton analogy.

I LIKE PANSIT CANTON AS IT IS CHEAP AND SATISFYING BUT WILL NOT REFUSE PANSIT CANTON SERVED AT ANY FANCY SCMANCY PLACE AS LONG AS I CAN AFFORD IT.

pareho clang nakakabusog at masarap para sa akin,so the fuss about boutique gears and whatnots is not really that big deal to me.

if you can afford it thats fine,if not that is still ok just as long as you enjoy what you play.

The thing with the combos is that the speakers are not that good.For tube feels, you need to run the master high. But yeah, still not the real thing. Still better that the other tube emulating amps in that price range, though.
