Excellent amp with infinite effects and tonal tweaks
Marc78, 14.05.2020
I use this amp at home, so sometimes at high volume and sometimes low volume. I initially wanted to stick with a tube amp, but I was concerned with the necessary high playing volume to get the best out of a tube amp.

I chose the Artist version essentially for its front panel access. The top panel would have been difficult to access when practising.

Pros:
+ Front panel
+ Possibility to play at any volumes without sacrificing tone
+ Endless possibilities
+ Ability to nail your tones and effects and store it in 8 memory channels so you can be consistent with your playing tones
+ If 8 channels isn't enough, you can store them in your computer in limitless patches
+ So glad Boss didn't try to emulate famous amps in the dials
+ Price! With that amount of possibilities.

Cons:
- Not the prettiest amp around, but simple enough
- Too many adjustments to choose from. This is a pro and a con. On the negative side, you will either ever use only 10% of the amp's capabilities or you will spend your life fiddling with the adjustments as opposed to making the best out of a particular amp tone.
