It sounds great with my strat, tele, les paul and es-339. The reverb and tremolo are excellent. It has a great clean sound that is a perfect platform for pedals and responds very smoothly to my fulltone Plimsoul. It is also great with delay and ambient reverb. It was more than able to keep up with our drummer at practice.
I have not had any issues with rattling, reverb or sound.
I purchased this amp on Amazon, from a seller named ''ElectricGuitar'', which is an excellent seller by the way, I highly recommend it. So I purchased this amp in ''Used - Like New'' / ''Non factory sealed'' condition, for an incredible price of $899.95, so $200 less than the brand new price. I have to tell you, mine came brand new, not a scratch or dent, also came in a Fender box perfectly packed, with the 2 button foot switch, the original user manual, the Jensen speaker, Fender 5 year warranty and Groove Tubes stickers or logos and a Fender bumper sticker. I received the amp on Friday Sept, the 4th, 2015. Of course I have not left the darn thing alone ever since I got it. So my first impressions of the amp until today Sept 08, have been great. I really like the sound and tone that I am getting from the amp stock, as it is. I have tried it at different volume levels from bedroom levels, which sounds so good and sparkling and also at meaner louder cranked up volumes and also sounds great and warm, as you get those crunchy tube saturated compressed sounds. The Jensen C12K stock speaker is not yet broken in and still it is not ''ice peaky'' or ''shrill'' on the treble or high frequency tones at all. Honestly I don't how some people say this about this speaker and about the amp as a whole, maybe their amps did not came up set properly from factory. Mine is excellent, I don't even need or bother to take the amp to my expert guitar& tech for re bias, because it sounds so good as it is, so it would be pointless. My DRRI came stock with Groove Tubes, but they are not the ones that have the ''ElectroHarmonix'' or ''Sovtek'' writtings or other brand on the tube along with the GrooveTubes writings. This one only say GrooveTubes. A lot of people complained that the stock GrooveTubes are junk and sound bad, well I don't know about that but these ones sound super nice and warm! I plug in the cd player to the amp's input, using a RCA (Female) to 1/4 TRS (Male), to leave it playing music at louder volumes for around 30 minutes to and hour a day. Some times that I have been home alone I cranked it up with the Cd player plug in to it and you can see when it's darker, that the tubes are ''cooking'' like they should. I think the CD player thing is a good way of testing the tubes and of helping the speaker break in period. The CD player is stronger signal than the guitar, so if play a cd with wav files, not mp3's, in it, it is a stronger signal and has plenty of gain, so you can see the speaker and the tubes working hard as I pound it with LOUD music. It sounds extremely loud even at 2.5 on the DRRI volume knob, so I can only do this for no longer than an hour, since even if it is only me at home, I go crazy with the extreme loudness, but it's been a good bench test for the tubes and helps loosen up the speaker.
I will update after a month from now. So far I am extremely pleased with the sound of the amp. Like I said before I would never call the sound of this amp stock, as it is right out of the box, ''harsh'' ''shrill'' ''too bright'' ''ear piercing'' or ''ice peaky'', like other people have said. Of course if you use your Treble knob, you can make it bright sounding, but that happens with any other amp and speaker type. About the bass response, I think it is a well defined low end and low mid response, with it never being boomey or too much bass. The mid frequencies definition is perfect as it is in my opinion, definitely no need for that ''lost mid knob control'', it is set perfectly as it is hard wired. I love this amp, I like it more and more every time I play it. Also so far it has taken the few pedals that I have, in an excellent way, especially on the Vibrato channel. I will update in one month.
Takes pedals very well, especially mid-heavy, tube screamer type overdrives. Can almost get a cranked Marshall sound with the right pedal (Barber Direct Drive in my case). Loud enough for small gigs, can be mic'd for anything bigger and light enough to avoid back strain. The "vibrato" (really tremolo but whatever) is neat but of limited use for me anyway; if you need that sound it's a good one. Fantastic reverb of course and great clean. Just a great, great base sound to start from.
It's not perfect of course; it would be nice to be able to get an all tube amp at this price point with channel switching (Hot Rods don't count since they aren't really an all tube amp and their drive channel is terrible anyway). The components are supposedly low quality; I haven't experienced this yet but I have no reason to doubt that the tubes are cheap; it sounds good enough for now and I'll deal with that when the tubes need replacement. Supposedly a crap speaker; again, good enough for now. It's easy to overdo the treble on the vibrato channel and have a sound that is like a dental drill to the temple. This is due to a bright cap on the volume control for this channel; there is a relatively easy mod for this (google it) or you can, you know, use the eq controls that come with the amp.
But overall, a pretty great and versatile amp. Probably too "loose" for metal, but I am able to cover a wide variety of sounds with it and even get a passable Smashing Pumpkins sound with a Big Muff in front.
