    I mostly used the PS2 for the FX loop for my H9 pedal. I found it pretty transparent.

    The loop is a huge plus with the PS2, and it is transparent. Its a great unit. Miss it already.

    Congrats on a great amp! I’ve had my 50W head since they were first made available and still love it.

    This year mine will have been here for six years. I’ve never kept an amp this long since I was in college. Like Steve, I’ve had a plethora of high end amps; this has turned out to be my main “voice”.

    “When were you in college, Les?”

    CONGRATULATIONS!!! Wish I had never sold mine, try it in DA mode with treble gain mids and bass all at 2/3, treble and presence at 1/3 and bass gain at about a 1/4, best blues tone ever!!!

    Thanks Emtcustom24 . There is all kinds of great tones in the HXDA. I'm the happiest I've been with an amp in a long time. A DGT or Les Paul is just unbelievably good. I usually live in the DA side but some material calls for the HX. I alternate some of the HXDA switches depending on what I'm going after. If I use it for clean tones I use the HX side with one switch DA and the bass gain almost off. I can actually grab a tele add some slap back and compression and pull off killer Bakerersfield tones or anything up from there. It sounds great on clean ballad stuff as (another requirement of mine) and kills on rock ballads. Great amp!
