That was a great little amp, wasn't it bluesyrat?
I bought mine off of a buddy of mine who didn't use it for $150....
Believe I bought it within the same month as I bought the Quest Atak V, and I used the both of them together on many gigs in the first 2 years of performing at bar gigs...
I remember the overdrive being a little raw and on the ratty side, but it was still pretty sweet for George Thorogood style rock and roll and the clean channel with a my tele plugged in was probably the cleanest little sound I'd ever heard up to that point.
I wish I had that little amp back today. I bet it would sound pretty sweet with a good clean tone and my BOSS ME50 stompboard plugged into it...that and a early '00's Peavey Transtube Studio Pro 112 and you've got two of the toughest, most portable little workhorse amps you could ever hope to have!
