I have taken a few months to learn the ins and outs of the Amp 1 and love it. I have been able to get everything I need with this amp and have had zero issues. It is loud, clear and easy to operate. My only nit is with the voicing controls on the side, they are a little too small and close together so manipulating them can be a bit of a challenge. Other than that I have zero complaints with this amp and highly recommend it. I do have a friend who purchased one that had issues so I suspect the negative review on this page may be from someone who, sadly, purchased and Amp 1 that had a flaw from the factory. He should have returned it for a replacement. I have had none of the issues noted in the negative review.

Just got this a week ago. I can’t believe how great the tones are from this beast. Playing it through a 2x12 with G12-65s. I highly recommend it to those who can get over the image challenge of not have a traditional head sitting on your cabinet. Sometimes good things DO come in small packages. Probably gonna keep this forever.

I don't know what the fellow above is talking about with the tone being muffled but my amp1 mercury edition rocks. I had the original version of the amp 1 and while I liked it there were things that I did not like about it. This version is miles above the original version. The channels blend well and you can go from a nice overdriven tone to the classic which adds a bit more gain then to the modern which gains it up a bit further. On the original amp 1, I hated the vintage channel, on this version it is so much better, I could stay on the vintage channel all night and with a boost for leads its great. Even in the store where I purchased it, employees kept coming over saying how good it sounded and were very surprised out of the tones from this unit. If you want Marshall tones and do not want to carry a heavy amp you don't have to now ! Honestly this unit sounds so good its a no brainer. I have mine paired with a H and k 2 12 cab sounds great.

I was super excited to have a small portable Tube Amp with me instead of having to Carry one to the shows. I purchased the Amp 1 along with the HX Effects unit. Thinking I will have an endless pedal board and amazing Tube Tone. WRONG!!!!! The only usable tone out of the AMP 1 is the Clean. The Vintage, Classic and Modern tones out of the Amp 1 are Horrible and MUDDY! No separation in the notes. Just one Mess of DARK/MUFFLED distortion. I tried endlessly to try and dial in nice tone but it seems impossible to get something that sounds great in the crunch or distortion channels. Perhaps something is wrong with the Tube? Perhaps I have a Dud? Not too sure. But I tried for about 3-4 hours to get some usable tones out of it and only nice tone I found was on the clean channel. Don't waste your money on this product. It sounds bad, and its way way way overpriced for what you get in it.
