This head flat-out delivers. I play primarily a MIA Fender P/J, through either a pair of Aguilar GS112 or a S410. As with other Eden gear, the eq controls are very sensitive - a couple of clicks goes a long way. My favorite feature is the semi-parametric eq, allowing me to dial in the mids so I can get burp, growl or thump - a very versatile knob. I don't dig a scooped sound, so I don't use the enhance, but it works effectively. The edge knob allows the user to dial in a bit of tubey bloom, but as much gain as possible before clipping must be dialed in to get this effect, which I really like. Overall, a very warm sound for a solid state amp.This head can get loud. My pair of Aggie 8 ohm 12's draw about 475 watts, which kept up fine with a loud drummer and a guitarist playing through two 4x10 cabs pushed by a Peavey 5150 tube head. My 8 ohm 4x10 can also get loud solo. I've played all three cabs at once occasionally (when nobody else is home), making about 600 watts @ 2.6 ohms - stupid loud. I believe the full 650 watts at 2 ohms will be powerful enough for most applications.A couple of minor quibbles - first, this head doesn't weigh anywhere close to 18 pounds - it's quite a bit more. A Gator rack bag with handles will help with making the head more manageable. Also, the fan will come on fairly quickly @ 4 ohms if you're playing with any real volume. The fan is fairly loud - no problem for jams, but probably would be for recording. Finally, the silver writing on the sky blue chassis for the amp settings is a little difficult to read in dim lighting. None of these issues make me regret buying this amp.I've owned this head for about a year and a half with zero problems. For the price, I believe this amp delivers as much bang-for-the-buck as anything else out there. If you're shopping for a head, it's definitely worth a listen.
