      Versatile, durable, portable, affordable. It has an 8″ speaker. Useful too. Slight hum. It’s not a Princeton Reverb nor cost$1k. 8″ speaker. I have put about 15 hours a week on my XV for the last 5 or 6 years and has never needed service of any sort. I’ve never dropped it or leaved it anywhere I wouldn’t leave an animal. Never played through it during a power outage or a CME.. so so far so good. Of my 6 small combos, it gets the majority of my awesomeness. In fact.. Enough writing. My amp is jealous of the lap-top and demands my immediate attention, to which I cannot deny.

      Amen to that! I’ve had mine since 2008 and it’s still going strong! Moved up to a Eminence H820 speaker and a Classic Tone output transformer to give me 4 AND 8 ohm options. Studio and small gig ready. Uh, very small gig.
