I've been playing my guitar for 32 years and had the pleasure of being in 2 national acts from Canada. I purchased a used YCV40 to use at my smaller club and casino gigs a few years back and constantly asked what amp im using buy fellow musicians.
I can't tell you how happy I am to play through this thing every night. It inspires me to perform better. I say this to up and comers when looking for an amp. Find something you really can feel every night and it will make you play better. It is an integral part of a pro musicians arsenal.
In the hands of a pro this amp can turn heads no matter where and in what situation.
