The amp does what I need it to do in many areas. I have had alot of Zz in the final turn I came back to what I started with. I had a Super Z for a while I shoulda kept...lol Depending on the speaker a 38 will handle about anything you need it to. I used it for acoustic, strat, LP, pedal steel, keyboards and bass. Did em all. Used everything from a Tonker to a Red Fang...personal fav in the combo 38 I had. I now have the head version NR.. use it with a 1-12..2-12 THD with Fangs...Z-4-10 stock.. The amp can do anything.
daveyk--you could get the update and I think you would be very happy. You could use the lo input on your 38 for home use. This cuts volume down quite a bit. With the update you would basically have a 18 and 38 in one package and for home and use the half power switch and lo input. Just a thought.
Thanks for the input! I'm definitely going to get the upgrade sometime next year!
