I just bought the above from 179westwood29 (Andy) of this parish hoping it would be useful for guitar as well as bass.
Used it for guitar for practice and a gig last week (my guitarist doesn't own a giggable amp!) and he was delighted th the sound, and I have to say it is rather nice. It's nicely luggable too in its little fur lined bag, though the cab with the EV speaker made up for it, weight-wise.
The eq is subtle and interactive, as simple old valve designs often are and will take some getting used to after using eqs where each control actually does what you think it is going to do!
Will try using it for bass next practice, but suspect it might come up a bit short on volume, even in my tiny room.
