After getting tired with his Marshall, my son asked me for a hotwatt. Oh, he is absolutely in love with it! And to think that it's cheaper than the one he had. I have also tried it and though, I am not good at it, I was amazed with its ability to mix and match effects. It sounded pretty good and even my husband is now asking for this. His birthday is coming up, so I'm thinking of getting another one for him.
