I own the non X version. Great all tube amp(which looks like has been discussed thoroughly). Runs EL84s. I run it through a matching 1X12 made in the same red/black tolex design with bloodwood. Speaker is a custom voiced V30 style speaker. The sound is nice and tight. Does cleans and blues very well on channel one. Channel two has two gain stages, low and high. I would say classic rock to 90s metal. If Djent is your thing, this isn't the amp for you. I play plenty of Lamb of God, Alice in Chains, etc through it with no problem. Paid $499 for mine new, so this is a decent deal. New X model supposedly has more gain....never thought mine was lacking...

Has anyone actually used this amp themselves or demoed it personally? I've found plenty of demos on youtube, but curios as to what people thought of it personally. Also, has anyone tried using a bass with this, how's the over all sound and tone if someone decides to plug in a bass and jam?

Sounds pretty awful if you ask me.. Everything is muddy, no tone definition(separation), overall a pretty bad sound. Others might disagree, that's the beauty of music. But I'll keep my money and look for something else.

Would be awesome to also have a matching speaker cabinet as an option.

This isn't all-tube. I haven't tried to find the schem for the loop(s), but there are no rectifier tubes for the power, so this is not all tube. Also, the gain in that Reverb.com demo doesn't sound right for an all-tube signal path. Go look up a 5E3 for a true all-tube design. I'd bet a dollar there's sand in those loops, tho.
That said, this looks like an interesting alternative to something similar from China or Korea.

Yeah, that looks like a nice take on a Champ copy. I kind of wish they had a voicing switch for when it's turned up, though. A single ended 6V6 can be made to sound better than that when broken up. The tough part is getting good tones for both cleans and overdrive when there are so few components to voice the amp with only two signal chain tubes.

I did not read any marketing language, everything I said was accurate . As to the reason they used them to begin with, you may be right, I did not look up the history, but the end result was an amp that is prized for the exact reasons I mentioned and I do happen to know that the evolution of the twin reverb was always for a loud clean signal that did not break up until you turned it up very very loud. Perhaps I should have said "Clean" headroom to appease the semantic gods. And by the way, both of your name dropped amp designers talk in length about tube rectifier sag, the compression and the loss of headroom, and how that actually defines the great amps that used them and also the ones that use diodes instead. In fact I bet there are a lot of metal players that prefer a solid state over a tube amp for precisely this reason. Most of them get their tone through pedals that push amps with huge clean overhead volume that does not sag. And that amp does look pretty nice.. Hand wired means you can use your books to easily mod it :) Its a one trick pony for sure, but its the one trick I want to look pretty in my living room when I just want to have some fun on my guitar.

Amp heads don't use wood to generate tone. You can put an amp in a pillowcase and it'll sound the same as one in stainless steel. You can argue that cabinets could be affected by the wood (most are made of plywood) but amp heads with tone wood is just asinine.
Too much marketing gobbledygook aimed at people who don't know any better.

Tonewood just has a very specific meaning that isn't relevant to an amplifier. You could also say "exotic" or a number of other descriptors, but tonewood is talking specifically about the contribution to the sound of a stringed instruments. And I think most people view tonewoods in speaker cabinets as a gimmick more than useful contributor to the sound.
Regardless, looks like a handy little amp, and we're off in semantics land :)

Yay to the semantics because you are right, but..the point is that no one claimed it affects the sound and when it comes to speaker cabinets for musical instruments like guitars, its all subjective when the amp is distorting this much. You are looking for variations, not replication. If guitar players wanted speakers that replicated the amp there would not be such a large aftermarket speaker and speaker cabinet industry for instrument amps. This aint HiFi, its rock and roll. especially with Panama Guitar amps from what I have learned today. Clean is not their thing.
