Moving away from tube amps. Need power amp help.

With the "sweep" controls you can pretty much target whatever mid frequency you want to hear more of.

There's just a shitload of ways you can make it sound awesome. I've never run VST effects with it, or used a dirt box with it (because that would be fucking redundant as hell, considering the gain available). I see no reason why it wouldn't take either one just fine.

I run it into the FX return on my Blackstar HT-20. It has EL34s. I've run it into the amp sim app I have too with good results, for what I was using.

I keep hearing that the lower gain tones on it can still be a little raspy and fizz a little. I plan on using my many dirt pedals for low gain, into the clean. The OCD will probably cover that alone.
I hear Mexico is nice this time of year.
