I bought this amp on a whim, played out with it one time, then quit playing out. I've used it a couple of times for practice, the rest of the time it has sat in the case. As usual I had to experiment a bit to get a sound I liked, but I did. These amps are powerful, tiny, and very light weight. It comes with the gig bag, manual, power cord, and Speakon speaker cable. These have a lifetime warranty from AI. The last picture is the amp sitting on the 12" NEO speaker cab I used it with to show the size comparison. The price is $600 plus shipping($100 less than I paid for it). Here are the specs and description from Acoustic Image.
