Even at home volume levels, you can hear everything this amp is about without getting complaints. This also makes it an incredible recording amp. meaning you don't have to push your mics to there limits. The best rock tones came from small amps and this solidifies that's still true.

There is a beautiful sounding reverb built into the Lionheart that can range from subtle room and space style effects to over the top 'swampy' and 'washed-out' reverbs of 'My Bloody Valentine'.
