It`s a fun little toy, and I have used it when needing an extremely small sound. Cool for intros etc....
It can also drive a 4x12" cab, sounds pretty cool....

I've used these alot. Good for intro's. It was used alot on the Injected record(Island). You can actually lay these over your normal heavy guitars for a really "cutty" sound.

I like the marshall mini-stack...it's similar, but gives you control over volume and eq.

I've got a Smokey and it gets used from time to time. Mostly solos, intros, and background ear-candy stuff. The last time it got used was with a Strat and an Ebow > Smokey with a Baby Bottle (same size as the speaker) into a Daking 52270 and an 1176 with about 20dB of gain reduction at 20:1. Oh yeah, we also used some tape slap from the Studer 1/4" half track. Pretty cool.

ZVEX is the ****!

The smokies can be modded (at the factory) to accept balanced signals. Yes very cool.
