I have to carry most amps at the full extension of my arm: can't lift them one-armed for long. Have to lean over to carry the Variety. Also bear in mind the impressions are from my particular point of view (or hearing), describing how they respond to the way I play. I have used them both at jamming/gig volume, but I'm still more of a clean than cranked player. A different player, using his characteristic settings, might give a different report on them.
