Price paid: $ 75

Purchased from: Jensen's Guitar

Sound: The clean channel is a little raspy and gritty but im pounding too hard on my bass to notice that much. The noisiness does badly affect harmonics and pops on my bass though. They sound horrible. // 4

Reliability & Durability: As I said, my amp has a huge hole in the front of it and it works like it did when I bought it. Since this is just my practice amp, it's done fine. No break downs or major problems. // 8

Overall Impression: This amp is a fine practice amp and I prefer practicing on the full 15 watts then on my 100W combo. I wish it had an overdrive option to it, that would sound awesome on a bass. Overall good practice amp. // 8
