Sound — 8
I use this with my Peavey Grind 5 BXP bass. It is great for versatility. You can get the tone for slapping, or get it for a nice warm rumble. I find it great for almost any musical style. With the volume and treble EQ up it tends to make a slight static-type sound (like many amps) but it is no problem because as soon as you start playing you can't hear it at all. I only wish it could go a little louder, but it IS only 60 watts.
Overall Impression — 8
This amp works great with any type of music you play. I like the tone, quality, and the looks of this. It is great and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a semi-cheap amp for small gigs and shows. For the price range I think I made the right decision buying it.
Reliability & Durability — 10
This is the most durable amp I have owned. It has carpet padding all along the outside, as well as oversized corners to keep it safe if it falls. I would deffinately use this at a gig without a backup, though it would only be powerful enough for small shows.

This is a 60 watt Fender solid state amplifier. It has a 4-band EQ the makes it great for playing different tones and music styles. It has two seperate inputs for active or passive, as well as a push Switch for mid-scoop. There are "pre amp out" and "power amp in" inputs which I still have yet to try. There is also a headphone jack and an output jack for sound reinforcement. And of course, the little red light that flashes at the bottom when you play. My friends always have fun watching that.
