Sound — 8
I'm playing a crappy Ashton AB2 through it at the moment, as I'm in between guitars, but even on this it sounds fastastic. Seems to suit every style I play (rock, jazz, classical, slap, funk) easy enough, and the EQ helps a lot with the sound. Yet to distort the clean channel, so it seems pretty good.
Overall Impression — 9
This amp seems to be a pretty damn good match for my styles. I've only been playing a year and a half, but it still seems pretty versatile. If it WAS stolen, I'd definately buy another. The EQ is damn handy. I had to chose between this, or a Behringer BX600. I chose this. not just because of the 15 watt advantage, but due to the strength and vesatility. No other amp I looked at had an external speaker jack. Only thing I wish it had, like I said before, is another input. But the newer models have two inputs anyway, so problem solved.
Reliability & Durability — 9
This thing seems to be strong enough to withstand a bomb blast. Sturdy as hell. I've used it at gigs without a backup, and I will everytime, (I don't have a backup, but I don't feel like I need one). Speaker cage, strong outer case, everything it needs to be durable.
Features — 8
I got this amp about a month ago, but it was made in 2002. IT has all the normal features, pass/active Switch, bright boost, EQ equalizer, effects loop and DDT speaker protection. Handy, I guess. 75 Watts, so loud enough for a small gig or club, but it has an external speaker jack if you want a boost. Also has a Low Z lineout, which I've never touched. This thing has plenty enough features for me, though I do wish it had more than one input.
