Excellent sound. A couple of my mates have Marshall 25 watt Mark 2 bass amps and while they sound good this amp is f--king phenomenal. It has a presence that the marshal amps lack.

I don't think I could live without it now. If it were stolen I would hunt down the bastard and kill him slowly, or go and get a 100 watt Cube.

Reliability & Durability — 10
Haven't had it long but it is built like a brick shithouse. I cannot imagine it going wrong for any reason other than it was from the top of the eiffel tower. And then it would probably still work.

The t-wah is good for when you want a funky sound or just pissing around. Flanger and chorus are good sometimes. I never really liked reverb but it does sound good on this amp and the delay is brilliant. The only thing that would make this amp better would be an overdrive effect. You can get an overdriven sound if you wack up the gain to full but it just isnt as good as a pedal.
