Sound — 8
I'm using a Tanglewood strat copy through this and it sounds great, with the modelling you can get very precise tones. The clean tones are clean at all sound levels (even though you can't get it very loud on clean), the hi gain distortion is a 'not over the top' distortion sound which is what I like while the 'hot' is very distorted. Now the modelling, With this you can choose what amp you want it sound like, there is Californian (a great crisp sound), British (a more 'rock' sound), Tweed (quite bassy, I think it sounds like you've shut the amp in a cupboard and closed the door). The next set of 3 options is clean (you guessed it, a clean sound), Hi gain (an overdriven sound) and hot (A really overdriven sound) and the last is the type of speaker you want it to sound like there's U. S (sounds like a 2 x 12" open-back speaker), U. K (sounds much like the U. S if I'm honest but a tiny bit more bassy) and flat (sounds like UK but quieter).
Overall Impression — 8
If this were lost or stolen I would buy it again. It is a very versatile amp which can give alot of different sounds and for 70 it's great value for money! I had the choice of other amps as well but chose this because of the variety of sounds I could get from it.
Reliability & Durability — 7
This amp hasn't broken on me yet and looks like it can take a lot. I could depend on it at a gig but it may not be loud enough for a gig to be honest but I wouldn't need backup.

This 15w amp has analogue modelling which can give you '27 classic tones', headphone jack and a CD input jack. I play mainly rock, and this amp fits it pretty well. You can get some good tones using the modelling (I'll explain this later), it has a lovely clean tone and can create some quite godd distortion. The 8" sspeaker can really throw out some loud sounds, I use this amp in my bedroom and I rarely turn the master volume above 1!
