This amp is definitely for metal and hard rock players. The high gain channel ooffers almost excessive amounts of crunch and distortion. But for clear overdrive, it is lacking. It also fails the make the grade for other musical styles. The tweed model on high gain is the smoothest setting and is the only setting that isnt overly distorted. But none-the-less, its very fuzzy and distorted at high volumes.
Overall Impression — 7
A very disapointing amplifier since it offers very little musical style variety. This is soely for high distortion playing.
Reliability & Durability — 9
The back is open like most other amps and the wiring can come loose and requires soldering if it is abused. Otherwise it's a rather sturdy amplifier. It would definitely hold itself at a gig.

This is a dual channel amp with Jensen speakers. It include 3 modes and 3 models (British, US, Tweed, High Gain and Hot). It also includes a tuner and built-in effects processing, which wasn't too impressive and offers little variety. It does come with a channel switching and effects on/off footswitch. It lacked solid amp modeling options and the effects processors was a waste to be put into this amp. The amp could easily handle a small scale gig like at an auditorium.
