Sound — 8
I run an Epiphone Special II. It has a little buzz but not much more then anything else I've heard. It makes nice sound. Not as heavy of a bass sound as it can get out of the highs tho. It is very clean and very distorted.

Overall Impression — 8
Overall it's a great beginners amp. I've been playing a couple years and I love it. I plan on moving up to a Line 6 sometime soon. When moneys not tight. I'd buy something else if it was stolen just because I already plan on updating anyways. I love it, I have no reason to hate it.

I can depend on it. I drop it kick it throw shit in it to carry around. It's a flippin tank.

It's a relatively new amp. I love it. It may not be a real nice line X amp. But it's awesome. It's loud as s--t and it works perfect. The tone is great. One channel, headphone jack, reverb. The basics. It has plenty of power for me. I've played live with it a few times and nobody complained about it being to quiet.

    Dude...Line 6 aint bad...try them out...try Line 6's flextone or Spider III...cool amps
    yea..Line's arent bad at all. But some people dont like them because theyre made in China and they're digital. I had one and I loved it.
    yeah I got this little beast for practice almost like a decade back and I dig it. Haven't seen 'em in awhile tho... And dude -line 6 are fine... after all it's what you do with it. I play lead w/ a mustang which I hear's not such a great plan cuz o the muddy tones -but after a bit of tweaking with the balance, gain and some reverb -sounds fine.
