I use my Jackson RR24M through this amp. It has a single EMG-81. The amp can really do any sound you are looking for unless it is high gain metal. For that you will need an EQ pedal and a OD or distortion pedal. I use a MXR 10 Band EQ and Ibanez TS-9 Tube Screamer and I love the tone and the amount of distortion it produces. I was actually very surprised at how well this amp sounded. So far I am very happy that I choose it.
Overall Impression — 9
I play alot of metal, but also blues and rock. With my set up it does all those genres very well. I have been playing guitar for about 14 years and this is my first tube amp. Is there better out there? Yes. But not for the price paid. If you are looking for a low wattage tube combo amp this might be perfect for you. I would deff buy again if it were stolen. If it broke I would look somewhere else. My favorite features are prob the f/x loop and the ease of use that comes with this amp. You get a lot of options as far as creating your tone, but it is very easy to dial in a good tone.
Reliability & Durability — 8
Reliability. I know everyone has heard about Bugera's reliability issues. So far so good with this amp. Have yet to have a single hick-up with this thing. But I have only had it for a month or two now. So only time will tell. It is a very durable amp. Built solid and has some weight to it.

We have us a nice little 22 watt 112 all tube combo amp. It has 2 channels(clean & overdrive). It also has an f/x loop and a speaker ohm selection switch in the back if you want to run a cab off of it. It also has a switch to go from triode(half power) to pentode(full power)mode. As far as input goes there is a normal and bright. And you can tell the difference in the 2. On clean channel it has its own volume. Gain channel has its on volume and gain knob. They both share a low, mid, high, presence, reverb, and master volume. Oh, it also has a mid boost button, which comes in handy for certain sounds. It also came with a footswitch that changes the channel and turns on/off the reverb.
