Sound — 8
I have some kind of Yamaha, a ERG121 I think. it's not that great of a guitar, and it still sonds awesome thanks to this amp. Like I said, it can get a lot of the sounds for rock music, or just about any other style. The distortion is awesme! The solo is great for soloing or some nice crunchy ryhthm parts. The reverb, however, does not do too much to the sound.

Overall Impression — 9
This matches all of my music. It is great! I have been palkying for a year and have never found an amp as near as good as this in this price range! I have tried many different amps, but didn't find a thing. If it were stolen, I would eventually buy it again. I truly do reccomend getting it!

Reliability & Durability — 7
I would use it maybe in a gym, nothing bigger, it isnt really that loud. It has not broken on me yet. I play it about 2 hours a day, haven't had one problem with it, and I have only had it for a few months, but it is very solid so. You probably won't need a backup amp when perfroming live, but anything can happen so you could bring an extra just in case.

This amp was made a few years ago I think. It is a very solid amp! It's had a couple bangs, and nothing is wrong at all, not even a scratch on it! It has three channels. Clean, rhythm, and solo. All are great, but the solo has I little bit of fuzz. No big deal. This amp Can definitely go very loud! I play just about any style of rock music, and I can get a lot of the sound shtat I want!

    I'm sorry but if that was happening to me i wouldn't fix it that's awesome. I bet that amp is louder than your stereo so crank that thing up and listen to the radio

    does this amp actually have a headphone jack? if so where is it? i got this amp but cant seem to find it anywhere alothough the description at the top says it does contain one. *confusion*

    You must have an older model. Mine is older, and it dosen't have a headphone jack. Great rehearsal amp, squeals like a stuck pig past 7 though.

    Ive had this amp for about 4 years and it is still as good as new. I play with an Epiphone Les Paul Studio and it sounds great.
