Sound — 10
I use this with a combination of single coils and humbucker pickups and get a great sound every time. This amp was made for distortion, it has a wide range of different distortion tones, but don't get me won't the clean channel kicks ass to, and never breaks up even at 10. The only problem I had was blowing the speakers after one month of having the amp. But all is well and fixed now.

Overall Impression — 10
This amp is perfect for anybody just starting out, especially for the price. If I went to the store and this amp was $400 I still would buy it. The only thing I wish it had was a little bit higher quallity speakers, but for $300, fuck beggers can't be choosers! I recommend this amp to anybody needing gig like volumes on a tigh budget, even if your not on a tight budget the buy this and save you money for a new guitar!

Reliability & Durability — 6
This amp is pretty reliable besides the small blown speaker problem. But if anything worse ever happens there is a 5 year warranty to cover my ass, so im not to worried about it. I'll give it a 3 hear because of the blown speakers.

Features — 8
This amp has three channels and has a spring reverb. As far as features are concerned this is it, but the ammount of power this has is amazing. I'll give it a four because of the lack of features but the quality of what it did have.
