Sound — 5
I either play this with a Gibson Les Paul Studio, or a Gibson Les Paul Custom with EMG 81/85, as these are the guitars I keep at home. I play a bit of everything and this amp does alright. I don't expect to sound awesome because its a practise amp. I have a 5w Epiphone tube amp that I could use for practice but the Fender is more practical and does the trick at home.
Overall Impression — 6
Overall, I am happy with this amp. It does everything I want from it and doesn't f--k up ever. I've been playing for 8 years and been in bands for 4 years and my live amp is a Marshall Artist 3203 Head- 30w SS preamp Tube power, with a 1960A cab + effects etc. The Fender has no use outside of my house. Just remember its a practise amp. You CANNOT play guitar in a band with this amp(well you could but of course its gonna suck its not made for that).
Reliability & Durability — 8
Well I've had it for eight years, play it almost every day, it gets moved around a lot and gets stuff put on top of it. But it's still working. The nut that goes on the input jack fell off and I lost it a few months back but no biggie.
Features — 3
Ok before I start lets get this straight. This is a PRACTICE AMP. Too many people on here complain about it sucking compared to other bigger amps and the use of pedals. All the reviews above have told you the features so I don't need to. I've got no idea when mine was made but I've had it for 8 years as it was the first amp i owned. I only use this amp in my bedroom as a practise amp. You're better off not using the CD Input the sound quality sucks. Headphone jack too if your mums a bitch. The clean channel sounds weak, the gain channel is Ok, nothin special but not bad. No footswitch either.
