Overall Impression — 10
Mostly I'm into calssic rock and its a pretty good match because of all the distortions and delays. I've been playing for about 7 years now and I've never seen a little practice amp like it! After comparing it to alot of other amps with built in effects this won by a landslide because of pricing and sound. If it ever was stolen I would buy another one in a heartbeat!
