Sound — 7
The cleans are pretty nice, not quite as good as a Twin/Deluxe/Super/etc. But nice. The OD is crap unless you're going for a real trashy 90s grunge type sound IMO. Very buzzy, muddy, etc. I use a Les Paul, SG and Strat with it. It suits me decently for my styles. I tend to stay around Jazz/Blues and use a Zendrive for my OD tones. It can be quite noisy sometimes; it's very prone to RF interference. The cleans distort around halfway up for me. It sounds much nicer than the OD channel but still not great. The distortion is definitely not for teh br00t4lz.
Overall Impression — 6
I play Jazz and Blues. It does the Jazz part pretty good. It doesn't have any other tones I really like. I've been playing ~6 years. I own a bunch of nice pedals, some boutique, some Vintage and some nice guitars. I wish I would have asked how the distortion sounded. I would buy something else if it got stolen. A Deluxe if I stayed Fender or something like a Boogie or Splawn otherwise.
Reliability & Durability — 3
I absolutely cannot depend on it. It's broken 3 times on me. Once the reverb stopped working, once it got stuck on the OD channel and once it just stopped working completely. I always try to borrow an amp if I have to gig because I can't trust this amp in a gigging situation.

I bought this back in 04 or 05. It's definitely not versatile at all. The amp is not versatile at all. If you want an amp for distortion, look elsewhere. It's got 3 channels, Clean, Drive and More Drive. FX loop is non buffered and sucks tone. I wish it had a real effects loop, a decent OD channel and a less sensitive volume pot. I never use the OD channel or reverb. I gig with it and practice with it.
