Price paid: $ 900

Purchased from: Guitar Center

Sound — 10
The amp is loud. With 60 watts and 4-10 inch speakers it's a great deal for the price. The amp has three channels and has a ton of distortion. I play Randy Rhoads with distortion on 5 and it goes up to 12.

Overall Impression — 10
I love this amp. I can play any style of music, but it has a special voice for blue; especially with a Les Paul. If something happened I would buy this amp again. It is a great amp for having 4-10 inch speakers, 60 watts, all tube, spring reverb, and an effects loop and only $900

Reliability & Durability — 10
The amp is loud enough for most gigs and very reliable and durable within 60 pounds.

Features — 10
The amp is very versatile with great cleans and tons of distortion. It is all tube, has an effects loop, spring reverb, and 4-10 inch speakers. It also has recording features and a cabinet output. The only thing it doesn't have is a headphone jack.

    I bought the 410 for 350$ like brand new , with the cover and the foot pedal. I don't really like the drive channel that much . I use the clean channel and a pedal in front of it for distortion. I plug a 12" floor monit0r in the aux. out and it seems to round off the sound quite nicely. I never thought of plugging in my 412 cab into it. Imma have to try it.

    I got one of these little fire breathing beasts for $300 used...it has a broken #1 input jack and did not come with the footswitch, but other than that it's in great shape. VERY loud, huge clean tone, and the drive/more drive channel isn't as bad as everyone's making it out to be...especially since the recommended fix for the gritty tone of this ALL TUBE AMP (in fairness, the rectifier *is* solid state) is to put a solid state drive pedal in front of it for more "tube like" drive...am I the only one who sees the bass ackwardness of this? Not that I feel it's necessary, but I plan on getting a 12AX7 powered Behringer Vintage Tube Monster OD pedal to get that extra push...it'd be nice to have a tube driven top end boost, and it has 3 way EQ for more tonal flexibility...kinda like an additional channel on this 2 1/2 channel tube beast...you can't beat that natural tube grind, especially for $60! Back to the amp...great reverb, killer cleans (4x10 sparkle for days), nice drive, the more drive is a bit gritty but still very usable...not a metal amp by any stretch, but it's an overall great amp (especially for what I paid for it)..can't wait to see how it sounds with a 2x12 extention cab!
