Sound — 7
I am using it with a Squier Bullet and a Vintage Metal Axxe Reaper, and the clean sounds from the 57 deluxe and the Twin Reverb are crystal clear. As for the distortion models, you won't get anything that heavy and the metal 2000 setting just gives alot of buzz. For this reason I'm giving it a 7.
Overall Impression — 8
I play anything from Guns 'n' Roses to Metallica and it can just about squeeze enough distortion to play them. To solve the problem of the heavy distortion I am getting an Electro-Harmonix metal muff. I also really like the noise gate that is built in the Fender fuse software.
Reliability & Durability — 9
It is made from wood and is covered with a plastic. It is really well made. This thing is as solid as a rock. I've dropped it lots of times and it still looks brand new. I reckon this thing could withstand a nuculear blast. I think you could easily gig with it in smaller places, although my parents tell me to turn it down when I have the volume on 3 :).
Features — 8
This amp has 8 different models ranging from 57' Deluxe to Metal 2000. It has a modulation knob, aswell as a delay/reverb knob. The best bit about this amp is the USB connectivity allowing you to share other user's presets. It also lets you create your own.
