Sound — 8
A great practice amp for all music types. It sounds great using a clean overdrive or a heavy crunch for metal. If you use the Fender Fuse software you can create your own unique sound for what you want. My favourite is the 80s and 90s metal sound and this amp deffinately pulls it off. For only a 20watt speaker, it gets surprisingly loud and still keeps it clean.

Overall Impression — 8
For an affordable reliable amp this one is a good choice. However Fender has a better selection of mustang amps. This is just one that I've used. A better choice is the Mustang V412 head with the matching cabinet. But if your looking for great sound at home at a fair price this amp is definitely an option.

Reliability & Durability — 7
One of the downsides is the built in tuner. I've used different guitars on it and it doesn't pick up the sound very easily when tuning. Its also only good for home practice, although its got good sound its still not loud enough to pull off a show at a bar.
