Sound — 4
This amp doesn't really give you much choice as to how you want the guitar to sound and isn't very versatile, but I only used 2 settings (off and volume at max). Basically, this is an amp for you to begin with and get your ears used to being blown right out of your head.
Overall Impression — 7
I play literally everything out there. This amp works for my music styles, I guess, but it's not something you would want to buy if you like screwing with EQ, or like having a reverb/overdrive. My favourite feature on it would have to be how loud it goes, though. It almost got me kicked out of my basement apartment. Apparently I was dropping pictures 2 floors above me right off the wall, shaking things off shelves and just plain pissing the landlord off. Hate your parents? Get this amp.
Reliability & Durability — 7
This amp is very reliable in the sense that it will last a while. About as reliable as any other tube amp would be. Occasionally you will have to replace a tube if you are rough with it, so try not to be. However, if you take very good care of any tube amp, really, it will last just as long as you will.
Features — 4
No idea what year this amp was made in. Very basic amp, though. No fancy features. Just a volume knob and a Tone knob. Being a 15W tube amp, this amp is deathly loud. So I took it back and got the Traynor TTM30. I really do wish they could have integrated some EQ knobs and maybe an overdrive, but hey, you can't have everything. Well, you can, but that would make for one expensive amp.
