Sound — 10
This amp is very versitle, I can get all types of sound from it. I play with an ESP M that I upgraded with a KH-21 pickup set, and this thing screams. The harmonics (natural and pitched) are amazing, there is brilliant sustain, and the clean sounds pretty good, it rivals most fenders' clean. Great quality sound overall, and for the price you can't beat it.
Overall Impression — 9
For only $200 you can't beat it, you can barely get small Fender and Marshall for the price, and what your would get would be solid state, not tube. I play some jazz and blues, some Spanish style, but mostly rock and metal, and this amp can do it all, just play around with the EQ, and you will find some settings. Another point is that setting are easy to find with this amp, some Messas take a while to find a setting, then when you do sometimes you realize that you are not too fond of it. Overall, this amp is great you can't beat the price, it is loud, and sound quality is good.
Reliability & Durability — 9
Well, I have had the amp for over a year, and it is still screaming. I have had no problems so far and it still sounds great, soon I will need to replace the tubes, but I'm sure sam ash will be cool, but even if the amp only lasts for three years it is still a great investment, you can barely get a 20 watt solid state amp from Fender or Marshall for $200, so I think the amp is worth your while.

This is a 60watt tube amp (tube pre-amp), and is a cheap alternative to Messa, Marshall, and Fender. It has two channels; clean, with a master volume, gain, bass, and treble controls, and an overdrive, with a master volume, gain, bass, middle, and treb controls, and it has a spring reverb. For only $200 you cant beat it.
