Sound — 10
I play three types of guitar from a metal monster Schecter to a made for blues Vintage Strat. I play all types of music, whatever I am in the mood for. This amp does it all. In my mind its the best amp I ever had. Its sound is to die for, from the lovely cleans to the buttery smooth distortion to the thundering metal sounds. Total tonal nirvana.
Overall Impression — 10
I love this amp over a Vox AC30, a Mesa Boogies Rectifier and a Marshall Class 5. The only other amp I have played that I love equally is the Ibanez Tube screamer. For the money there is nothing on this planet or the next that touches it.
Reliability & Durability — 10
Never broken down. Its a sturdy case. I bought it online and the box looked like an elephant had done a dance on it. The amp had a few dents but it plays perfectly and has ever since.
Features — 10
Single channel, distortion, three channel EQ, Reverb, on off switch, what more do you need. Made in 2010. Totally versatile. One of the nicest sounds for for rock, blues, clean, whatever you throw at it. I wish it had an internal loop and a second channel then it would be perfect. The best tube amp for the money, even twice or thrice the money. If it cost me $500 it would get an 8. At the price I paid its a solid 10.
