Sound — 7
I am using a Washburn X10 guitar and I usually play jazz with this amp and it doesn't give me the results I want for jazz, but it's fine. When I play with a lot of volume, it seems like it's on the crunch setting because it makes it fuzzy. The sound is okay for most guitar playing.
Overall Impression — 7
I usually play jazz and this amp fits it well but there are sometimes where I wish the sound was a little bit "softer". I will probably upgrade to a 30 watt amp or something soon but for now, this amp is fine. I got this amp along with my first guitar, a Washburn X10, in a beginner's package. I really didn't know anything about guitars then so I really didn't care. Overall this amp is good for a beginner Who is just playing around in their home.
Reliability & Durability — 9
I never use this amp for playing outside of my house, but it has never broken down. I have carried it throughout my house to listen to different environments and it has never busted anything. Although, sometimes I'll move it and it will sound like a spring broke.

This 15 Watt amp is definitely a beginner's amplifier. I got this amp about three years ago in a beginner's package with a guitar. This amp has a clean setting and a "crunch" setting. It has a headphone jack, a line in jack, three equalizer knobs (Bass, Mid, Treble) and a reverb setting. The reverb isn't too great, but it is good for a beginning amplifier. I just use this amp at home and it is good for just playing around.
