Sound — 9
I've got a Strat copy with single coil pickups, I like how it sounds with this amp, I've played in Marshall and Line 6 amps, and this amp sond like one of them or even better. I wished to have a lot of power and now I've got it! The crunch channel gives you a cool distortion, like '70s rock sound, if you want to perform an old rock bands or something like that, it's great! I use the crunch channel to play songs like: Smoke On The Water, Paranoid and I've Got The Fire.
Overall Impression — 9
I play heavy metal and this amp suits me perrfectly, I've been played for about 4 years, I have a strat copy, a RP80 and Metal Master DigiTech pedals. I wished to have a lot of power and now I've got it! If it was stolen probably I'd buy the same amp or maybe the next power model, it depends of my money, but definitively I'd buy this one.
Reliability & Durability — 9
I trust on it, it's built in wood, and appearently it's very solid, I take care of my gear, but sometimes stant on it, I kick it and hit it, and still sounds great and looks very well. I don't need a backup, this guy must be the backup for other amps.

This amp is great, it has a 12" Celestion speaker and the amplification is generated from a solid state circuit, I play heavy metal and it suits me perfectly, our reharshalls are always in reduced spaces (garages, living rooms, etc.) and I use the amp in small auditoriums, the sound fills every corner. The amp has two channels: clean and crunch, even it has an extra distortion which provides an awesome effect. The power cumplies with the 65 W paid. I didn't like the send FX and return FX inputs, I don't use them. I'd like to say that the clean channel is not very "clean" (there's some noise) as I wanted, but it's a little price for the solid state amplification provided that the most stuff I play contains a lot of distortion. If you play some kind of metal, it'd be a good choice.
