Sound — 8
I use a First Act ME-302 Telecaster Copy. I play quite a bit of rock so it suits me very well because the settings on it adapt to almost anything. It can get to pretty pretty loud and especially on insane. It has a wide variety of sounds like funk, blues, and so on. It can be pretty loud on clean if you set it right. The distortion can get you pretty far and with a pedal or two you can tap with ease.
Overall Impression — 7
It fits me pretty well when I'm playing rock. I've been playing for 3 years now so I think I know what I'm doing. I own some pedals and they blend real well with the amp. If anything happened to this amp yeah I probably would buy another one but maybe a newer version. The thing I like about this amp is that it will fit you whatever you play. I don't hate mostly anything about this amp because it's a perfect starter amp, plus it's loud! I chose this amp because it looked like it would fit with almost anything I played and I was right.
Reliability & Durability — 9
This is a pretty strong amp so it can take a lot. I bought this amp used and yet it still rocks the house down. I would so take it on a gig without a backup. It's a pretty reliable amp. It's Reliability and Durability are perfect in almost every way.It has never broken down on me so far.
Features — 8
This amp has a very unique sound and tons of effects. If you play classic rock, blues, metal, funk, techno, or you just jam, then this amp is the amp for you. It has several channels of playing styles on it like clean, blues, twang, crunch, recto, and of course, insane. If you buy this amp you'll have effects coming out your ears! It's got flange, chorus, tremolo, tape echo, and ping pong. Plus, it has a headphone jack so you don't annoy anybody when your playing loud. Sure there are some features I wish it had such as it has a lot so I don't need much I guess. It is perfect for shows, gigs, or anywhere you're going. Believe me it packs a punch. You can preset channels so at the push of a button you go to complete insane metal loudness to nice soft easy blues or anything. Overall this is a pretty decent amp for practicing, jamming, or doing a show and with it's size it sure doesn't look that mean but it will blow you away.
