Sound — 10
I use an Ibanez RG120 (which I highly recommend, and you can read my review on that under electric guitars) with two humbuckers. This music suits any style I through at it. My styles are classic rock, blues, and metal. The amp can make a ton of sounds. It comes with 6 different amp models, clean, twang, blues, crunch, metal, and insane. Each of these have a second model built in as well, so the amp actually comes with 12 models. The clean channel remains the same at 10 as it does at 2 so, no it does not become distorted at high levels. The distortion can be any where from a nice warm clean tone, to a balls to the wall death metal tone.

Overall Impression — 10
I play classic rock, metal, and blues. This amp is a great match. I have been playing for 5 years. I own an acoustic simulator, a smallc clone analog chorus, and a Boss DS-1 Distortion pedal. I wish a would have asked if this amp would be on sale soon, because about a month after I bought it it went on sale for $200.00. If this amp were stolen or lost I would just go one step up and buy a 212 instead of the 112. The things that I love about this amp is the versatility and the Celestion. I hate nothing about this amp. The only thing that I wish this amp had was a celestion greenback instead of a regular celetion 12".

Reliability & Durability — 10
This amp is extremely reliable and extremely durable. I could definetly depend on this amp, and I would use it at a gig without a back up. The amp has never broken down. I have slammed this amp into walls, cars, and anything else that got into my way as I was walking with it and it is still holding together well.

Features — 10
I think that this amp was made in 2005. This amp is versatile enough to play any style of music on. I play classic rock, rock, blues, metal, and this amp is versatile enough to play these styles. This amp has four different channels (a-d). This amp has an effects loop, which includes chorus/flange, phaser, tremelo, delay, tape echo, sweep echo, reverb, and a noise gate. Three of these effects can be used at once. This amp has a headphone jack. I use this amp for jaming with freinds and I use it for practice. This amp has plenty of power, for jaming, small gigs, and practice. This amp is 75 watts and is solid state. This amp features a celestion 12" speaker.

    Yeah he is just pissed because he placed his amp in the middle of a sidewalk. I just bought this amp used for 210$ (CA). Apparently they stopped makeing them becuase the Spider III's are comeing out... Anyways so far I am really happy with this amp. It is a lot better than my Kustom Solo 16r.
