Sound — 2
I am using a Gibson Les Paul Studio and this amp kills the tone. I play mostly classic rock, so this amp doesn't really suit me. It is noisy if you don't turn off the noise gate so if you enjoy this amp turn the noise gate off. As I said before I think the insane is good for that shredding/tapping sound. The distortion is not even cool it's digital. The effects on this amp are very bad also especially reverb.
Overall Impression — 3
I play classic rock and this amp does not do me good because I don't do a lot of tapping. I've been playing for One year and I would reccomend an Epiphone Valve Junior or a Roland Micro Cube. If it were stolen or lost I would have a celebration because I hate this amp! I wish I got a Epi Valve Junior. I hate everything about this amp.
Reliability & Durability — 7
Its too durable because I've tried to break it in order to get a new amp. It has too good of a warranty too! I've neglected it and it still won't break. So if you want and amp to show you grandchildren buy this but don't play this because someone will call 911.

This amp in my opinion never deserved to make it to the market. It was made in 2004. First the clean channel. Don't even get me started on this channel! It sounds very digital and Echoes a lil too much! The crunch is the best channel on the amp and it is still not even good. This channel doesn't sound digital, but it doesn't really have a crunchy hard/classic rock sound! The metal channel is just like a metal band who decided to go into the digital world. The insane channel is the second best channel. But, I have to admit that channel is good for tapping!
