Sound — 9
I am currently using an Epiphone Les Paul Special and a Jackson KE3 with Seymour Duncan pickups. The amp itself is amazing without normal effects pedals I mainly use metal setting however crunch is great for punk and normal rock. The never buzzes with good condition guitars but my friends old guitar had a pick up hanging off and it kept squeaking.
Overall Impression — 9
This amp is the best alround best amp for the money. I have tried many guitars through this amp it never lets you down and makes the best sound for distortion and effect quality for under 200 squid. I have been playing for bout seven years this was my third amp and compared to pre India Marshalls this amp wins hands down. If it were stolen I would hunt the f--ker down and then stab them with my Jackson the only bad point is the clean sound. I would heavily recommend an acoustic simulator if it is play a major part in your music. Currently use the Berhinger acoustic pedal for 14.99, it's very high quality.
Reliability & Durability — 10
I would use this without a back up as I have already it we tore the place down we had a pit and everything. It has never broken down despite frequent journees in a van. I have even used outside and there was no problems.

The amp was made in 2005 according to the box and has 4 presets clean crunch metal and insane. It came with footswitch to change channels. I currently play in a metal/punk band and we practice in a small garage our drummmer is extremely loud however the amp is never used over volume 5 so on 10 ten the sound would be a beast. Although I don't use clean much it's quite digital. It also has wide choice of effects including tremelo, chorus, phaser, reverb and echo.
