Sound — 10
I'm currently using a Fender Squier Strat with 3 single coil pickups. Even though this guitar is not that good, this amp can make any guitar sound awesome. The amp is so versatile anyone could use it. The amp is not noisy at all as it has a built in noise gate to cut down on the fuzz and hiss. The clean channel is very clear and crisp and the distrotion is of very good quality.
Overall Impression — 10
I play a lot of metal, rock and a small bit of Indie. And for that this amp is great as it's so versatile. I have been playin for a year and a half, and it's a brilliant amp that can be introduced to guitarist at this point becasue it has more amp models and effect that a normal 30 watt guitar. I do not own any other gear as this amp can nail almost any sound you throw at it. I love the quality of the amps power and sounds, but hate the fact that the delay comes on with the clean channel. If this was stolen I would proberly buy the 75 watt version only because it's around 50 more expensive but with 12 amp models instead of 4. I chose this one because it's so versatile. If someone was going to purchase this I woudl recomend a Line 6 FBV2 footswitch alongside it as this would make playing easier.
Reliability & Durability — 10
I can't say how durable this amp is yet as it's only a month old, but so far it's had no problems. I would definetly use this at a gig without a backup. It's so powerful yet quite small, it does me just fine for a 30 watt combo I highly recomend it!
Features — 9
This amp was made in 2005. It realy suits my style of music which is mostly rock and metal. It has 4 channels: clean, crunch, metal, insane! These four amp models are brilliant as the clean channel offers clean, crisp warm tones. The crunch is a real sort of grunge sound. Then the metal channel is what you cna guess metal! And insane is just amazing! So much distortion in one channel. I mainly use the amp at home practicing and also use it to rehearse with my band. It's a very powerful amp and it also include a mp3/CD input, footswitch input, dirstortion boost, and 6 effects (chorus/flange, phaser, tremolo, sweep echo, tape echo and reverb), sweep and tape echo come with a a tap delay button. It would be very helpful if there was a built in tuner, but other than that the feature are good.
