I started using it with Fender single coils, but now am using EMG humbuckers. My style of music is basicly metal, clean sad songs, blues, and rock. it's only a little noisy on the crunch setting-the fuzz type blues sound-but not that much. There is a thing called hidden features that has a noise gate to block out any extra noise. The 4 channels are clean, crunch, metal and insane in that order. the Clean is very good and can get very good ehcos with the tap delay on and it is very good with the reverb to. (yes it has reverb.) the crunch is very good for blues but really matches many led zeppelin songs. The meatl is really just awesome overdrive, but there is no gain knob. The insane is a very high distortion, good for metal. And the distortion will make your ears bleed if you turn it up I mean really they did a very good job with the metal and insane settings. It is also very, very loud and good for small and medium size gigs.
Overall Impression — 10
I play music that requiers all settings it's an awesome match. I have been playing for a year and a few months, and you can see my gear on my profile. I would buy this again I really would because it is very reliable. I do want to upgrade to one of them with the like 250 different presets but I gotta wait for the money.I mostly stayon the metal setteing and clean setting but I do use them all. I still wish it had a gain knob. I highly, very highly recomend this product for a practice/small-medium gig amp. Get it.
