Sound — 7
This is my main amp, I use for pratice and band pratice. I'm using it with a Ibanez RGR321EX. The sound has a verity, clean is clean crunch is a Vintage sound but this is very muddy metal is my favouriteand insane is overly distorted but it's good for solos. Getting in to more detail the effects are quite good but the tremolo is a bit of waste and is not really usefull. Now, the neagtive sides pf this is that the amp is to digital I have tryed the Marshall MG15CDR and compared to this amp the distortion on the spider just dosent have that wide analog feel and also the sound feeling of this amp seems to change every now and again when I sit down for some practice the sound like changes on you, sometimes it perfect and sometimes, it's to classy and stiff:s. And before I end I do wish this amp would work nicely with pedals cause when I tryed out a few pedals once they didn't work out that good. But lets end on a postive, this amp is loud, very loud.
Overall Impression — 8
Over all this amp is pretty good, but I thing something is missing and they could improve, a foot Switch would be nice and a design that would work with pedals a lot better would be brillant. But it has it's good sides, like it has good distortion (well sometimes) and it's loud, louder then something twice as big and could be heard with the drummer with the volume at 3. If this was stolen I might get something s bit more upper class.
Reliability & Durability — 9
Well, believe me this is a bulid very solid, and it's once fe; l down the stairs and worked fine it's even had a bit of water spilt on it and still worked. I don't really need a back up, but a back up might be an idea but I don't have much money so I rather just stick with this for what ever the reason.
Features — 9
I've had this amp for 3 months now, and I think this shuld be a good time to write a review, it's a solid state modeling amp, 4 channels clean, crunch, metal and insane, all of which is programable. Effects, chourus flange, phaser, tremolo, sweep echo, tape echo (sweep and tape echo have tap delay time) and reverb it also features cd/mp3 in which is a cool feature and a record out and head phone input. And yet there are more fetures, this has a really usefull hidden niose gate and a hidden distortion boost! So I say these are decent features for the price and when you compare it to other amps.
