Sound — 2
I use(d) this to play styles from metal (Iron Maiden) to death metal (Cannibal Corpse) and found it hit neither tone very well. I know its not the guitar since I've cranked some serious metal tones out of my Jackson, and I spent hours and hours eq'ing on this to end up with an all round horrible tone on every channel, spare clean. The distortion is pathetically weak, even on insane (which just mudds your tone horrifically). It gets a two, only for the half decent tones capable from the clean channel.
Overall Impression — 3
Overall, this amp left me a bitterly disappointed. For anything that requires any distortion, this amp is USELESS. I wish I had've been able to sit down with it and try it properly, but the staff at the store I bought it refused (probably because they knew I wouldn't buy it if I had been able to). If it were stolen I'd laugh at whoever was stupid enough to steal it and wish them well with it. I bought a Peavey Vypyr almost instantly afterwards and haven't had a single problem with that, its a dream of a modeller. Overall, please do NOT buy this thing, you'll spend hours afterwards wondering why you did.
Reliability & Durability — 1
To make matters worse, this thing wasn't even built well. It broke down on me almost every session, sometimes without returning to working order for more than a week at a time. I took it to a few small jams with other guitarists and it was out competed by even a Crate flexwave15R. I would never gig with it, mostly because the wattage is too low, and because its a legitimate joke (and I use a 6505+ for shows). It gets a one because it is just that bad.
Features — 6
I'm not going to list the features since everyone before me has already done it. This amp is more or less a joke for anyone who has any degree of idea to what they're doing. It has enough power to fuel a bedroom practice session, but nothing more. I give it a 6 only for features.
