Sound — 5
I used it with a Cort X-1 for 2 years but a couple of weeks ago I bought an Ibanez RG1520A Prestige. You can check out the guitar at this link.The guitar has humbuckers. The amp is noisy when supplied with inefficient power supply. The sound it makes isn't too good. The clean at high volumes gets distorted & the insane & metal channels generate average distortion. I used to love it until an year ago but now my ear has matured so I want a better tone.
Overall Impression — 6
As I have said I'm a metal player & the amp is pretty ok for that. I've been playing for almost 4 years. My Cort X-1 is gathering dust in my house's storeroom & I don't have any units but I'll probably buy a Boss Metal Zone sooner or later. If it were stolen or lost I WOULD DEFINITELY NOT BUY IT AGAIN. Probably go for a Fender HOT Rod. Its very average for me overall & I SOMEWHAT REGRET BUYING IT.
Reliability & Durability — 8
It's quite sturdy never had any problem with it, on the stage or at home what'soever.
Features — 7
It's a solid state amp. Dunno when was it made. It's quite versatile for the stuff I play which is 85% metal like Megadeth, Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold, BFMV & then the rock genres like Mr. Big, Van Halen etc. 4 channels-clean, crunch, metal & insane. Some effects like tape & sweep echo, reverb but no wah-wah of course. Headphones jack & audio input. It isn't too loud for me but that's usual for just 15W.
