Sound — 10
I own a Jackson Randy Rhoads guitar with Seymour Duncan pick-ups. This amp works perfect with my guitar, but I realize not everyone owns the same guitar as me, so I played a few more guitars on it. B.C. Rich Warlock Bronze, B.C. Rich pickups, the amp sounded as if I ever Switch guitars. Epiphone G-400, Standard Epiphone pickups, amp still sounded as if the guitar was my Jackson. Schecter Damien, Passive EMGS, amp sounded amazing, But I still didn't hear a difference by changing guitars. ESP LTD M-50, Standard LTD pickups, amp didn't sound any different. The amp can be extremely load. I have not yet put it on full blast. I play guitar in my basement, and I even played in a basement show and it still over-road the drums and PA. This amp can make a brutal sounding guitar, even if you have a Squire Hello kitty guitar, but it can also make a very clean sounding guitar out of a Schecter Damien. At high volumes this amp sounds like you didn't turn it up, distortion wise. It does get loud and it remains perfect sounding.
Overall Impression — 10
My band pretty heavy metal, bands like Atreyu, As I Lay Dying, and Children Of Bodom. This amp has very nice sound for what I play. I have owned this amp for 6 months, no problems. One thing I would have asked about before buying this amp is if I could get the pedal for quicker channel swap. I would never hesitate to buy an amp from Line 6, the reason I bought one was because my friend had a Spider II and I liked it so I figured I would buy a Line 6 and I was very impressed by both amps.
Reliability & Durability — 10
This amp is very Durable and Reliable, I have never had any problems what so ever with it. The amp always puts out the sound I need, and at the volume I want. I don't ever have backup amp simply because I cannot afford one. My amp has never broken down on me so I feel safe with using it 24/7.
