Sound — 8
I play the Brian May Guitars Red Special. It has 3 Burns Tri-Sonic, which are single coils. It suits my music style almost perfectly, I only have trouble while playing Jimi Hendrix. I simply can't get the sound right. I found really nice settings to do the solos and to do the AC/DC kind of music. The amp is really versatile and does great job. I have comparison, since I played also the Epiphone Les Paul Standard through this amp. It also fitted really great. In my opinion, one of better sounding solid state amps.
Overall Impression — 9
I play classic rock like Queen, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix or Rush and it's really a good match. I've been playing for over 3 years but I've got an electric guitar for 8 months. I have a Brian May Guitars Red Special and a Vox Pathfinder 10. If it were stolen I would buy it again or get a tube amp. The greatest thing about this amp is the versatility. The worst is in my opinion the built-in tuner which isn't really clear for me. I compared it to the Laney Prism P20 and Vox DA20. I chose this one because it had more power and sounded just as good.
Reliability & Durability — 10
The whole thing looks pretty solid. I have the amp for 8 months and I've had no problems with it what'soever. I would use it on a gig without backup. It has fallen quite often and I sat on it when my strap broke and it looks brand new. It's unbelievably reliable.

I bought this amp in December 2010. It's my first amp, cause I've played the classical guitar before. I play classic rock. Something like Queen, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles or Jimi Hendrix. The amp has 12 different amp models and four user preset channels. The sounds are: clean red/green, twang red/green, blues red/green, crunch red/green, metal red/green and insane red/green. It has a headphone jack output and no effects loop. The amp has a whole bunch of effects: flanger/chorus, phaser, tremolo, delay, tape echo, sweep echo and reverb. I never use the tremolo so I can't tell how does it sound. But the other effects are pretty good, especially reverb and delay. The amp has 30 watts, what is enough for me, since I'm more a singer than a guitarist. But my friend used it and it was perfect for the gig.
