Sound — 10
Crisp, clear and loud, especially for a 0 Watt amp. Does a great job for when playing all genres of music. I usually play rock and find that this amp does the job. I have an old Aria hollowbody guitar that i found in the dumpster...seriously. It only has two pickups, but both are in excellent shape and pick up everything. As already stated the two channels are excellent and their sound is unequalled by far.I know this because I have tried the Peave Rage 158 and the Fender. Overall very impressive.

Overall Impression — 10
Much better than any Peavy because of is FDD technology.As for its size dont let it fool ya, this thing packs quite a punch and will do even for small gigs. One miss is that it doesn't offer distortion, but then again the perfectly tuned overdrive setting makes up for it. A great buy for beginners who seek a quality sound without a huge dent in the old pocket.

Reliability & Durability — 10
Had it for three weeks, no problems so far. No crackilng, poping nor static sounds. Marshall is one of the better, if not the best brands for amplifiers.

Features — 8
A small amp with two channels (clean and overdrive). Has an input jack along with CD and earphone jacks. Can be configured for various playing styles such as blues, heavy metal, rock and clean. This is all acomplished with very easy instructions. Lack bells and whistles but then again its 125 bucks.
