Sound — 9
I got this amp about a year and a half from an adult friend who has been playing guitar all his life. When I first got it, I used an Ibanez RX240 and it sounded alright. Now, I use an Epiphone Les Paul Studio and it sounds amazing. When the volume is low, the tone sounds a bit dull but when the volume is up more, it sounds amazing. The clean channel sounds great for both rhythm and lead work. The overdrive is really good for anything, metal, classic rock, blues. This is why I think this amp is good for all types of guitarists.
Overall Impression — 9
I play just about any kind of music, but mostly classic rock. I have been playing for about three years now (one year starting with an acoustic, then have been playing both acoustic and electric for the last two years). This is my first and only amp (but I have plenty of experience with other amps), but If it got lost/stolen/unlikely broken, I wouldn't buy it again, but that's only because I'm looking into a Fender Hot Rod, but I love Marshall amps equally. My only wish for it is for at least a couple of effects, like maybe chorus/echo or something like that.
Reliability & Durability — 9
I don't know when it was made but that wouldn't change it at all because it sounds amazing for a $35 used amp. Water has been spill onto it before, it's been knocked into walls and doors, but it still sounds great.
