Sound — 9
I use a Fender Strat style set up with single coil pickups. It suits my music style very well which varys from some acoustic sounding stuff to some very heavily distorted stuff. I have no problem getting a god sound for either styles. The controls on the front allow me to get a sound very close to exactly what I want. It is very variable. The sound is very slightly distorted at high volumes but it is nothing major. The distortion is very brutal on high gain which is how I like it.
Overall Impression — 10
Overall I like this amp a lot. It is very versatile and therefore suits my music style well. If it were stolen then I would be very annoyed but would replace it with the same amp again. It is also excellent value for money. I used to have a Fender Frontman 15G but which was pretty crap but this amp is 100 times better ad for 20 less.
Reliability & Durability — 10
I cannot comment on this very much as I have not had the amp very long but it looks solidly built and looks as though it will last. Also noticed that it come with a 3 year guarantee which is very reasuring and shows Marshall have confidence in it so I expect there shouldn't be any problems with it.
Features — 9
This amp is very versatile, my style of music varies from some acoustic sounding stuff such as R.E.M to some heavily distortion metal stuff such as Metallica. It suits them all well. It has 2 channels(clean and distortion) a headphone jack, and a CD input. The only feature I would ever wish it had would be a foot switch to switch channels, but I can buy that seperatly. I use this amp only for practicing which it is excelent for. I sometimes use it in my room and other times I use it in my local hall with my mates. It works very well in both areas and definetly has enough power.
