Sound — 10
The amp gives a really good friendly sound for acoustic-style songs, using reverb & the FDD switch (Frequency Dependant Damping) through the clean channel. When using the Drive Channel, you will need to turn the volume down to about 4 or 5 on the guitar, otherwise there is a lot of feedback. once you have the guitar at the right level, it gives a good, clear, yet heavily distorted sound.

Overall Impression — 10
I dont really have much more to say about this amp, except its the best one under 50 watts that i've ever used.

Reliability & Durability — 10
This 15 watt amp is powerful enough to use in small gigs, for example, i used it in my bands first performance, to audition for a "Battle of the Bands" contest (which we completely messed up because we didnt have a singer until 15 mins before it, which wasnt long enough for him to learn all of When I Come Around by Green Day) the song was going good until about 1/2 way through the first verse, which was as much as the singer knew.

When I Bought my Fist Electric Guitar & Amp last week, I bought a Fender Frontman 15R, which broke down the next day. I went back to the shop and replaced it for a Marshall 15CDR, which had pretty much everything the Fender had:- 2 channels (clean & drive) gain, equaliser, reverb, audio input and headphone input. As this amp is bigger & heavier than your average Practise Amp, it is very heavy and is not something you would want to be carrying around.
