Guitar Used: Carlo Robelli Stratocaster Copy Pickups Commonly Used: Bridge and middle single coils Noise Level: High on high gain, around computer monitor, and when cable not perfect inside guitar (Likely all due to guitar). Clean Channel: Intentionally set to distort past halfway for a blues type tone. Overdrive: Sensitive Gain. Capable of very muddy overdrive. Use sparingly.
Overall Impression — 8
I got this amp at a buy one get one free sale at Music Central. I play a lot of different styles from classical to blues, to hard rock, and even some types of metal (mostly symphonic). The tone and sustain I got out of this thing with my Carlo Robelliwere amazing despite the faulty cable jack in the guitar. The amp's overdrive channel didn't carry much bass when you need it, but it made up for it in quality and tone. The clean channel worked very well for classical styles and the blues distortion from turning the volume past half way fit in so perfectly. It's too bad for the speaker, though.
Reliability & Durability — 7
Dependability: Highly dependable until the speaker blew. Reason for Faults: Full distortion pedal in full overdrive channel (Yeah, that was stupid).
