I currently use an okay Dean Vendetta 1\.0 which actually plays good but the amp is the main reason because on others my Dean is horrible. The distorted setting is not noisy even though the Guitar pickups are not great. The guitar distorts on the best amps in clean mode but on other guitars this amp plays clean in all volumes. The distortion is not brutal at all, it may be weak, but It works well for what I play.
Overall Impression — 10
Plain rock with some electronica and for practice this amp works real well. I have been playing on this amp for about 1.5 years the other gear I own is a Wah Peddle which works good so far. I am satisfied for I researched this before buying it. If stolen I would probably buy it again as a practice amp, I would like something more powerful though. I love the FX and distortion, I don't hate anything. I can compare this to my brother's Fender 15 watt FX amp which is louder, more distorted on clean and with poor working FX.
Reliability & Durability — 10
I feel comfortable using my amp anywhere. At a gig it may be a little weak, only being a practice amp but can go loud. The amp has never had a problem with it's tubes or anything. I wouldn't put much weight on it but the build seems sturdy. The knobs and back have stayed on. The only way I may neglect it is hitting it when walking out my door an the frame.

This is my first amp so I can't really compare it. The Amp is very versatile and works good with many guitars. I can play good soft rock, space rock, Metal and Alternative/Electronica Tunes well on this amp. The channels I know of are clean, clean w/FX, distorted, and Distorted w/FX. If I could have a higher distortion that would be nice but for it's size the amp works well. I have used this amp in my School's band room, my bedroom, and outside (the neighbors complained) in all it was loud enough.
