Sound — 10
As I said before I use an Ibanez RG370DXL and it works a treat with any music style. The clean channel has a nice tone to it and doesn't distort, even when maxed out. The o/d channel is very versatile, giving a wide variety of sounds. With 2 50W speakers this thing packs one hell of a punch. I played an outdoor gig with this thing and I had the master volume at 4/10, although it was miced up. Even in indoor venues I've never had to raise the volume above 5! Overal a great sound for the price!
Overall Impression — 9
Overall, this amp is absoulety amazing for the price I paid. It gives me a massive sound, good Marshall reliabilty and build quality I can rely on at gigs and a tonne of features to give me the perfect sound. If I were to have this amp stolen I would definatley buy another one, it's just brillant. there's also the option of buying extension cabinets which I am lookin into to pump up the sound even more! I would recommend this amp to any beginner to intermediate player Who wants a big sound for a low price, from a brand they can rely on as well. You just can't go wrong.

First off the versatility of this amp is staggering, I can go from a creramy blues tone to a hard crunchy overdrive with just a flick of a few knobs. I use an Ibanez RG370DXL and I'll play anything from punk to blues an this amp gives every tone possible! One thing I feel is mising is an LED to show if the DFX channel is active or not, as there is one for the o/d but no effects. The range of effects is again staggering. there's chourus/delay, delay, chorus, and flanger and all of these can be tuned to give different sounds such as phaser etc.
