Sound — 4
I used this amp exclusive with humbucker pickups, specifically my PRS SE Jack Tremonti. I like rock and blues, and when it worked this amp was OK, especially when using the clean channel with a distortion pedal. The clean channel starts to clip at about 6.5, and it's a nasty sound, making this amp useless for gigging really, despite the 30W. I really don't like the sound of the Overdrive channel at all, I never really used it, it's more a fuzz than what I think of as overdrive. The amp is also pretty quiet.
Overall Impression — 1
Stay away from this amp unless you like frustration and wasting money.
Reliability & Durability — 1
I would never depend on this amp. It's had problems ever since I bought it. The amp has spent most of its life safe and warm in my front room, and still it breaks down. What happens is that the volume starts getting louder then softer, unpredictably, as the amp warms up. You then pay 40 to get it fixed, it lasts for 6 months, then comes back again. What a waste of money. I regret buying it, very much.
