Sound — 10
I use it with a variety of guitars, both single coil and humbuckers and it sounds amazing. Although there is only a single tone knob, by changing around the volume and gain with the tone, you can get a wide variety of tones. I have found that is sounds best through a Weber 12F150 rather than an Alnico 12A150 - the ceramic punch and clarity makes a huge difference on this amp. I tested several different speaker configurations before arriving at this conclusion.
Overall Impression — 10
Play Jazz, Blues, rock and metal and this little amp does them all. I've been playing for 30 years and have owned a Dumble, several Fenders and a couple of Vox AC's. This is a superb, portable amp that really stands up for it's cost. The more I play it the more I like it.
Reliability & Durability — 10
Seems pretty reliable overall. Compared to the hand wired, I'd say this is a much better, more stable amp. Had the handwired version of this and it broke down twice, this one has been superb even with gigging a lot.
Features — 8
Simplicity is the key to these amps. I had to spend a little while warming up to this amp, but now I think it is great. THe dark channel gets great cleans for blues and jazz and the Tiny Terror channel has amazing smooth distortion which is what they are famous for.
