Sound — 9
This is a very British sounding amp. I played a Gibson Les Paul through this amp, as well as some other humbucker guitars, and I was surprised by the fact that this amp really brings out the characteristics and nuances of the guitar. By manipulating the tone knob, I was able to get both warm and sparkly clean sounds. When driven, the amp sounds great for many different styles (depending on how hard you Drive it). From classic sounds like Led Zeppelin and AC/DC to punk bands like the Ramones, and modern sounds of Audioslave, the Tiny Terror covers a lot of territory considering it's size and limited control options. The distortion certainly wont satisfy the taste of metal guitarists. Overall, the amp sounds fantastic!
Overall Impression — 9
I play a lot of different stlyes, mostly alternative rock and grunge. The Tiny Terror is amazing. It can compete with a lot of 30 watt solid state amps and is usually a quarter of their size. I was really impressed with the engineering of the amp. To have only three knobs to play with and still be able to produce an enormous range of tones and sounds is incredible. I love the price, it's portability, and the sounds I get from the head. If it were stolen I would probably replace it with another. I really wish it had a second channel, even if it were a direct clone of the first, just so I could Switch from clean to OD through a footswitch. Overall, this is a great amp for any one on a budget looking for class A tube tone!

There is only one channel so any change in gain has to be done through an effects pedal or manually.
