Sound — 6
I use my Ibanez RG120 and Squier Strat with this amp. It has a little bit of high end ice-pick-syndrome, especially at high volumes. It's pretty quiet and takes effects fairly well. It can only make 2 sounds, clean and sorta crunch. It's not that heavy. I haven't noticed any clean channel clipping.
Overall Impression — 7
I play rock and metal, and it's good for the rock. I've been playing for 6b years, and while this amp is good, it doesn't hold a candle to my B-52. If this amp were stolen I'd buy something else just because it doesn't have the exact tone I'm looking for. I like the built in delay, but not so much the overdrive. I wish it had a footswitch.
Reliability & Durability — 8
It's solid state amp, it'll go through hell and back and have no problems. I've played small gigs and the former owner has gigged with it just fine. I have no doubts about the durability of this amp. I mean, I've dropped it, stood on it, and kicked it and there aren't even any dings in the tolex.

This amp isn't really versatile, but it isn't bad. It has 2 channels, changeable only by the button on the front panel. I would like this amp to be a little louder, just because it barely holds up to drums without serious feedback. It has a fairly good AC/DC type crunch and a good clean tone. I wish it had separate EQ per channel, because the EQs to make the clean sound good don't work for the dirty channel. It has built in digital reverb and delay. I practice with this amp (really I make my other guitarist practice with this amp) but for that it isn't bad. It's a decent little solid state amp for the price.
