Sound — 10
I use a crappy Squire Strat, and it makes my strat sound like a freakin Dinky. This is like the perfect amp for metal, or even blues. I can use it for recording, and it's awesome. There is no sound, and if your not playing, you wouldn't know it's even plugged in. The clean channel doesnt't get even a little distorted until like 7. This is the freakin perfect amp for metal. The distortion is the most demonic and brutal sound you could ask for. I would rate it 20 if I could.
Overall Impression — 10
The only other thing I could ask for is a bigger treble output. This blows my Fender Frontman out of the water. I really love the R-Fier setting. I almost bought a Peavey over this, but I really made the right choice. I love thye raw distortion. it's perfect for freakin metal. If this were lost, I would sureley buy it again if I had the money.
Reliability & Durability — 10
I would for sure use it at a gig without backup. This is the most sturdy amp I have used (in this price range). Since I've only had it for a few months, nothing has gone wrong about it, but I don't think anything will. I can surley depend on this amp for anything.
Features — 9
I'm 11, and I've been playing for 5 years. I'm in a hardcore metal band, and this amp works like a dream. It has a great As I Lay Dying/Underoath's Cries of the Past tone. It can easily play over my drummer, and even with full gain and distortion there's no noise. It has a lead channel and a clean. The lead has 8 amp models.
