Purchased from: In a Starter Kit with a Starcaster
Sound — 5
I use a Fender Starcaster. And it sounds great at when set to "clean". The Overdrive sounds pretty good through it as well. I find that if I turn the tone knobs on my guitar all the way down, the volume all the way up, and the volume on the amp down to 2, it sounds great.
Overall Impression — 10
I think this amp is great for what it was designed for. It was designed for use by those just staring out playing guitar who don't know a whole lot yet. Those who wrote reviews and have been playing guitar for years, your opinion on this amp is irrelevant because this amp was not meant for you. This amp is great for praactice on your own while your starting out, if you wish to do more, you're going to need to upgrade to something better. But till then this amp is great.
Reliability & Durability — 10
This amp is definitely meant for those just starting out who don't know how to treat an amp. I've had this amp for over a year, and have not had a single problem with it. It has a very strong outer-shell covering all but the front. Also has metal corners on all but the top two in the front for even greater protection if dropped. If you were to compare my amp to a brand new one, I'm certain you would not be able to tell which was which.
Features — 7
I find that the amp is great for my purposes. The only time I ever play right now is in my room, where it's nice and quiet. The Overdrive on it is pretty good, not bad for such a little amp. It sounds great when set to "Clean". It wasn't made for any more than this. It was obviously designed to be a starter amp not for use in concerts. Features Input and headphone jacks, Volume, Treble, and Bass knobs, and power switch, with light.
