Sound — 8
For the price this amp has a great sound, the only issue I have is when you turn the clean volume up it distorts but this also means you can get some great classic sounds. I surprised my friend with this amp because he didn't realise it could overdrive like it does, he is a heavy metal man. I use an old Les Paul copy with some Seymour Duncans in it, it really does sound fantastic, the distortion will kick you in the face.
Overall Impression — 10
I really think I got a great amp here, compared to other amps such as the Fender front man this is in a league of its own. Not to big but comes with a big punch. For the music I play I couldn't of found a better amp. If it was stolen? I don't know, find the guy and kill them would be the number one choice. I use a Boss DD-3 delay pedal and a wah wah. I strongly recommend this amp if you are after a easy to use and not too expensive amp.
Reliability & Durability — 10
I have used this amp for bedroom practice and gigging, it truly is a reliable amp, I have never had a problem with it. It does get a bit of a beating while being transported but has took all of it.

First of all this is a good amp. It has 3 channels, a clean channel, semi distortion and a full distortion. This is a very versatile amp and really does work with my style of music (mainly classic rock). It is a straight forward Vox style amp, no effects loop or any kind of digital programming which is a bonus if you want an affordable amp without it being confusing. I do wish it had an headphone socket, for house practise because this thing is loud, 12" speaker. This amp has a very good system called the 'valve reactor' (VR), and it can make some really good sounds. The sounds are not quite valve sounds but they are better then most others on the market. I do not know when or where it was made but the foot switch (the amp does not come with one) is made in Vietnam.
