Sound — 8
Sounds awesome. He thinks the sound you can get from this little amp would be hard to match. He He uses all types of guitars from Fender Strat, PRS, BC Rich, Indie so all types of pickups have been used. From clean to distortion he has absolutely no complaints.

Overall Impression — 3
He plays all genres of music from punk, rock, pop, Indie etc. He plays in a couple of bands at the moment although rarely uses his Vox as most venues have their own backline equipment. He has on occasions used it for small venue gigs. A great sounding amp for practice or small venues. Felt extremely disappointed about the quality and reliability of this product. Will not be buying Vox again.

This is where it all goes wrong. In May 2006 (being 3 weeks old) the speaker blew. It was returned under warranty to Korg. After some 8 weeks they decided to supply a new amp. After another few weeks the carry handle broke - bearing in mind this amp is not moved regularly - and yes you've guessed it the input jack has been inside the amp more times than it's been out! In April 2007 the speaker blew yet again. As this amp is less than two years old and now out of warranty I am now looking to replace it as he has lost all confidence in it and would certainly not depend on it for gigging. It's such a shame that the quality of this little amp is not better as it has some great sounds.

I bought this amp for my son in May 2006. Although he is only 15 years old he is a very accomplished guitarist. He gigs with it occasionally at small venues but mainly uses it as a practice amp in his bedroom. He loves the amp and finds it very versatile as he plays many genres of music including, metal, rock, Indie, pop etc.
