Overall Impression — 10
I play a variety of music. For example I do recordings sometimes on fridays with my friends band and they are a blues band. Every other weekend I jam with my brother and we play heavy metal. Then on tuesdays I have my old guitar teacher over and we play classic rock and southern rock. Then on Wednesdays and Sundays I go to my church and play christian rock. You can get so many varieties out of this amp it is amazing.
Reliability & Durability — 10
This amp is always dependable that is why I have one and I got one for my older brother. I have never need to take this amp in for a repair and I probably never will. I haven't played any other gig's other than at my church and usually our rhythm guitarist isn't their so if you count that as a gig then yea I do use it for gigs. This amp is extremely reliable and durable. I have never had any problems with it.
