Sound — 9
I use a Casino Stage series guitar with standard pickups. (just your standard pickups for a cheap guitar.) As I said before, It actually will do Hard Rock and Metal decently well. BUT THE BIGGEST THING THAT AMAZES ME IS THE AMOUNT OF DIFFERENT TONES YOU CAN GET OUT OF THIS AMP! Absolutely astonishing how much you can get out of this amp. The ONLY PROBLEM is when the Drive is off, and the gain is low, it is very quiet. And suprisingly you can have the driveThe Drive is decently brutal. When people say "you get what you pay for" that is all total bullsh*t when it comes to this amp.
Overall Impression — 9
I love this amp, the tones on this go from smooth cleans to heavy distorted sounds and everything inbetween. Brilliant amp, Distorted it can play super quiet and not lose any overdrive, and play pretty loud for a small amp. But if you want to go even louder, I suggest you go for the pathfinder 15. The only problem I have is the volume of the amp when the gain is low.
Reliability & Durability — 9
This is pretty much the only amp I use at home, I have never had a problem with the amp, it sounds nice all the time, it also looks very nice! Obviously I wouldn't gig it unless I was on my own in a small crowd. After all, it is only a practice amp. And a bloody good one at that.
Features — 8
The features are pretty impressive for a practice amp. It had your standard treble and bass controls, (no middle) gain and surprisingly a good overdrive setting. For a VOX, this Drive is pretty good, I play mostly Hard rock and Metal. Sure, it's not the best suited amp, but it actually does a pretty decent job of it. And the price is amazing. Worth every dollar.
