Sound — 7
I play with a Fender Squier which isn't neccesarily a great guitar but even with the amp it still makes it sound good. I vary my music from The Beatles to Metallica and this amp allows both to be played easily. The amp is 30 watts and can give quite a lot of sound. The amp can sound clean but it there is still a bit of fuzz, it sounds much better when made to sound a lot heavier. The distortion is very decent that was what I found to be the most impressive feature.
Overall Impression — 8
This is a very good match for the style of music that I play but only for people just getting into the intermediate levels of guitar. I have been playing for about two years and am quite happy with my amp. If this amp were stolen and I had the same budget as when I first started looking at amps I would buy this amp. I love the look of the amp and the effects but I dislike the way the sound goes up and down when you Switch amp styles. It was a decision between this amp and a Peavey, but I went with this amp simply because it looked much better and had a larger variety of effects.
Reliability & Durability — 7
I have only had this amp for a month or two and have had no problems but whenever a different amp is set the sound gets reset unless you just twist one of the knobs a little bit. I would use it in a gig but only if I had everything very well prepared before I started playing.

The VT30 was made in 2008. Allows me to play a big variation of music styles from The Beatles to Metallica. It has 22 different amps. Twelve different effects and three can be used at the same time. Four channels. No headphone Jack. Can buy a speial effects pedal to go with it (would be very useful)
