Sound — 5
I used it along with my Epiphone junior and a DigiTech RP150 effects pedal. If you use it alone without the DigiTech it sounds okay. The clean channel is pretty good but the overdrive is too noisy. There's a chance that the sound may crack if you're playing lead parts.
Overall Impression — 8
I've been playing for 2 years but when I got this amp, I was really into simple straight to the point music like punk. It worked pretty well with punk but now that I'm learning to play solo-filled classic rock, the amp isn't cutting it for me. It works well with rhythm but not in leads as it tends to crack and lose sustain. Overall, the amp is good for starting out but as you go further with playing, you might want to buy a bigger, more powerful amp. I don't regret ever buying this amp because it helped me improve my guitar playing in many ways. For the price I paid, I think it's worth it.
Reliability & Durability — 9
For the tiny amp, it's very durable. I opened it up many times before and it still works great. Although at one time I burned to fuse because of an experiment I tried to do so I had to replace the fuse. But it's not the amps fault, it was me. I won't recommend it as a gig amp. It's only suitable for a small to medium sized rooms. I tried to play it in my garage but it was too weak to be heard throughout the whole room.

I got mine around christmas 2006. The amp is a 10 watts, has two channels; the clean and the overdrive. It has a volume, a treble and a bass knob. It also comes with a headphone jack but I never really used it. Along with the amp, it comes with a set of guitar strings, 3 guitar picks, a tuner, a string winder and a CD that teaches you the basics of playing guitar.
