General What is your overall opinion of this product? I love everything about the Micro VR / SVT210AV combination - the sound, the size, and the retro appearance. As is (the Micro VR and one cabinet) you're looking at 150 watts so it is the perfect practice / small gig setup. Add a second cabinet to get the full 200 watts and you'll be able to play somewhat larger gigs. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? The electronics and build quality appear to be excellent. The sound is tight and full and there is no rattling. I've read some complaints about the fan noise (the Micro VR is a fan cooled MOSFET amplifier) but when I'm playing, I don't hear it, so it is a non-issue for me. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? The Micro VR is perfect. No effect frills (thankfully) but it has everything you need with regards to controls and input output jacks. Sound How is the sound quality? How does the sound compare to other products you've use? The sound is warm, clean, and amazing. Both highs and lows are reproduced accurately. I'm looking forward to adding a second cabinet to get the most from it. Feel Are the controls logically laid out? The controls are well laid out, easy to read, and functional. There is a definite difference between the low position and mid and from mid to high. Start out flat than adjust from there. Tone How is the tone? Distortion vs clean? While not as warm sounding as a tube amp, the Micro VR has a warmer sound than any other solid state amp I've heard and is as true sounding as they come. What you put in comes out... louder. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? You may find more power for the same amount of money, but not with this tone or portability. Quit playing around with cheap practice amps and get this instead.
Loud L'il Bugger.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This little guy saved the day last weekend. Half way through a gig, my big amp (not an Ampeg) Blew out, pretty disappointing for a amp less than a year old. I went back and got my Ampeg Micro with 2 of the speaker stacks and played the rest of the shows for the weekend without a hitch. I pushed it hard and it came back with what I wanted! Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Nice features, line out, speaker jacks, effects. Plus the tone knobs allow one to dial in the sound you want. Sound How is the tone? Good adjustable tone. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? You want a variety of tone you got it. Paired with a good bass guitar you have no worries. You may have to use the direct line out to a big PA system if you are playing a big venue.
worth the money

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Great after the first few months. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Tone. Sound How is the tone? This thing sounds incredible. Bought it with a matching cabinet and it sounds great. The only thing that sounds cooler is 2 of the cabinets so I got another one. I've also run it thru a Hartke VX410 (paper cones) and it thundered. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Very fat, growly and punchy. Tone controls are super powerful. Lots of character.
