General Your general opinion of this product. Just a killer little amp. Good tones from clear to peel the paint. The Bugera speaker really pleasantly surprised me. Lots of sparkle and doesn't tub out on the lows. Just the right controls and the pentode/triode switching comes in real handy and doesn't effect the tone much. One thing that I really like is the way it handles pedals. The preamp just seems to say okay here we go and doesn't color what is being processed. Solid amp ... solid. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I know the old "B" gets a bad rap on occasion(parent company of Bugera) but I think they did this amp right. I pulled the chassis (so much for my warranty but I needed to know) and it was meticulous. It is cosmetically quite nice and put together well especially at this price point. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? N/A Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Really nice high end. Mid is smooth and notches easily. Bottom is tight ... not boomy and mushy. Solid. Action How was the action out of the box? N/A Finish How did the stain or paint job look? This is a pretty little thing. Enough said. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Looks quite well made. Time will tell.
Great Amp reasonable price

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Seems to be built well the knobs have that old time look and feel and its a nice looking amp seems to be made very well we will see. Reliability How has it stood up over time? So far so good i play it everyday for 45 to 60 min then i go to my main amp my ZT club becuse its what i use when i gig and it is one hell of a amp well worth it cost if i was to use this at a show i would bring a back up anyhow and the club is the right amp for that size and weight. General Your general opinion of this product. It seem to be made very well i wanted a tube amp just to have one its been years maybe 12 since i had a tube amp. And i wanted something that wouldnt kill my wallet and this is the one for new guitar players to those with some time like me. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Plays like a amp worth alot more or maybe the others are just to over priced thats what i think the way they make them its not like a guitar were the wood has to be picked this is whats wrong , with most companys they make them as fast as they can. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Good for blues to jazz to rock to pop it can do it all just adjust and you will find your settings. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Looks great looks like a old time tube take off the name and you would not know who made this baby you would think a vox type amp but the sound is pretty much its own. Action How was the action out of the box? Like i said feels like a old time amp smooth controls seems to be made strong.
