Gets the job done!
By: Daniel Trejo from Miami, FL
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
I've had it for little time, but it does feel very solid, specially compared to the small tube amps out there, this feels sturdy! I did notice that the tubes won't rattle very much (if at all) in high volumes. As opposed to the Fender Blues Junior, that will rattle a lot in high volumes. I think its better built than any competing amp.
How has it stood up over time?
Well, time will tell, so far it seems to be very sturdy and reliable.
Your general opinion of this product.
Overall, this is very solid amp. packed with features and simple to use. It won't disappoint.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
It is very light and it can be carried around to gigs and rehearsals without breaking your back. The Fender Blues Junior is a little lighter than this, but considering all the features that this has, It is worth the extra weight.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Just tweak the amp to find mostly every tone there is to have.
How did the stain or paint job look?
The finish on the amp is very classy and very clean, it had this vintage vibe to it, thanks to the grille, but the vinyl covering is really well implemented and it looks clean and solid.
How was the action out of the box?
Out of the box, it plays like a charm, just adjust the eq settings according to the guitar being used, and you'll be jamming in no time.
