Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? For a non-US or UK built amp, it's very well put together, seems like a solid piece of equipment that should last. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Just got it. General Your general opinion of this product. I love this amp! I started going down the road of lower power amps mainly for the purpose of gigging in smaller clubs, not wanting to haul the whole Marshall half stack in there when I can barely turn it up to 2. This amp, along with a vertical 2x12 is not only space saving, but nails most of the tones I need (I use a plexi model in my processor for that need) and it's super flexible. Bottom line, it's probably the best money I've spent on an amp. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Feels good. :) Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Very tight and articulate, lots of lows if you need them. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? N/A Action How was the action out of the box? N/A
