AMS comes through

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Second amp AMS sent works perfectly. I also like the fact that since it has a second imput I can plug in a microphone and sing and play at the same time, all with this small compact amp. This is a very versatile unit.
How has it stood up over time?
With the new tubes this is a daily enjoyment. Makes practice fun.
Your general opinion of this product.
I purchased this due to its great reviews but the first one shipped to me was defective so I shipped it back. AMS called me when they received it(Monday) and shipped me a new one which arrived the next day(Tuesday)!AMS stands behind you if you have any trouble!
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
As part of my ascetic that cheap simple amps are better than massive stacks for delta blues, one volume control turned all the way up for bluesy tone is the way to go.On Youtube people also use this as harmonica amp.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
With the stock tubes a very light clean sound.Replaced with JJ's, warm dirty George Thorogood,Elmore James tones.
How did the stain or paint job look?
This is a cute amp no matter how you look at it. Very 50's vibe and easy on the eyes. With the new tubes I think I'm in love.
How was the action out of the box?
Second amp, shipped overnight, works like a charm.
