Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I consider the head and the amp extremely well made. Solidly constructed. Amazing clean and distorted tone. From mild overdrive to screaming distortion. Reliability How has it stood up over time? I've only had the half stack for a few months, however as well as this amp is made I foresee no problems whatsoever with only a little bit of care. General Your general opinion of this product. I have every intention of using this amp for gigs and shows for years. I use it for hard rock and blues. Personally I tried many amps of similar quality and could find absolutely non better for the price. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? The controls are very easy to use. Overdrive and clean. If you want tons of built in effects in your amp then this is not for you. I wanted a great distortion and a great clean tone and in this amp; I got it. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Like I said above, fantastic Soldano distortion and a clean tone worthy of jazz or blues. The Eminence Legend speakers in the JCA 48s cab make it even a better value. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The head and cab looked better than the picture on the site. Action How was the action out of the box? N/A
Amazing sound, versatility and build quality.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? While I was skeptical about the Chinese manufacturing, I am super impressed by the build quality. The only thing that leaves me a bit wanting is the lack of casters on the 4x12 - not a kid anymore and my back doesn't hold up like it used to. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Way too early to tell, as I've only had it a short time. Seems solid, but it'll take some gigging to really get a good feel for this. General Your general opinion of this product. An amazing amp. I've only had it a short time and am still getting to know her, but she seems like a long-term keeper. For the price of this thing, it's a no-brainer.
