General Your general opinion of this product. I love my picovalve. Let me rephrase that I love my second picovalve. The first one was doa and I unfortunately was given a real hard time from associate I talked to about my amp not working when i received it. She told me that i must not have it hooked up correctly. I assurred her that i have owned numerous tube amps and know how to hook up a speaker cable and a power cord. I just wanted another amp but she really treated me badly. REAL sarcastic. I never ever write reviews or complain about customer service but this lady told me she wasnt gonna argue with me that i must have done something to damage it. I was finally able to talk to a supervisor who was sweet as she could be a immediately shipped me another amp. The second one is the bomb it works great. I love being able to use pretty much any tube i want in it. This is my second jet city and for the money they cant be beat. I just have second thoughts about ordering from this company after being verbally abused by an employee. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Jet city is designed by Soldano so you know its built well. Its been great the three months i have owned it. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Yes Reliability How has it stood up over time? Reliable as a toyota.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? It is heavy and appears to be solid built. Reliability How has it stood up over time? First one was dead, but AMS has great customer service and I had a new one in days. General Your general opinion of this product. This is a realy good practice amp. I was surprised to find this amp much quieter than my Marshall Class 5 (might be because its hooked up to my 2 x 12" cab.) My grandkids can be asleep down the hall and I can still get some good grind going and not bother them at the 5 watts setting. It looks great,but I wish it had the same top as the Univalve. It is a great Tinkerers amp because you can change the tubes and find your tone. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? It is a warmer tone than my Class 5's, which I like with my guitar. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Action How was the action out of the box?

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Built very well, very rugged and good quality components right down to the knobs! Reliability How has it stood up over time? Just let her warm up for a minute or two BEFORE switching the standby off and she rips every time! General Your general opinion of this product. Great little studio amp! Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Like I said, it's the Holy Grail of low-watt studio amps! Finish How did the stain or paint job look? All satin black with white lettering. Action How was the action out of the box?
