Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
It is definitely one of the more sturdy looking Chinese amps ive seen. The only knock i could find was a little messy tolex under some of the corner pieces, other than that, its a beauty and feels incredibly sturdy.
How has it stood up over time?
Just got the amp so we will see
Your general opinion of this product.
I was looking for a low wattage tube amp mainly for tone to fit my more laid back garage style, and after fighting with myself over deciding which of the small 15 watt combos to get i got the Kustom because of its price and because they had not let me down over the years. Needless to say i made a great choice. This amp is more in the lines with the Fender Pro Junior considering its just a Class A 15watter in a small package, however it has a lot more control. Its got a bass response knob and an output selecter of 4w or 15w.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Overall this was an incredible buy, for the price and the amount of features and tone you get out this thing, i really dont think theres a better choice for a low watt tube combo, Kustom really REALLY won me over with this one
How did the stain or paint job look?
Like i said its gorgeous.
How was the action out of the box?
Out of the box this thing just weeped, and for a tube amp it took a hell of a lot less time to warm up than then Fenders do. And to my surprise it had a Celestion G10N-40 which is a much better speaker than the Rocket 50 and designed speakers that come in the comparable Laney and Fender amps (except the LC15 i think Laney put this same speaker in it)
