General Your general opinion of this product. Compared to the fender super champ x2 at $299 and the jet city 22h which I also own, this amp has great tone albeit only one channel. It does however, have two input jacks. One for 15 watts and the other for .75 of one watt which is great for playing without headphones and not bothering the neighbors or family. The tone,grind,playability remains and you can drive the output[el-84's] nicely. It also boasts a gain and volume,bass,middle,treble, and a tone knob. Plenty of tweaking available. The reverb is digital but sounds surprisingly good but don't expect to get the "surf-sound" from it. You can use either the 8 or 16ohm speaker jacks, but only one or the other which is no big deal really imo. No standby switch either,same as the fender. The power cable is hard wired and has its own little storage pocket with a velcro tie. The power cable is short[about 4ft] and only 18awg. Most are at least 16awg. I intend to upgrade this to a longer heavier wire when the warranty expires. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I bought this as a dent and scratch and besides 3 of the finish washers flattened from overtight screws, it was fine. Nothing special quality wise and you can see where they used cheaper parts to cut costs like on many other overseas amps. The unit gets pretty hot after a while, mainly because the tubes are top mounted like you would find in a combo. The outer power tube is very close to the power cord but guarded by the metal grille on the back. I barely had enough clearance to hook up my 12awg speaker cable with "jumbo" connectors due to where the speaker outs are located. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? I could get about every tone/sound I wanted from this thing. The exceptions would be extreme clean or extreme heavy metal. You can get a good clean but probably not at a loud enough volume/headroom for gigging, especially with a drummer. This thing shines at bedroom levels at the .75watt setting and for recording. Rehearsals and small venues at the 15watt level if you don't need a loud clean. It cleans up well using the guitars volume. Any clean boost stomp box and/or graphic[like the MXR M108] would help for gigging as would a 2x12 or 4x12 cab. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Gets bright,dark,and between nicely. Good amount of lows too on my strat through a Rocktron S-112 cab. I havn't tried it with 2 of them yet. Action How was the action out of the box? Good dynamics when you find the sweet spot between gain/volume knobs and your guitars volume. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? It looks great. Retro classic. The handle is comfortable though a bit small for big hands. Only weighs about 20lbs. About the same size as the fender head but taller. Smaller than the jet city by a little. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Who knows. It does seem to run hotter than the jet city or fender and the heat from the tubes will get the components and pcb board extra wear over time. But so does a Vox AC30.
