General Your general opinion of this product. First solid state amp I have bought in years. I bought this because my little 5 watt tube amp is a bit loud for bedroom playing. Boy, I was mistaken in thinking this little Peavey was going to be quieter. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Product seems solid. We'll see how the chinese craftsmanship holds up. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? N/A its an amp. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Pretty good overall. For me, I tried the various "voicings" in the eq and really have no use for any of them except the vintage voicing. Lead channel is usable, but only in a very small range of the pre gain. Oh well, for $99 you can't be too picky. Folks this baby LOUD LOUD LOUD. Easily louder than my vibro champ. I think you could do a small jazz gig with this amp and have no problem. Don't let the size fool you. I almost wish I had gone smaller, but what the heck...I wanted the three band eq. FWIW, it should have reverb. Only thing I would really change. Action How was the action out of the box? N/A Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Looks new...cause it is. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Can't tell you yet.
Tough to find a better small combo at this price point
