General Your general opinion of this product. I play rhythm guitar in my band and go back and forth between my Martin DX1 and a Telecaster as we play everything from Sabbath to Adelle, Aretha to Allman Brothers. This amp makes it so easy and it sounds great! Captures the range and depth a the dreadnought and with a quick spin of the dial I get a great crunch out of the tele. The presets I have tweaked allow me to get the sound for the song without a cluttered floor full of pedals that costs a ton of money. The amp modeling sounds great and is plenty good enough for the bars we play in. The Vypr Edit software made it a lot easier to move the presets into the first banks that I will use. The Sanpera II pedal arrives soon and while it will take some floor space, being hands free will make my life a lot easier. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? So far it has done all I have asked of it. I am not real hot on the built in tuner though. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? At 32 pounds, it is not a burden at all! A lot of sound in that package! Editing the presets on the amp is a bit tricky, so definitely load the Vypr Edit Software. Tweaking them at a gig is not a chore, yet getting the basic presets set up is much easier in the software. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Nice range of tones, sounds, effects and nifty goodies.
Nice Amp

General Your general opinion of this product. The amp is nice but larger, heavier, and louder than I was expecting. I would consider this a performance amp rather than a practice amp. Still, got a good price. I'm also wondering where the second, clean guitar input is for playing with your friend or plugging in my drum machine.

General Your general opinion of this product. I am playing in a project right now where I switch from acoustic guitar to acoustic bass during a show. This amp covers both beautifully! The tones are solid, loud, and bright. I also plug my electric guitar in and dial up a HUGE blues tone! Exactly what I was looking for! Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The finish looks good, but a bit too much plastic for my taste. The knobs seem solid. I wish they could develop a more solid connection for the pedal. I've never had good luck with a MIDI style for longevity. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Any tone you want....and you can fine tune all of them!
