Excellent little amp!
By: Joe Sanchez from West Richland, WA USA
What is your overall opinion of this product?
Overall this little guy gets all fives. It's tone is excellent, it's construction is top notch (although I have heard rumors of the tolex being a bit fragile, I haven't experienced it yet)and it's feature set is complete+.
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
This amp will work tone-wise with any genre because of the Toneprint feature. From grit to clean, shimmering chorus it covers all the bases. Just rememeber that this is a small amp and you wont be playing any rock arenas with it but it will cover coffee shop and intimate Jazz gigs just fine.
Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features?
The EQ is standard but is well voiced, having an onboard tuner is a huge plus but the star of the show is the Toneprint feature. With a footswitch you will have access to two Toneprint effects, without the footswitch you will have access to only one.
How is the sound quality? How does the sound compare to other products you've use?
The sound quality is excellent. There is a small amount of coloration due to the box size (I think) but at low to medium volumes you don't notice it at all.
Are the controls logically laid out?
How is the tone? Distortion vs clean?
Excellent without the Toneprint feature turned on and juicy with it engaged.
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
It is a bit spendy when looking only at power and speaker size but in my opinion it's light weight and feature set, not to mention the fact that you can add an extension cabinet, makes it well worth it.
