Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Seems very well made,light yet,sturdy.
How has it stood up over time?
Seems to be well built,if there are any problems,I have heard a lot of great things about Tech 21's customer service,so I am not concerned with reliability.
Your general opinion of this product.
Great sounding amp that has many different tonal options. Small and light,but big in sound.As far as price,well I paid as much for a single high end OD pedal and was left feeling like I over paid,but NOT with this amp!This is a great price for the quality and tone you get from this amp.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Simple yet effective control layout. Love the toggle switch for the on and off in lieu of the cheap plastic button most amps have.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Can be bright or dark in tone,many options to get the sound you like. This amp does great with pedals too. I can dial(switch) in a great sounding clean,overdrive or a heavy distortion with a flick of a switch or two. Love the simplicity of this amp,reverb is great and it's all analog!No digital sounding cheap stuff here. the special designed Celestion speaker really compliments the amp.Tech 21 has gone above and beyond in creating a Solid State amp to sound this good at this price! Can't wait to see what they can do with a tube in the mix ;)
How did the stain or paint job look?
Great vintage look to it.And love the custom cover thats included.
How was the action out of the box?
