Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Fit and finish are top-notch. It does not have the "heft" of a 45-lb tube combo, but it is just as well made for a 17-lb amp. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Had it a couple of years, no problems, speaker has broken in nicely. General Your general opinion of this product. When I first played this at a gig, the sound man asked me about my new "tube" amp. He was amazed when he found out it was not tubes because I was getting the same kind of gradual "breakup" from light to heavy picking just like tubes. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Classic Vox knobs - sweet. Tremolo and reverb very useful, get the footswitch. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Be real, it's a practice amp! But when I mic this baby up, it is good to go! I have not tried it with a big cab, but everybody says it's awesome. My acoustic even sounds great through this thing, real clean, bright and chimey, maybe it's the 8" speaker, I don't know. My Nova System sounds great in front of this amp, too! Finish How did the stain or paint job look? It looks like a Vox and sounds like a Vox. I love the way it looks. Action How was the action out of the box? Solid, no creaks, squeaks or rattles. Highly recommended.
