Product Rating Product Review Played for years through budget multi effects. Wanted a tube amp with effects loop without selling a kidney. Thanks April Fool’s day sale! Initially unimpressed. Thought boost made it sound nasally and still not much crunch. Decent rock rhythm, but remarkably clean single notes, especially with single coils. Multi FX predictably awful in front of it, even with amp/cab sim off. Discovered the boost comes alive with a little more signal. Amp shines with an overdrive pedal, even if you turn the drive down and use it as clean boost. Combinations of clean, boost on the amp, and drive on/off opens up wide range of tones. Multi effects sound great in effects loop (chorus, flange, delay, even wah). Maxing the master volume makes it screaming loud, but I haven’t noticed any power amp distortion, just volume. Very responsive to guitar volume with added drives. Glad I purchased this. Gets better the more I play with it. Seems identical to studio 10 except knobs and color.

Tone Monster

Product Review Incredible tone monster! Works extremely well with pedals!! Straight in, its just the most beautiful clean tone you can imagine! Great feature set, including an effects loop and awesome speaker emulated out, AFTER the power stage!!! The EL34 adds such a nice body to the sound, its way beefier than I expected with an overdrive pushing it into high gain, plus, all this in silent recording mode , unbelievable value!!! It looks fantastic too!!!

Product Review Imagine a blues junior but with an EL 34 power section to deliver that classic mama kin Aerosmith type tone. I’ve used this amp in practice and the volume was sufficient. There is also an emulated output on the amp for making gigs a bit easier.

Unbelievable Amp for the Money

Product Review For the price I don't think you can ask for much more. I'm using this as a pedal platform in church. Works wonderfully and is much lighter than my delta blues it's replacing. It has a very large sound for a 10 watt amp with a single 12" speaker. In my opinion you can't beat this amp for the price.

Product Review This amp arrived quickly. The finish and color is much better in person compared to the picture posted on the site. It sounds great and not that heavy to carry. For a 10 watt amp it has a lot of headroom and it's the best for it's price. It has the sparkly clean sound and vintage old school overdrive. If you're looking for a low watt tube amp that sounds great and affordable this is the one to get.
