    Product Rating What is your opinion of this product? I have plenty of vintage Fender amps and boutique Tweed and Marshall clones, but there is just something about this amp that I love. I have this thing for 15" speakers and I'm not sure why. I like the way the amp looks and it sounds great. It is only 13 watts, but it gets loud, especially with the more efficient Eminence Legend in the Pro version. I got the Blush. The cabinet cover seems a little thicker than the original brown version, but on both versions the covering seams are not that clean. I have an original and this Pro version. The two things I do not like about the amp though. 1) The bright/dark switch which I find too bright and too dark. I have replaced the switch with a tone pot so I can get variable options instead of just the two. 2) The cabinet is incredibly heavy. I realize to make the amp cheap it must be made of MDF, but once an efficient speaker is installed, like the Eminence Legend speaker in the Pro, it becomes stupid heavy. The heaviness takes away from the feeling of a grab and go amp.
