This amp sucks, but its really cheap for a 40 watt amp. If you want to play small clubs or blast the hell out of your neighbors, this amp is ok, but that low muddy growl kinda ruins it.

40 watts, stereo chorus, spring reverb, two channels. The amp has two 8" speakers, a decent gain channel with a scoop EQ, and a clean channel with a 3 band eq.
What else would you expect for 150 bucks? Actually, the amp sounds fine except for one major flaw, the bottom end. Any distorted tone that is played with the volume more than 1/4 the way up results in a terrifying rumble and causes your room to shake. This deep humming noise overpowers the rest of the signal, and hurts your ears. YOu can fix this with some simple EQing, but I like my bass kinda high, so it sorta sucks.
This category doesn't really apply to solid state amps. The knobs turn well, and the channel button makes a satisfying clicking noise.
I don't reallly know how durable it is, but I assume its ok.
