I looked at the Fender Blues Jr and the Peavey Classic 30 before buying this one. As a practice amp, it couldn't be better than what it is now.
My favorite aspects of this amp are the variations I can create from the pre-set selection from the factory.

This lightweight amp is very easy to understand and play through when you're concentrating on learning, playing, and getting better at guitar.This single channel amp has a sparkling reverb, high/mid/low/level knobs, and drive besides 3 sliding switches which determine the drive colors or quality.While the amp is solid state, you wouldn't guess it at first impression.
I have been using an '80's Gibson Les Paul Custom to learn the Blues and fool around with some metal ideas.
The sound quality is outstanding at low volumes and is better than most amps costing twice as much.
I wouldn't think this would ever need to be repaired.
I tried Fender, Crate, Peavey, Danelectro, Vox, and
Marshall and although they all had thier good points,
I felt the T-10 gives you the most bang for your buck.

It's a single input/chanel with 6 mini chicken head
knobs to control 3 band active EQ pre-amp , reverb
and master volume.
Head-phones out, XLR output, effect loop and
I0 watts are plenty loud for my living room.
And it's sloid state
Iv'e used it with a strat and tele copies. It's a little
amp with lots of surprises and easily the best small
amp I've heard for 200 bucks. It's a little noisey but
what amp isn't? Clean tones sound great with
single coils and really comes to life with some
Active EQ make this amp a little touchy but I kinda
like it that way.
This amp very well made, and looks as though it
might last 30 years!
Try one! It's a blast. (I do not have any connection with Tech21) Seriously, everyone I know who plays has been knocked out by it.

The Tech 21 Trademark 10 is the best fooling around at home amplifier I've ever used. Thanks to its analog controls, you can choose between three basic amp types: Tweed (Fender) British (Marshall) and California (Mesa)
To that, you can model Clean, or Hot, or Over driven. Finally, you can choose from Flat, British Speaker, or American Speaker. To those, you get active tone controls, and a 'drive control'. Finally, there's a direct out xlr connection for recording. Wonderful, wonderful low volume tone, including a deep, rich, Fender Twin sound. I don't know how they do it. (There's also a sweet reverb, a headphone jack, and a line out if you want to add an external speaker).

It fits all styles. Not noisy. Not enough power for live gigs, unless you're a solo guitar player accompanying a singer. Plays, clean, or distorts as you see fit
Very easy and intuitive to get different sound. Owner's manual has many suggestions.
