Pretty good.i'll keep it around the house forever but to play out a lot I need a head.this amp will not run an extention speaker (without modification)
Price: $0.00 (new)

Nice chorus.power output is65 watts per channel stereo into 8 ohms and I have all of the factory scematics and specs.Fender made a few varietys of this amp but mine was a stereo unit (if it has chorus it has to be).stereo and mono effects loops.and a headphone jack.
Playing a Ibanez s540ltd and yamaha strat it is beautiful on the clean channel.the overdrive is a little thin.I've used a bunch of different stomp boxes through it .not great for metal but a very distinct sound.spring reverb is twangy .
Pretty simple to dial in a good sound.
I've used it for everything.It used to shut off with too high of an input level i.e. distotion box.it had a faulty temp sensor on the heat sink.speakers lasted for about ten years.runs a little hot for a solid state amp.
The best thing about this amp is true power with reliablity, i could no live without it. no frills rock n roll amp. add a pod and get out of the way!!!!!
Clean channel has bass,mid,treble. overdrive has presence, contour, and gain. stereo chorus has depth and rate. channel switching and effects loop(stereo and mono) at 80 watts, plenty of power for any club gig. incredible chorus. sweet clean channel, and overdrive is powerful. seperate setting for clean/overdrive channel. pedal has channel, reverb, chorus, and boostselection
I play through an 86 strat loaded with with a floyd rose and dimarzio super distortion. i play hard rock, and blues. amp is strong through all shades of distortion, but excells with 70's rock brit sound, but can thicken all the way to a heavy metal distortion. there is no need to mention the sweet sounding chorus ladden fender clean sound. excellent "bar combo"
Very easy to milk whatever sound you need. occasionally, play through a line 6 pod, with that there is no sound you can't reproduce, with plenty of power to push sonic dreams
Non-tube solid state amp takes all you can give it
Its a good beginners amp, and is great for a band practice amp, well built, decent tone, easy to use, and not to expensive to boot!!
Where Obtained: a trade for a beat-up peavy amp
80 watts, 2 channels, reverb but is always on.
Good overall tone, gets really gritty when the contour knob isnt cranked to 10, but good over all tone, nice clean tone too.
plug in, turn on, and rock out!
Strong cabinet, carpet covered...plastic corner covers...well built.
