I would buy it again if it was lost or stolen. It is a great amp. It works and bang for your buck aspect is great. I reccommend it.
Price: $40.00
Where Obtained: A friend
Features:
It is a little practice amp, but it has great sound. I love it. I have it at college with me because nothing else would fit in the room. It works fine though. I don't know how it would be playing live, but it rocks in the room. Its basic, gain, chorus and reverb. Works great.
Sound Quality:
In high volume it soudns a little choppy. Distortion sounds great and you can fiddle with chorus an stuff to get some cool sounds. It plays rock good and blues. I play Hendrix alot and it sounds fine for that, it also works for Rush, even without the effects.
Ease of Use:
It isn't programmable, and it works well. Compared to other amps I have used, I have a Fender 112 and it sounds better, but for the price, you can't go wrong. Extremely easy to use.
Durability:
It is a practice amp so I don't know about playing live. Quite heavy construction, very durable.

Ive seen other amps that are comparable to this one in the peavey model, marshall, and roland.I think that this model is a more logicall choice. As far as my favorite and least favorite features go what can I say, its a practice amp.
Model Year: 1996
Price: $75.00
Where Obtained: pawn shop
Features:
General Equalization. Gain switch for distortion. chorus. Reverb. 10" crate speaker. Headphone jack. 1 input/1 output
Sound Quality:
I use any guitar to practice with it. It is perfect for rythm guitar and it can play loud for its size. Its very clean until about 8 1/2 out of 10 volume. Its distortion is a little crunchy.
Ease of Use:
Not programable. Practically no fiddling to catch a good sound. easy for practice especially.
Durability:
Reliable for small indoor performances. never needed a repair yet9Since its manufacture date 1996.) Pretty damage resistant. Hard outer casing.

I dont know about many amps so its hard for me to compare. i used a couple of small peavey's when i got this one and thats it. i like the peaveys also but for the price i picked up this one it was a bargin. my faverite aspect of this amp is its sound and power.I wish it had a effects loop but for practice its great.
Price: $50.00
Where Obtained: second hand music store.
Features:
This combo is a solid state amp with lots of power for its small size. it has a clean channel and an overdrive channel. it works great for hard rock and mellow music. is got a clean sound with a chorus button and a reverb. it has three different tone knobs. its a great looking little amp and i was very surprised by it. A great practice amp. It also has a output jack and a head phone jack for when you want to rock while your house is asleep.
Sound Quality:
Like i said earlier in this review it has great sound. I use a charvel guitar with it and it distorts with out sounding like crap , also it sounds great at hi volumes in both overdrive mode and in clean. ive used other little practice amps and this one may not be the best out there but it was worth every dollar i paid for it.
Ease of Use:
This is rather a simple amp and easy to use and find a great sound. its not programmable but for a beginner or just want to practice works great.
Durability:
This has a pretty hardy constuction for a little combo amp. i dont know about for live playing i think its more for practice. i use mine alot and it has never had a problem and i bought it used and its still rocking my house.
