Did not look at any other amps. Simply because he price was right. I would buy this amp again. I like its features. For a compact amp, it has tons of features, and packs a punch. Also the line out is a plus because I plan to patch to a PA system with it. The only drawback is it has the furniture finish, that you simply don't want to damage.
Model Year: 2000
Price: $150.00 (new)
Where Obtained: eBay
A solid state amp at 30 watts, with allot of punch. Has a guitar input with gain and level, Master volume, treble, mid, and bass. Also has a mic input with a level button. Has a line out jack and headphone jack. The really neat thing about this compact amp is the fact that it has an active equalizer with treble,mid. and bass controls also. Did I mention reverb too. And last but not least, it also has chorus, with speed and intensity controls.
Sound Quality:
Right now an Ovation acoustic electric is the main guitar used with this amp. But I have run a Washburn and a Guild through it and they all have the excellent sound you would expect from an acoustic amp. The amp emulates the sound of the acoustic guitar to a tee. And with the effects, it turns an ordinary acoustic into a different animal. No unwanted noise at all!
Ease of Use:
It is very easy to use. Even when you first try it.
The amp has a perforated steel grill. And has an all wood grain finish. The only disadvantage is it looks like a piece or furniture. And I am afraid to transport it.
