3 channels. clean, crunch, lead.fx loop.reverb,5 way foot switch. all tube amp verry loud clasic marshall tone .
I play rock and blues. i play ibanez s470 through it and i love it.the only other amp ive owned is a 100 watt tranor back in early 70s.doesnt hold a candle to this 60 watt marshall. a little noisey on lead. allmost too clean for me,crunch is nice for rwythems, lead has a lot of gain .i cant play at very high volumes for very long neighbors you know.but when i can anp rocks.
Got to tweek it a lot to get your tones, and there are a lot of them.very easy to use.
Only had amp 2 months so i dont know
For the price range this was the best amp I played through and I would definitely recommend it for those looking for that Marshall sound. I want to add a 1x12 extension cab to fill out the sound a little. I love the three channels and the crunch channel is perfect with a Telecaster.

Lead/crunch channels share EQ, clean has independent EQ. All channels are switchable via the footswitch which also can turn on/off reverb and FX loop. I find it perfect for the music I play (Rock/blues) with good versatility and great valve driven sounds.
I play strats & teles through it and it rocks. The lead channel has plenty of gain and I rarely turn the gain up above 5 (out of 10) for lead work. The crunch channel does what it says and can give good bluesy vintage sounds. I previously used a Crate vintage model and it is much better sounding than that.
Dead easy to use, just plug in and play. The EQ is typically Marshall, small tweaks but not much more. but then that's what you buy a Marshall for, that Marshall sound.
I've only had the amp for a few days but it appears to be rugged enough.
