Overall, this amp is decent enough for practicing with, and I'm sure that is what it was intended for. If you purchase one I would recommend turning it on and seeing if it has loud humming that mine has, because I find that to be really annoying as it is almost a low E note and when you play at low volumes it clashes with any E notes you are playing.

Very basic practice amplifier. Two channels, Reverb, 3 band EQ, headphone jack and external speaker jack.
I play lots of different styles of music... I mainly use this amp at my apartment because my main amp is way too loud and also I hate lugging it up 3 flights of stairs all the time. The sound quality is acceptable, although on my particular model it has considerably loud hum all the time no matter what the volume level is at. Also hums when you listen through headphones, but I am not sure if this is how it was manufactured or if it is a problem with mine.
If you can't figure this amp out, you need to stick to acoustic guitar.
Seems fairly reliable, but the reverb on mine does not function at all, and I think that might be the cause of the loud humming the amp exhibits. Other than that, its fine for jamming in my apartment. Never would I recommend to jam with this amp live, unless of course you do not want to hear your instrument!
If you need a practice amp but dont want to be limited to one sound, or quietness, get a peavey. if this amp were lost or stolen i would buy it again. if this were a 100 watt beast it would be better, but its a practice amp so what am i saying. the trans-tube is really nice.

Controls are volume (clean channel) pre & post gain (dirty channel) low-mid-hi eq,channel swith and reverb.
one input & one headphone jack. also has an external speaker out. its all solid state. you would not be heard onstage with this amp, or with a drummer, but it creates some nice sounds and is great for both practice and recording. this amp employs peavy's trans-tube technoligy, and while its not a tube amp, you can coaxe some nice tones out of it.
I usually dont use any effects with it, the dirty channel has a wide range of tones. this amp is very versitile, from clean, greasy blues, to metal, it does it all. no noise, nothing sounds bad.
I dont even know how old this thing is, i got it for next to nothing and nothing has ever even come close to going wrong. only one tear in the tolex....
