I play it more than my great sounding Peavey Classic 50. I think that says something about this great little amp. It cannot hold it's own at higher sound levels though.
Model Year: 1990
Price: $0.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Music Store
Features:
It's got reverb and chorus! 2 x 10 speaker arrangement gives good power output of the 50 watts but it is not an overly powerful or loud amp.
Sound Quality:
This amp sounds as good as my Peavey Classic 50 2 x 12 combo. The tube preamp and the solid state output stage make this amp scream but retain a good tube tone.
Ease of Use:
No problems with figuring it out, plug it in and mess with the knobs 'til it suits your taste.
Durability:
Some quirky problems with the channel switch and chorus on occasion, but if you cycle the switch it clears up.

Good for the entrey level gigster ( quiet parties, garages) as long as the drums aren't micked.
Price: $50.00
Where Obtained: pawn shop
Features:
Good garage band amp (till the bass player updated) it was kinda old and hurt but did me well as a beginner
Sound Quality:
Sounded good till about 5 on the volume, then it kinda got a lil crazy
Ease of Use:
Very easy to carry and set up
Durability:
Here is where it goes to hell in a handbasket had ALOT of gigs with it and it let me down in front of a very large crowd. luckally we had a back up!

A little more power on this amp woud have been nice. I think it would have been perfect if they would have made a TD60C.
Price: $120.00
Where Obtained: Pawn shop
Features:
Has nice lead channel and also a adequate but not strong normal channel. The stereo effect on the chorus is nice. I especially like the insert at the reverb channel. You can run your pedal through pre-amp and use both inputs for guitars. one input is -6db so you can plug in an accoustic with out feedback.
Sound Quality:
Clean when you need it, but can get nasty if you like. It is not really good for the big stage unless you match it up with a good cabinet .
Ease of Use:
Controls are really easy to use. pedal is not a single so you can have either reverb or chorus or neither.
Durability:
I have kicked, dropped and let others use the amp and it just keeps on ticking.
