I played peavey and crate but found fender more bang 4 the $ . I would buy this amp again but prefer a twin if i had the $ . This amp sounds great clean or dirty , worry free ,still kicking and screaming after 10 years .

Features:
Solid state 85 watts 2 channels with foot switch for reverb has boost for mid and bass
Sound Quality:
I play an ibanez and fender strat,and this amp has good clean punch with tons of volume that suits any style.Sounds good with no noise or feedback . Built in distortion is decent for an amp of this size and price . This amp handles pedals and rack effects with ease .Has pre amp in & out on front.
Ease of Use:
This amp is so easy to use : plug and play ! But still enough knobs and buttons to customize any sound you are looking for .
Durability:
Rugged and good weight (35 lbs) logged 10 years on the sucker ...no problems

Overall this amp is pretty good for a solid state. I prolly wouldn't buy it if it was lost or stolen mainly due to the fact that i want a tube amp. This amp would be better if it had a little more gain saturation. But overall it's good
Model Year: 1987
Price: $0.00
Where Obtained: Friend
Features:
Treble knob, bass knob, mid knob and reverb. On the overdrive channel it has Gain, Limiter(limits amount of gain), and Presence
Sound Quality:
I use a fender american telecaster w/emg pickups. This amp fits almost any musical style. It's the best sounding solid state amp i've heard yet. It has very low noise too. It's very clean at any volume and if you switch to the overdrive channel it can really crank.
Ease of Use:
This amp has no effects on it. Just two channels. Clean and overdrive. You can get a good sound outta of it in about 2 seconds.
Durability:
This amp is very reliable. Although i did have a filter cap go bad on me. But other that that it's been really reliabe. The construction is very road worthy and durable.
