I like it for playing around - it's an easy to get at practice amp requiring little set up. I just grab it and go. I don't know if I'd get another one if this was ripped off. But I do like the convenience. I play it with my Korg Pandora and I have a complete self contained, small set up for practicing.

This is a baterry powered rechargeable amp using a wall wart plug in adapter - you can run it plugges in, as well. It's farily small for the power it delivers Like under a foot tall. Pretty heavy - probably the battery.
This has ok sound - nothing fantastic. It has tone and volume controls and a "squeal" control which adds some distortion. Actually I like the squeal. It sound better with my strat than with my acoustic using a Duncan Woody Sound hole pickup. The out put is pretty loudwhen dial the volume and squeal up.
It a simple amp. It's portable and it recharges when plugged in.
Pignose amps are rugged. I haven't really abused it yet to find out how tough it is but it sure seems substantial.
