I think its good for starters like i was once... nd i have only added to it not upgraded.
*Id buy a more power full amp if it were floged

Its jst a 15 watt amp.. but good sound, it has 2 pre amp controls ( ithink there pre amp) nd the usual bass , contour nd treble nobs.
i found it isnt that powerfull ( being only 15 watts) so i line it out into a fender squire BP.15 bass amp ( also jst a 15 watter) to give it some more ompf
I use a zoom 505 II multi effects pedal nd an old ibanez wah pedal.
i play metal style id say nd it goes good for wot i want
*it would also b good for jazz or grunge
*i think it gets noisy wif distrstion on wen im not playing.. but thats jst the distortion hey
* it was cleanat high volumes but i think ive thrashed it a fair bit so it is a bit vibratingly
No to the amp being programmable
*yes to finding a good sound.. if u no how to tune the ol girl ;)
* tis easy to use in comparison to other amps
* it isnt lound enough for live but it is good for jaming
* ive had it repaired twice i think, but thats coz it fell ova in the car
its pretty heavyly constructed
It was a present, but it was a better one than the one I had before. I would buy a cheaper american one if it got stolen. Its cool because its got a large range. Its not cool because its fragil. Anyways.

It has gain 1 which gives a kind of classic rock feel and gain two that gives it some monster distortion. It has the standard: treble, contour and bass plus reverb. Its powerful for an amp of that size. You can plug headphones into it and there is a place where you can put CD input to play along with your favourite music. The only downside is that I found it a bit fragil. I've had to have it repaired twice and the cost was as much as the cost of the amp. 120 vol 60 Hz 45 watts
I just have two pedals: a purple flanger and a big muff. The amp sounds good with them both. I play alternative, jazz, classical and classic rock. This amp has a great range without any pedal because of the combinations you can have with the gain 1 and gain 2. Its a bit rackety at high volumes, but thats usually too loud for me to play anyways. If I put it at that high the whole neighbourhood can hear me. It's got great distortion range, from none to all out.
It is hard to find that 'groove'. You really have to fiddle with the all the knobs to get the desired sound. I mark some cool sound spots on a spare piece of paper so I don't have to fiddle around.
Its pretty fragile. I wouldn't play it live. Its more of a pratice/jam amp. I've had to have it repaired twice. As long as you're not like me as you don't throw your amp around and use it as a shelve and generally don't abuse it, you'll probably be fine.
As I have said early, it's perfect for study and jams.
