This is a great practice amp, its great for practice and small gigs. I cant say its the best amp because its not a super gig amp, but i love using this amp at home and at practices. I probably would replace it if it were stolen, plus its well priced. I recently purchased a Fender Hot Rod which i use for gigs, but i still use this because its even more compact. Plus its 100% solid state, so its more durable than tube amps.

Features:
2 channels, clean and distortion. Line out-good for recording and a 10 inch speaker. Reverb is nice and the contour knob is great in the 2nd channel because you can be raw or refined. Open backed, makes it great for carrying around effect pedals and cords.
Sound Quality:
I use a Ibanez GRX and a Fender Highway. This amp is best for rock and alternative because the clean channel isnt as loud as id like. I bought this primarily as a practice amp, plus it was my first amp, and i would recommend it to any beginner guitarist, and to anyone else as a practice amp.
Ease of Use:
Very easy. Plug in and play.
Durability:
I kicked off a table once, and its still fine. Plays well and is very simple construction and easy to fix anything if you need to.

I looked at a number of amps but this was my choice and it rocks. It if was lost i would definetly buy it again. Maybe adding some more features to the amp, and supplying it with a footswitch as standard would make it better. My favourite aspect is that its a Marshall and is a real looker. The worst aspect is that its unlikely i will ever use it at full volume. Its a cracker.

Features:
This amp is a god send, after having a Squier 10 Watt for the last year. It is a solid state Marshall amp, with reverb, and two footswitchable channels. The amp is damn loud, anything higher than 4 on the volume for overdrive and you cant hear anything else. The contour dial allows u too scooop out or fill in ur sound and works wonders to give u different sounds. It is perfect for me, as it is loud enough to play in a band, but small enough to fit in my room. A beauty.
Sound Quality:
I use a Suier Affinity Start and an RP200, and it works wonders, both with the crap sound of the Squier, and the lovely effects of the Rp200 to produce something that is certainly tasty. I play mainly rock and blues and this amp is perfect with gutsy overdrive and crystal clear clean. Palm muting through this amp is a thing of wonder, and produces the nicest sounds. This amp is perfect for my needs.
Ease of Use:
This amp is simple to use, and has a good sound from the off. It comes with a guide which tells u were to place the dials in order to get rock, blues, metal or clean sounds, giving you a starting point from which u can experiment. A beauty and no mistake.
Durability:
Big and beefy is what i like, and this Marshall certainlu is, with corner protectors, and weight that will prevent u from knocking it over. It is a beast and no mistake.

Sound Quality:
I use a Squier by Fender strat and a DS-7 Ibanez distortion pedal with it. It's great to play metal and clean on it although it is suited for any other style. I like the sound that it gives me when I play my guitar on it. I changed my single coil pickups with single-coil humbuckers so there is no unwanted noise coming from my amp. I play it at volume 3 when I'm in my house and it sounds pretty loud so I put it in 9 when I'm playing with my band and it sounds awesome
Ease of Use:
It is pretty easy to use. It's like most combo amps out there but it haves the quality of a Marshall amp.
Durability:
Its construction is very durable. I've haved it for two years now and it's in mint condition. The sound is still as good as new and I haven't needed to repair it since I bought it. It comes with optional guarantee from musiciansfriend and from Marshall.
