I chose this amp because it was a good all around
amp. I just recently bought a new one after the old
one died and I am glad I did. My favorite aspect of
the amp is it sounds pretty clean and clear. the
distortion is not my favorite, but I dont like much
distortion anyway. I am very happy with this amp:
when I first played on my brother's I thought it cost
much more than $100.
Model Year: 2002
Price: $100.00 (new)

It has two channels (clean and distortion), a
convinient button to switch bettween channels.
Normal volume control, gain and overdrive volume.
Tremble, mid, bass, and reverb controls.
Headphone jack and a line out jack.
I use a Epiphone Les Paul and it sounds very good.
It is a very clean, clear sound. I usually play blues on
the guitar and it works good in clean or with mild
overdrive. It works fine for jazz too. With the gain
turned way up it seems good for metal, although the
chords get lost in the distortion when the gain is all
the way up. It can get really loud, I live in a house
with good sound insulation and I can never make the
volume over 2 or 3.
This is a very easy amp to use, its pretty self
explanitory. I have found that it doesnt take much
fiddling to get a good sound.
My one is brand new, but before I had the new my
brother gave me his old one that has been around
for as long as I can remember and just recently
started to buzz. It has a pretty heavy duty
construction: my brother beat the crap out of it(not on
purpose) and I can see no dents except some minor
ones in the grill. I think the thinkg lasted 6 or 7 years.
