Overall Rating:
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.
Sound Quality:
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.
Ease of Use:
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.
