For the price with the foot control this is hard to beat! You can not use two or more of the pedal settings (octave with OD)at the same time. You can use the loops with a separate pedal however. I would have liked to hear the Fender Cyber but it was not available.
Price: $574.00
Where Obtained: Sam Ash
Features:
Amp was purchased used with the optional footpedal for the above price. This mono modeling amp has 32 presets covering a wide range of sounds(AC/DC-clean). The presets are in 8 bands with 4 channels. With the footcontroller ($100+?)you can very quickly change to any 4 setting(channels)in the same bank(within a song). With a bit more agility you can access 16 settings with the foot controler(4 banks each with 4 channels). To get between each set of 16 setting (4 bank with 4 channels to the other 4x4)you need to tap the bank buttons on the top of the amp. The presets can be overwritten if you wish then recalled later. I have yet to venture from the presets much. There are 16 amp settings, 10 pedal(comp,acoustic, Vox Wah, Auto Wah, U-Vibe, Octave, Treble Boost, Tube OD, Fat OD, Fuzz) 5 modulations (Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Trem, Rotary), 3 Delays (digital, tape, multi-head), and 3 reverbs(spring, room, plate). Also there is a useful noise-reduction feature. The top of unit has pedal effect, amp, gain, volume, treble, mid, bass, presence, master volume, and separate buttons to select the mod/delay/reverb. Each effect has two knobs to adjust the drive/speed/feedback and level/depth of the effect. From slight to wild levels can be reached. Depending on the amp or effect some controls are not in operation. Tuner control is on the top and can be accessed from the foot controler. There are two inputs (high/low). In back there are external speaker and loop jacks, phone level control, phone out, line out/in, foot controler, and power select control(1-60w). Enough power to bother the family and street.
Sound Quality:
I play rock/metal with a crappy strat copy (s/s/h). I can hit AC/DC or Rush type sounds. I play mostly at the lower output (1w) setting and it produces a nice dirty tone when needed. The noise reduction is a great option for the single coil when using very high gain. It knocks out extra buzz but leaves the sound intact.
Ease of Use:
Very simple to use. Punch a button or two and you are set to go. For me there is no comparision in easy of use to a good tube amp with a floor full of pedals.
Durability:
I can not comment on what throwing it around does. It seems to be solid. I've had it six months with no problems.
