I looked at other 10-15W amps and this was definately the best overall. I needed something for lessons and didn't want to haul around my 50 lb. tube amp. Would be nice if it had a footswitch for the 2 channels. Overall, for a small practice amp it is excellent.

Solid state. 2 channel- clean & lead. Lead channel has 4 options: overdrive, distortion, metal and metal stack. 3 band eq. Quite loud for its size.
I play a USA Washburn CT3 with seymour duncan pickups. Clean channel is ok. Lead channel is a lot of fun and the 4 different "effects" do sound noticeably different. Very quiet.
Seems to be built very well.
I really love it, It's an awesome amp, an the next one I get will probably be the 30 watt version.

Two channels with four distortions and a wide gain control. Very powerful (i play punk and classic rock) sound, solid-state electronics.
It has good sound quality, great for Punk and Classic Rock, distortion has a very wide range and sounds awesome. My fav. sound is Distortion=overdrive, bass the whole way down, treble the whole way up, middle the whole way up, and gain the whole way down. It sounds awesome, great for old rock and especially Beatles and early rock.
Extremely durable, just look at it.
