I would definitelybuy this amp againh. I wish they made a 20 or 30
watt version. I wouldn't change it much. Little amps are great for
practice and for situations where you want to turn up without
disturbing the neighbours.
I like that is has a blue light.

This amp is very sinmple, Gain, Bass, Treble and Master volume. It is
a tube amp and puts out a great, warm tone that either clean or with
gain. Alone it is powerful enough for practice with a small group. In
performance you coould user the line out jack to push the sound
through the P.A. or a bigger amp.
I use this amp with an old Gibson Les Paul with P-90 pickups, a new
Squier Telecaster, my Telestar "Lisa" and a custom built three oickup
solid body. I play mostly blues, some jazz, and rock and this amp
suits these styles very well. It compartes VERY favorably with other
small amps that"ve had and the tone beats any solid state I've yet
tried (roland Cube, Danelectro '50',Peavey Bandit, etc). My "normal"
amp is a souped up Fender Princeton. Theser amps serve
different purposes for me, but I really do like the little Kustom
enough that I may try miking it in a performance sometime (Nick
Gravenites once played the Fillmore West with an old Fender Champ,
8 watts, miked, and it sounded awesome). With the
volume all the way up and the gain tweaked just a little, this amp
sings. Sound is very warm and clean.
I have only had this amp fpr about a month, so I can't comment on
durability. I have had other Kustom equipment in a dark past and
that held up quite well for me. This unit looks very solid (for it's size)
