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.
Price: $99.00 (new)

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.
Sound Quality:
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.
Ease of Use:
Easy to use.
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)
