Overall Rating:
It's a decent practice amp. The CD player input allows you to play along any song you're studying and the sound is good enough for home practice. If I could go back in time, I wouldn't buy it again. I would get an AVT series Marshall amp instead.
Model Year: 1999
Price: $260.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Timbres Instrumentos Musicais
Features:
- Controls: 2 Gain levels, treble/bass/contour, master volume, master reverb, chorus depth/speed and chorus on/off switch.
- Connections: one guitar input, one CD player input, one headphone output and stereo line outs.
- Power: 2x15 W RMS through 2x8" speakers, stereo. Loud enough for home practicing and study.
- Electronics: solid state

It's a small solid state amp, good for home practicing. The lack of footswitchable channels is a pain, though.
Sound Quality:
I usually practice using this amp with my Ibanez JEM 555WH or my Strat. I run a Zoom 505II for effects and it sounds good enough for practicing. It isn't an amp you take to a gig, though. The bass frequencies are a little messy because of the tiny speakers. But for practice only, it's good enough.
Ease of Use:
It's easy to use overall. The knobs are simple and you won't have much trouble finding your way around. But it's missing a footswitch.
Durability:
The construction isn't solid enough as the high end Marshalls and Fenders. I wouldn't play it outside my home.
