If you can get it cheap and need a small amp for practice, its OK. I am lucky enough to have a thrift store in my town that will check out stuff to see if it works. I also got a Sanyo cassette deck there for $10.

The input jacks are the "ON" switch, just like most stomp box type effects pedals. One or both of the jacks is stuck in the "ON" position, so I added a small toggle switch on the back to allow me to turn off the power and save the batteries.

If could be a good buy for someone who wants to modify it or "hotrod" it. There is extra room in the box for more circuitry, so you could put a true distortion circuit in it, or even put a new speaker in it.

I guess that the main thing is if you need a little amp for practice by yourself, this is a good cheap choice.
Price: $2.00
Where Obtained: YMCA thrift store
Has volume, tone, headphone jack, 2 inputs with 1/4" jacks, 4" speaker. Solid state amp, can run on adaptor or "C" batteries. Loud enough for me to practice by myself.
Sound Quality:
Its just for practice. Gets distorted if you turn it up. I have used it with a distortion pedal and delay pedal. It does a pretty good job of reproducing my sound.
Ease of Use:
Easy to use, but no effects.
Seems durable. It is a solid state amp. (no tubes!)
