Overall Rating:
Fender blues and twins. Marshall combos. I chose this to save the extra cash. I would buy it again. It would be better with a built in chorus set up. But the saved $ will buy a good pedal. Favorite aspect is its a combo/ 1 piece. Worst is that its 70 lbs. I bought it "blemished" from the retailer for another 100 off. 290.00$ for a 100 watt amp with extras that I can play all styles on.
Model Year: 2004
Price: $370.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Online: Sameday music
Features:
Effects loop, and headphone jack. 4 positon footswitch is for reverb on/off, vol boost, midshift tone change, and channel switching. Basic knobs: bass,middle,treble,gain and volume. Master presence knob. Lead channel has "pull" middle for tone and distortion changes. Easy to set up and control via footswitch. Loud! Can add a second cab for more watts (120). Good for church,clubs, hall gigs, (rock,blues,jazz)
Sound Quality:
1958 ES 225 for jazz/blues, Cheap strat copy for rock of any kind. No pedals but sometimes use a pandoras box for effects. Its a real quiet amp overall. Some noise with reverb and effects depending on set up. Clean is clean and it will distort to the hilt. Had everything I needed to replace a twin reverb (1975) plus more and it was louder, and cheaper than a tube replacement. Tubes don't make me any better of a player.
Ease of Use:
Easy as stated earlier to set up and control. No patch creating or editing unless its a third party effect add on.
Durability:
Its an indestructable monster. I bent the wheels on one end though. The amp itself takes serious abuse and is solid.
