Overall Rating:
This amp could be better if the boost/clean control button was a footswitch. I might even do the modification myself but I suggest using external distortion instead.
Price: $45.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Target
One 1/4" input jack. One volume, treble and bass control. A boost/clean button on the front and an output for headphones.
Sound Quality:
Sounds good enough for practice or perhaps where a quiet sound is needed. It has a good clean sound but when you push the button for boost the level is much higher since it uses a higher gain to overdrive for distortion.
Ease of Use:
Fairly simple amp, not much to do here.
It has not given me any problems such as turning its self off from extended playing like some integrated amplifiers do.
