Got this badass little 1 watter a couple of days ago and I have been enjoying every moment of playing it so far. It's the perfect bedroom amp, being only 1 watt it's possible to achieve that sweet sweet tube break up at pretty low volume levels. The distorsion sounds great, nice and thick. This little box can produce more distorsion than you will ever need, it can do everything from nice mellow crunch to super saturated metal distortion. Although if you are looking for an amp with a nice crystal clear clean channel this might not be the amp for you. The cleans this amp produces are decent but since it's only 1 watt it has very very little headroom, so getting those pristine clean sounds might be a bit of a challenge.
My biggest (it's actually quite small) gripe with this amp I guess would be the EQ. It has one knob to control the EQ, and I probably wouldn't even call it a EQ. Turning the knob clockwise will take the amp from a more british type tone and turn it into a more american style. It's possible to get some great sounds with this one knob but I wouldn't have said no to a three-band EQ.
Overall a great amp and I can't recommend it enough.
