For the price its great
Paul592, 12.10.2017
I was pleasantly surprised about everything about this amp. It feels very solid and its nice and loud on battery mode (I play with a 14 piece busking band and this can cut through).

The sound is fairly nice too especially the clean channel. The chorus and delay are ok but nothing special, they are still nice to have.

The distortion channel on the other hand leaves some to be desired. It is quite grainy and I usually just max out my favourite mid frequency and kill the highs and lows. It would be nice for metal though lol. Plenty of gain ceiling and the bass is actually pretty good out of the 6.5" speaker.

Overall for the price its fantastic.

The low-budget bargain that does the job
Michael9249, 03.12.2013
Definitely recommend getting long life rechargeable batteries and a charger as ordinary batteries may adversely effect this equipment. You can switch between two guitar channels. The mic channel has few options. Volume up or volume down.

There are other better quality and more sophisticated products available but they cost a lot more money.

If you need a convenient, affordable & portable way to amplify guitar and vocals. It does the job!

A great value busking amp!
Les C., 13.01.2015
I bought this as an inexpensive amp to go busking with. Firstly, on delivery I found the build quality to be great for the price. The ability to recharge the AA batteries (not supplied) by plugging the amp into the mains is a great feature. As for the sound of the amp the tone is very decent. The comprehensive tone controls do a good job. I tend to use the amp mostly to amplify an electro acoustic, but the distortion, when I have plugged in an electric is good. One modification that I've recently made is to replace the speaker (which is voiced more for electric guitar) with an inexpensive full range JBL car stereo speaker (I'm sure that this will void the warranty!). The new speaker was an exact fit and has turned the amp into a fantastic busking amp - to my ears rivalling amps that cost a whole lot more!

Harley Benton CG-10X Street
Andrew4614, 15.03.2015
A few weeks ago by trusty little Vox battery amp gave up the ghost. The cost of repair was higher than buying a new one. Playing mostly acoustic guitar along with vocals, the only real effects I need are reverb and a touch of chorus. I looked at loads. The Roland Street cubes are great, but very expensive for my budget, and few other amps did exactly what I need but this one. Construction is solid, as are the control dials, the sound is accurate and surprisingly loud. The reverb and chorus add a little hiss to the sound, but in practice that's never heard. Only two small gripes. No handle is supplied and the screws that hold a handle in place (I am using a leather belt) very quickly pulled out of the screw holes. I have now fitted longer, thicker screws. Overall this is amazing for the money. Just what a busker needs, and nice and light too!!!

Used for busking
A.R.K., 14.11.2018
I bought this amp for street performances in Portugal. A plus: it's sturdy, and made four flights in a cloth-covered suitcase without any problem. I also appreciate having the mic and guitar channel in one amp. Without that feature, it's not much use for busking.

The sound is so-so when on battery power. It didn't take much input to sound overloaded compared with my Vox Mini5 which supposedly has a lower wattage rating.

The big let-down was that it depletes batteries even when switched off. This meant that I had to have the amp on the charger right up until the time when I went out to play.

Portable Amp
ccc, 05.11.2013
I bought the Harley Benton CG-10x Street for playing my guitars on holidays. I wanted something easy, small and also battery powered. For that price and for the features I won't go back. It's exactly what I wanted. Not too much different from its (more expensive) competitors. Well built, two channels (the Channel B with Gain pot is not really great but can be nice if you tweak the EQ on the basses), two effects (delay and chorus with just one knob each) and a good EQ which is necessary to get the best even in small bedrooms. Has the name suggest could be nice even for busking even though it's probably not the loudest model so better choose the place carefully. Overall it's a great piece of equipment if you want to play your guitars everywhere without worrying about bringing expensive and heavy amps. Highly suggested for starters too.

Nice amp for home and street
Urpo, 02.01.2014
This small street amp works well with guitar, mic and background files (mp3) from my phone. With reloadable batteries it gives 5 W and with power cord 10 W.
Some adjustments have to be made in order to use this during street gigs.

The overall quality is enough, but not so convincing. Fair value for price.
There is no separate pedal connection, but the main effects for accompany and/or solo playing are there.

Will see how the reloadable NiMH batteries will function in near future (

Worth the money, but may save for better Cubes at $100
04.03.2015
The distortion and the effects are unremarkable. What surprises me is that it is a really good acoustic amp (although the frequency response may not be so flat). I played my Martin OOX1AE through it and could not be more satisfied!

My flat is tiny, so now I only use this amp as a monitor using the aux line in. The base noise level is pretty annoying, even without any input signal, with all the knob turned down.

If you want an amp for electric guitar, there is other much better options: the microcube and the vox mini series. Yes you have to spend a bit more, but it's worth it.
