You get what you pay for
Lucien Tyrell, 13.12.2019
I primarily bought this to use with a looper pedal for breaking in new speakers without burning through my tube amps. For this, it's been absolutely perfect. Crank the amp, play for a bit and then loop it for 8 hours a day through a new cabinet. It's only 5 watts, but it's still loud enough to get the speakers moving (still a lot quieter than a 5 watt tube amp, of course).

The positives: you can plug it into any cab regardless of ohms, which is convenient. It's tiny and you can practically fit it in your guitar case. Seems well-built, for what it is.

The negatives: it really doesn't sound all that great, but that is not to be expected for this type of toy amp. Also, playing through headphones sounds awful, really. It works, but the sound is atrocious.

very nice
Iannnis, 10.03.2015
this was kind of a surprise. such a small amp (5w), yet so loud. the sound is supposed to be an approximation to the vox ac30, and does a really fine job of it.
the eq and the gain stage are extremely responsive, as it should be. there are even more goodies in the guise of an fx-loop, aux in and line-out. plus it takes pedals in front like a charm, with none of that digital harshness (i.e. the fender g-dec thirty).
it's perfect for home practice and maybe even for band practice, if the drummer isn't too loud!

p.s. i've had this for some years now and it's my most played home amp. consider if you will, that i also have a fender g-dec thirty, and a marshall 25-50 jubily all tube combo with 2x12, which is my holy grail!
i guess this makes my comment above more poignant, or?

Great amp for the size!
12.04.2015
Don't be put off by the tiny size of this amp when you take it out of the box - it packs a punch and sounds great. I've tried it with a 1x12 cab and it's capable of putting out enough volume to disturb the neighbours. Ideal for home practice, maybe even with a band if the volume is kept down. At 5w this amp will not be suitable for your next stadium gig, but it's plenty loud in the home.
The HoTone Nano Legacy British Invasion has a range of great sounds, producing some nice clean tones and a nice crunchy overdriven sound at higher gain. The three band EQ is very sensitive, so it's easy to dial in a variety of tones.
The build quality seems solid and the amp looks great - don't be embarrassed by the size!
It will handle a 4 to 16 Ohm load, and it also has a headphone socket, a line-in for mp3 players, and an FX-loop. It takes pedals well in front of the amp, I haven't tried the FX-loop though.
All in all this amp is really good value for money and I really like it. HoTone seem to be a very good brand and I will be trying other amps in this range. Recommended as a great practice amp!

fantastic amp!
Dr Ohmtron, 17.06.2020
for what it is i'm quite pleased. driving my 2x12 recycled Vox Valvetronix speaker box @ 8 ohms it sounds great. full sound, not too loud it 'can' irritate the neighbors but probably won't.

one minor issue is that it makes a popping noise when it's switched on however that is kind of normal.

otherwise this amp provides a pleasant, warm sound. nice distortion as well. very usable.
