Great amp if you have a modeling guitar processor
Dusko, 30.12.2014
The price certainly shows how much you can get from this amp. I find it ok when playing through my Digitech multi effect processor but on its own it doesnt sound that great on my single coil start like cheap guitar. Maybe with better pickups this amp could sound better. It can be very very loud which is great! All in all good for those just getting into playing and are not sure they will continue playing.

EDIT; I have bought a new Harley Benton guitar (L-450 Plus) and that guitar makes some very good sound through this amp. In my previous review I wrote that this amp doesnt sound so good but that was only the matter of the cheap guitar pickups I had on my old guitar. This new guitar has Wilkinson alnico humbuckers and boy does that make a difference! The amp does sound thin still but most small amps do sound thin and for the fat sound one should look into a tube apm or some stronger wattage amps. I will keep this amp as my practice amp for sure. Absolutely good buy!

EDIT No.2; After playing with it for a year now I have finally found the sweet spot on this 15 watts amp; I know now why it sounded too thin! When I turn the Bass to the maximum 10 and the treble to about 8 to 9 this amp sounds much warmer and the harshness goes away. On top of that if one plays a bit with the volume pots on the guitar one gets extra warmth to it. I also now keep the Level on 10 full on and the gain is on the minimum (start of the Clean). I always play through my Digitech RP70 for effects so no need to use the Gain for overdrive or distortion. Great buy indeed once you find the right settings.

Excellent beginner amplifier
jimdandy, 21.10.2013
Small but not too light and not too flimsy. Better than many of the other micro amps.

It's cabinet is made of MDF which contributes to a real sounding amplifier. Build very well and the protectors around it make it great for people who just aren't that careful!

Soundwise; I could dial in a clear sound, and was much more pleasing than i was expecting. The gain control was a little too sensitive for my liking, but then I prefer a very clean sound. You can go from clean to very distorted (heavy metal sounds), which although aren't my specific preference, but are perfectly adequate for a solid state amplifier. Shame there's no reverb but at this price point there wouldn't be. You could always add a pedal.

Overall this is best suited to the bedroom player due to it's compact size. For the price it would make an excellent present for a beginner or someone conscious of space
