More than i exprected
Kai555, 15.06.2014
The sound quality is really good and it is even loud enough to play in a band! Assuming the drum machine is not that machine like ;)
The equalizer is sensitive and can be adjusted precisely. The overdrive channel ranges from crunch to distortion.
The built in reverb is also a nice feature, witch thickens the sound. Good for surf music.
This amp is also very good for playing at home. It has an extra audio jacket for headphones. You can also plug in another box, good for monitoring or whatever you want to do. All in all i would strongly recommend this one for beginners.

Cost Effective
Jilvir, 14.03.2019
This product is cheaper compared to any amp product. It served the purpose. Sound is nice and this product is for for smart people. This product is not only for practicing but can be used also in gigs.

If you have a nice amp and very expensive amp and you are using a sound fx, probably there is no use of your expensive amp. sound fx can make your cheap amp sounds good to, and sounds like very expensive product.

One thing that this product lack of, is there is no reverb. but I did not see also in the market or other brand that has the same as this price and has a builtin reverb feature...

Overall I'm very happy for this amp as with in the budget. I recommend this product to those having a low budget.

Harley Benton Practise amp
ToadilyInsane2, 02.05.2020
This was my first little Amp and is still working great sound etc . It is a perfect start up amp . Fairly priced and has a good output about 40watt. I used it to learn and practise on at home. It is fitted with base/mid and treble controls,foot switch connection if needed. reverb...this is spring type. Line in and out. There are at least another 5 or 6 features I haven't mentioned. Is it value for money.. Well yes it is and when the time comes as it does a bigger more high tec amp can be purchased.

Decent amp, bargain at the price.
14.01.2016
I'm using this as a practice amp, mostly for jazz so not so much scream and twang and although I'm not playing it out, it certainly has enough poke if I want to. This is a light, reasonably compact and sturdy amp and despite it's weight it doesn't sound thin - it gives a clear tone even at low volumes.

The reverb is clean and responsive and the overdrive channel gives a wide range. The equalisation is fine. The line out and phones socket is a 3.5mm rather than the 6.35mm (1/4") so you might need an adapter.

Playing through effects boxes comes out well too. It's not a massive speaker but there's a socket for you to plug one in if you want to. It's hard to beat it at the price. Very pleased with it.

Perfect for beginners
Kon303, 06.05.2021
A very good amp with sensitive equalizer, helps me play with clear low volume when i need.
Reverb is good enough for my surf riffs.
Also auto off after some minutes without use is great.
Low price for high quality.

Big sound
Billy guitarguy, 16.06.2020
I was shocked at the max sound out of this, straight out of the box, boom, nice just rolled back a touch, nice having a reverb onboard, good solid amp for practice and small venues, love it.

Orlando.zimmerman1@gmail.com, 16.04.2018
Amp has good weight will probably sound good but I should have known better than to buy a european amp cause in U.S. We are wired different. Ha ha the jokes on me. I can't hook it up?? this is totally my fault. I should have known better

This is good!
Ayyoub Lmeghribi, 24.04.2018
Well, this amp is quite good for begginers like me :) It is a good one and very well packed and finishing. The sound is great even i still don't master how to adjust the sounds.
The only thing is i didn't like is, when you switch it on it didn't work immediately, you have to keep strumming until you hear a strong annoying voice, i mean it takes some time for the amplifier to detect the guitar. another thing is when i plug the AUX cable on it, it gives really a very strong, annoying and noisy sound, it keeps in a horriby buzzing untill you plug the phone or whatever then the horrible sound stops, after that there is no problem at all and you can play comfortably as much as your heart desires :)

pros:
Sounds good clean and with overdrive (dedicated channel) The reverb button is plus. Support headphones and aux in.

cons:
Some buttons are a little hard to spin. Not a big issue.

Great amp for pratice and small band rehearsals
Omenchs, 10.10.2019
I mostly use this for practicing at home but it is OK for louder situations and can compete with a live drumset. It sounds great and work well with pedals and digital multiprocessor pedals. It is very easy to use and straighforward. It just works, sound good and is loud enough for most situations. For the price you can?t beat that!

This great little amp sound like a much bigger and more expensive amp. It totally compliments my excellent SC550 deluxe that was part of the same package. Thank you Harley Benton and thank you Thomann International.

Good for starters
08.02.2015
This is probably the best amp for low budget and a beginner player :) Very loud
Edit: Two years later and it's like new. Really good for beginners but, if youre looking for something really good then I suggest rising your budget.
