You can't beat the price
Peter1189, 11.02.2020
A very good mini amp for the money you pay, especially if you compare with the other brands on the market.

Lets face it its not about the sound quality but in this case you have a loud amp with bearable sound output. The only problem is the speaker but you can't have everything.

Overall this mini amp will get the job done!

Cheapest amp...

It has a build in "Overdrive" but it feels like just turning your tome nob fully open but, I liked the quality... it is well made and i feel like it will not fall apart after a week of using.

Inexpensive, battery powered, inexpensive, very portable, and inexpensive
T. Escobedo, 02.06.2019
This tiny amplifier is a VERY close copy of the Marshall MS-2, cosmetically, and electronically. The circuit is almost identical, using a LA4140 power amp IC driving a 8 Ohm 3 inch speaker. Three identically functioning knobs and a rear mounted pocket clip. Construction is very much in line with the price, rigid injection molded plastic. Sound is pretty one dimensional, lo-fi and distorted and not much more. The Power knob is a three position switch, Off, On, and OD, presumably for "Overdrive". The On position is somewhat clean-ish at best. The OD position is pretty distorted. The amp is fairly quiet overall, even inOD mode with the volume cranked. Loud enough to annoy a roommate, but that's about all. The On setting I find not very useful. Better to just use OD, crank the Volume control all the way up, and use the guitar's volume control to control the amount of distortion-simple and effective. The Tone knob isn't all that useful. Despite the published rating of 5 Watts, this amp is nowhere near that. Maybe 0.5 Watts at most, fully distorted. Versatile this amp is not. It does one thing. And it does it cheaply. That's what you pay for, and that's what you'll get. Whether that one thing is useful is entirely up to you. If you're in the market for the Marshall MS-2, buy this one instead. If you're looking for a tiny bit more versatility and clean sounds to drive a small loudspeaker, you'll have to look elsewhere and probably have to pay significantly more.

Just bad
energydrank, 27.09.2018
The amp Which is just a little amp i will be using for a few months until i get back home, where i will store this and use it sometimes going outside and attach it to my guitar strap.

The sound overall is Okay, for the few bucks you can get it for it sounds good, there are not real features, and the overdrive is very poor when you do not want to blast out your own ears while it is hooked onto your guitar strap.

Pro's:
-Small size
-Battery life is pretty good

Con's:
-sound is pretty okay but not great.
-feels cheap

Would i recommend it? Depends, if you are just going to use it as a fun little amp you can easily take with you to amuse some friends, yeah sure, as a little practice amp you can take on the road? No, you're better off getting a Boss Katana Air in that case.
