TE
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.

Great for the price
Stephen Mcphail 10.11.2018
Great miniamp for practicing in the house for when I can't be bothered setting up my full size amp, also good to use on your porch or in the yard/garden and especially for jamming along with an acoustic guitar.
The sound quality on either clean or overdrive is pretty good & surprisingly loud for this price point. Like anything else there'll be a lot better out there but you'll have to pay a substantial amount to better it.
Would be great for anyone to go with their first electric guitar if you are on a tight budget.
It does look & feel cheap but it's the sound that matters.

Small but good
TheOneForMe 17.03.2021
I bought this because I didn't want the hassle of a full scale amp and I have to say I was quite happy with the purchase. If you don't need anything professional and just need it to practice then go for it
