In cleans with bit of drive Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers style, yes, yes. Great neck and bridge pickup moments, all good here. And Brian May? Add a booster (occasionally I used a MXR Micro Amp), and Queen u go. Very responsive EQ, and I mean VERY, specially the mids. As the AC30 did not have mids knob, the Hotone can deliver faster then the Vox, as the mids radically alter the sound and is like u r using the real AC30 on full, with the gain on 10, very fat and responsive, still I did not used the mids on full, but almost. Is it better then the AC30? Well If u have the luxury of playing at big volumes, no. Is not! If u play at home like me, is so much better then the AC30 because the Vox need volume to sound really nice, and the Hotone can give u that at very low volume, hey but If push the volume up it It can become loud and almost acoustic drums level. I played at home, 4 AM with people sleeping on other rooms, and no complaints. With the AC30 I would never sound as good, at low volume. I played it with a 2x12. Recording wise, it can sound so good, everybody will assume is valve. Again the AC30 will sing better in solos and leads, but at loud as hell volumes. The power supply is VERY good, not noisy at all. The Hotone is well built and tought. It´s not made to play with acoustic drums. Is a record gem, or play at home amp. As I could find, 100% analog. I have the Purple Wind (pure AC/DC), now this "invasion," and I want the Mojo "fender" Diamond. For sure, Marshall, Vox and Fender, should have given us this kind of amps many moons ago, but dinosaurs r slow, and I dont have much expectations, so Hotone wins. Very nice amp and absolutely deserves the price If u want that sound, at low volumes.

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?

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.

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!
