Joyo Bantamps are tiny (very tiny, actually) 2 channel hybrid amps, with a valve in the preamplification circuit and a solid state 20W power stage.
They come in all sorts of flavours, made to emulate famous amps, and let's face it, being as expensive as a good but not particularly high end distortion pedal, the temptation to collect them is very real and very dangerous... :)
the MeteOR (OR is for Orange, just to make things clear) is clearly inspired to the Rockerverb, and makes a quite good impression of its dirt channel, with a pretty wide gain range - from break-up to metal.
the clean channel breaks up nicely and a lot of character.
as always there's no way to change channels with a footswitch (Joyo is correcting the issue with the new Bantamps, but as far as i know the only v2 amp at the moment is the ZoMBie...)
both channels share the same gain, volume and eq (that is not an eq, by the way, but a tone control).
the tone, like the gain, is very usable across its whole range - there's no useless setting.
there's a bluetooth connection to practice along songs, but i never used it, and - last but not least - an fx loop.
now there's a bunch of obvious questions:
1) is the MeteOR loud enough to play with a band? yes. its 20W are no joke, solid state or not. rehearsals, even gigs (with a microphone in front of the cab, obviously) are not a problem
2) is it a viable bedroom amp? yes. it sounds pretty good at very low volumes, so can be comfortably used at home
3) what's the point of buying a Joyo "inspired by Orange" micro amp when there are TWO proper Orange 20 W micro amps in the same price range?
well... there's definitely a point. the Micro Terror is a low-ish gain single channel amp without an fx loop, while the Micro Dark has even more gain than the MeteOR but is still a single channel amp, and is voiced loosely like the Dark series amps, while the MeteOR is definitely more in Rockerverb territory, and is more versatile (thanks to the 2 channels).
it's tiny, it's fun, cute and cheap. if you want a backup for your Orange amps - or simply like that peculiar flavour of british high gain there's really no reason not to buy it!
