First Digital ANYTHING I liked. Pure fun from one preset to the next. Idiotically simple to use, reprogram, whatever. Virtually EVERY feature I could ever think of for basic music-making. Features = 9 not 10 ONLY because you need to make/dig up a stereo cable to use the headphone jack as a LINE OUT - preamp. They don't advertise it that way but it is a PERFECT stereo preamp. It is DEAD QUIET. The amp part is just a bonus. I thought I would miss the knobs but I don't much. This thing is a fantastic bargain, lightyears past any other small amp/preamp/POD thing out there. It doesn't necessarily have "vintage" tones - just interesting ones. You can put your own label on 'em, I just use 'em!
I think it was an ok amp for its valuebut the quality was bad.
I have been playing the acoustic guitar for about 17 years, and just got my first electric. I got this little amp to play with my new Dean Evo XM and have been impressed. The 80 presets on this amp are great tutorials for how the different effects color sound. Pick a preset that sounds interesting, and dial through the effects settings to see how they get that sound. In one weekend of playing and listening to the effects, I can pretty much set up the sounds I want. Playing this amp using stereo headphones is a blast, and makes even my mediocre playing sound like a CD.I also used this amp with my Seagull acoustic this weekend at church to add a little chorus and room reverb, and it sounded great. I used the stereo line out on the back of the amp to take a signal to the PA and it seemed to work well, but if the effect was a stereo effect (like ping-pong), I think you would only get the "right" side signal through this output. If the effect is mono (like chorus), however, it probabaly doesn't matter. I'm still trying to figure out the output thing. You can always use the headphone jack with a TRS plug to go to the board to get both left and right signals, but using the headphone jack shuts off the amp's speaker, so you will need a separate monitor if playing live.The only negative thing I have to say so far about the amp is that when you turn the amp off with the rocker switch, there is a pop through the speaker. I don't think it is loud enough to damage the speaker, but it is certainly not silent.All in all, the features, portability, sound, price, and ease of use of this amp make it a "10" in my book.
This amp totally Rocks. With 40 effects and 80 programs, this is crazy. The sound is amazing and loud. You want clear, you've got it; you want distortion, you've got it. Take it to your small gig or practice. Moreover, you can get it cheap with great sound and great effects. Most BUY!!
