Easy to dial-in and program, lightweight, basic/decent look, sounds great, has a crazy amount of tones and effects at the twist of a knob, well made (people breaking these things, must be harsh on them, banging them around, yanking cables, etc.), and at clearance pricing.... it's dirt cheap! The only thing lacking, is that almost all of the distortion tones sound rather similar, and unfortunately rather muddy when you turn the gain value up. However, it's not because of the amp.... it's the cruddy stock speaker! Buy a Celestion and be amazed at how much better it sounds. Don't believe me or don't want to spend the extra money? Use the aux speaker output and run the combo (as a head unit) into your favorite cab........ or try running it direct for recording. I own the Wildfire 60, but I've played them all, and with the exception of a few extra features, the 15, 30, and 60, are all the same. This is, by far, the best modeling amp you can buy for anywhere near $100 bucks. If it had a 12AX7 in the pre-amp, it would be perfect.

This is probably not going to be pleasant to the ears of the creators of this thing but these are by far the worst effects I have ever heard. The distortion reminds me of the days when I was 15 or so and would plug my guitar into my computer and record myself. I got this awfull sounding distortion but at the time I thought it was great. That's pretty much what you get with this amp. It's bad, real bad. I do like this amp because it is loud though. Very loud! It CAN rock your socks off, just not with the effects that come with this amp. I use a Digitech RPx400 and a Boss Metal Zone MT-2 for all my distortion rock needs as well as the little bit of jazz that I play. When used with this amp, it sounds great! The amp does come with other effects such as chorus, acoustic, and what not but a LARGE majority of the effects are really bad. Honestly though, I can't even compare the effects with anything because they are so low quality. To sum it all up, I recommend this amp for anyone wanting a really loud amp at a cheap price. And I do not recommend this for any of it's effects features. It does have a stereo output jack which I have used and it works great. Oh, and when your guitar is plugged straight in and you have all effects turned off, it does have a decent tone to it. Real warm but does crackle a little when you strum the highs hard.

Great! Buy this amp!

By GibsonLPlayer502

from Frankfort, KY

I love this amp. I just got it recently, but I have played with it constantly. I love all the effects and most of them sound wonderful. I am an intermediate guitar player and this is a perfect amp, especially for the low price. Overall, I just advise you to buy the amp, no matter what your skill level is.

Good practice amp

By FHmetalguitarist

from Sanford, NC

This is a good amp to practice with, or if you are a beginner to start out with. It has a good amount of effects, the only problem is, it's alittle hard to program then. It took me a few days to figure it all out. But I do not like the distortion, but that doesn't really matter to me since I have a pedal for that. Overall its a pretty good amp to practice with, or play at a friends house, but since it is only 30 watts it isn't very loud at all.

Great features for an amp in this range.

By NowhereMan1040

from CT

I've owned this amp for about a month, and while it took a while to get the settings exactly where I wanted them, it sounds great now. I like the fact that I can couple this amp to another one and get the effects in stereo. I usually use a stereo setup anyway, so this is a great feature in a practice amp. The external speaker jack is nice to have in a light weight amp as well. The preset effects are useless for me, but I just start from straight signal and add what I want. Unlike most other multi-effect practice amps, you can use three effects simultaneously with compression and speaker modeling. In small venues this amp is pretty loud, but it's not meant to be a rock 'n roll powerhouse. It's just a great practice amp.

No probs here

By Whoknu?

from Central Mississippi

I've had the spitfire(now wildfire) for about 8 months now, and it has been a great little amp for what I paid for it(on clearance). No, the effects aren't stellar for a tone freak, but they are functional, and can sound right decent when you play with the effects chain order. I've had no problems with the input jack, no problems with overheating. The only thing I'd like to see in this amp is more clean tone options and a 3-band eq. Mine has been great for me so far at my small weekly gig.

Awsome Amp

By Zach Sweetland

from Belle Plaine, MN

I absolutely love this amp, my old amp (fender frontman 15) doesn't even come close. I only had one problem with this amp, whenever i change the effect, the amp just decides to go down in volume, but that's all good, my favorite thing about this amp is the cab effect or whatever you call it, it makes me twice as loud than usual.I recommend this amp to anyone in a 3 man band.

Okay amp for a beginner

By lporec4life

from newnan, GA

I have had this amp for a few months now. It is an okay amp but is not really all i expected. It has good effects, however it doesn't have all the versatility i was expecting. It has good sound when played with no or acoustic distortion and has good heavy metal and hard rock distortion but nothing for in between (a major problem for me because I play a lot of Classic Rock). Also, if you crank up the volume to high on any heavy distortion setting for longer than a few minutes, it will overheat and shut down (majorly annoying).Overall, this amp is not bad for a beginning guitarist, but if you are an intermediate or advanced level guitarist, I seriously suggest you do not get this amp. It is good for the money but if you are able to save up some more money for a better quality amp then it would definitely be worth your while.

ok, no

By vic-LOKfc

from Jackson, MI

i had this about for a year, problems.... where to start, first making effects is a hassle. its just to confusing trying to figure out what meens what, prepare to take some time to make at least desent effects. the effects are good like every thing else but the dis is just too muddy and even if you get it to sound some what good your going to get ALOT of feed back, o and dont for get the annoying hum. not very loud at all eithere. the inputes are plastic! i had to super glue them after what they do, then my main input "guitar in" broke i have to open it to pluge any thing in. i got this as my first amp cuz i was just starting out and i didnt have that much many, and had no idea about amps, now that iv been playing and know i have gotten better things and this doesnt cut it. i use mine for a mic amp, it works well for that lol. what will use your for? a table?
