I picked up one of these this weekend. After spending my wad on a nice guitar, I didn't have much left for a good amp. Also, I travel and need a dual voltage 110v/220v amp. NONE of the amps were dual voltage. So I decided go go for a battery powered amp to get by for a while. I'm impressed with this amp. It has a great clean channel and the distortion channel is impressive too. This small amp has a 3 inch speaker instead of a 2 inch speaker like most tiny amps. I was impressed how it sounded with my Telecaster, but it did have some hum in distortion mode. My friend played it yesterday with his Applause electric/acoustic and it sounded amazing. For a cheap amp, you can't go wrong with this one. Also, the belt clip is metal and very durable. At first I thought the clear blue case looked cheap, but now I think it's kind of cool. So far I played it for 5 days with the same battery. I recomend this amp if you are looking for something portable and cheap that still sounds good.

First of all let me compliment Musicians Friend on fast delivery. Even to an APO address I had the GT1000 in 5 days.I am returning the GT1000. Although in fairness to the amp, I never used it with headphones ( IF it was listed in the product description that you needed a 1/4" headphone jack, I missed it. Hard to find overseas)I could not get a clean sound except by playing scales. Any kind of chord work, even at barely audible volumes was all mud, no matter what adjustments I made with tone and volume or pick up selectors ( I am playing a B.C. Rich with dual humbuckers)May be great with headphones, but with the speaker alone nothing but mud. Please be aware you will need a 1/4" headphone adaptor for use with headphones.

Not Bad At All.

By AHOLE22

from Detroit

I bought this a few weeks ago to play around with. I plugged it in and the clean sound was actually pretty decent. No pops, excessive gain or the likeness. The overdrive setting, however, isn't all that great. I run a boss distortion pedal through it to get a decent crunch out of it. Not the best rig you're gonna set up, but all in all, it was well worth the money I paid for it.

Good stuff

By Rewiewman1000

from Nebraska

The Dean Markley GT1000 Micro Amp is a great amp for beginners. Personally I bought it to use it as a preamp. MY setup is ESP F-50 > crybaby > rocktron hush > Dean Markley GT1000 Micro Amp > Ibanez DS7 > DigiTech RP-50 > Mixer > Marshall Full Stack. It works well as a preamp if your tight on cash and space. Overall it a good product.

okay

By matt burleson

from spruce pine,nc

i bought one of these from my local pawn shop and the one i bought came with a tuner. overall i must say this is a great amp for beginners and practicing,but when the battery starts to die it becomes fuzzy,it is very durable,however,i would recomend buy one without a tuner and just buy a separate tuner because the tuner is to easily distorted.

not bad, not bad

By Charles-Qxwgf

I would recommend this little guy more for people who are going to play single coils through it and aren't looking for heavy overdrive. The response of the overdrive circuit is not what you'd call smooth and creamy, instead after a point it goes to muddy. With humbuckers it's a little hard to stay below that place where crunch turns to mud. Also with a 2 inch speaker to get any kind of a warm sound you'd need single coils. All that being said, for the price, you really can't complain. I also recommend adding the danelectro fab echo for some depth, I found they sound good together.

good little amp.

By mocking bird special.

I bought this amp about three years ago and its been great. I usualy use the overdrive with the volume hi, I sit down and put the amp face down on my leg and it sounds realy bluesy ,I have droped it many times and its still fine. Its plenty loud for practice.

Rockin Little Practice Amp!

By The Shredding Shepard

from Virginia

A Great amp for practice! Wow. This amp has some good sound. All it takes is some tinkering with the dials and pickup selector on your guitar. All you have to do to get a good distortion tone is put volume on about 9ish, put tone on 1ish, tone and volume on guitar at max, and whatever pickup you want. Clean channel is good too! Just put volume on half, tone on max, and on your guitar: Neck pickup, max tone, 8 volume. (im playing a squier affinity strat) The belt hook is good too, because it dosent bend or break. I would highly reccomend this amp to take on vacation, in the car, the beach, the tailgate party, etc... By the way the baterrys last forever on this thing. Buy the GT1000 now!

Great little amp. Perfect for what I needed

By Slappy P.

from Richmond VA

I picked this up at a local guitar store, duct-taped it to a guitar strap and plugged it into my guitar. It has a decent clean tone. And some really nice distortion. I actually found a cool little trick with the amp. I taped some craft foam in front of the speaker grill and just use the volume as a gain control. Let me tell you this little thing can get some good distortion. Just enough for what I play. I have had it for about a year now and its still great.
