I had wrote a bad review when I first got this because of the feedback. But the main thing is don't crank it up all the way in close quarters, like standing right in front of it. The main thing is the price. (Or was) I got it when it was on sale a couple of months ago, and recently I got a Behringer Firebird 15 watt while it was still on sale. So I got them both for about the price of one 15 watt name brand amp. I'm not worried about the distortion (although it sounds alright) because I plug them both into my Korg Toneworks for some neat stereo chorus and delay effects. You get two little amps cranked up and you can definitely make some noise. Of course if you're going up against a Marshall stack and a skin-pounding drummer you're going to have to get a few more little amps. A wall of practice amps! At least you can carry them around without being a weight lifter.

My brother bought this amp as his first, about six months after he first picked up guitar. This was about six months ago now. At the time, I new nothing about guitars, but when he first got it, together with an Arion Metal Master distortion pedal and a Squier SG clone, I was completely unimpressed. Now, since I knew nothing about guitars (though I did have considerable experience with other instruments- violin and percussion), I had basically expected professional quality sound. Of course I was wrong to expect that; you would need to shell out a few hundred more for that. But over time, as I started playing guitar myself, I realized that this was, actually, pretty bad no matter what your standards.Now, the clean channel is actually pretty good. The EQ, while not great, does allow some tone shaping (especially with my guitar, an Epi LP standard- the Squier sg is much more limited), when combined with the guitar's tone controls. It's the distortion I'm complaining about. This is pretty awful. You either get a muddy tone, or one with too much static. Neither is remotely suitable for metal.On to the quality. This amp looks vintage, in fact it is fairly nice looking. On the outside, there's nothing terribly shoddy about it. But after six months, this thing is going. The front pickups no longer work with it on either my guitar or my brother's (and its fine on other amps). Now it's starting to fuzz out with both pickups, and just today I noticed a constant background static, no matter what settings.In short, if this is your first amp, and you don't plan on using it for hard rock, then alright. It does have good volume for its size and price, and the clean channel is fine, you can get some really bassy sounds there.

Beginner amp for good money

By Kiril

from Houston, TX

See all my reviews

This amp is built very sturdily, but overall save your money for something better. In the sound department, it can get pretty loud but it doesnt have the thick and full tone a person playing guitar for a while would want. The overdrive isn't good at all and when you play chords you can barley hear the notes. The tone knobs on it don't work too well either. If you crank it up it sounds like its on distortion, which is bad. Alot of feedback when on high gain and volume. Thats it!

drive amp (update)

By Ricky-ZyxPS

from Fairfax, VA

After playing with this amp for 1 year, I started to notice how "average" this amp was. When I was a beginner I thought this was an amazing amp. Don't get me wrong, this amp doesn't suck, but it's only good for beginners. The distortion is pretty good as long as your gain isn't too high. The clean channel is decent but at times, it has the distortion leaking through. It is however LOUD for a 20W. I played 4 gigs with it and it did quite well. Overall, if you want a beginning amp thats loud and has medicore distortion/clean buy this. If not I would recommend something else like a Crate or Marshall.

Awesome Beginning Amp

By gtrst

from Renton, WA

This is the best amp I have ever used at this size. And it's size is great. It's small enough to carry and big enough to deliver a great sound, distorion channel or not.

Nice Practice Amp

By Tres Layton

I bought this amp a little while ago because of its cheap price tag. I didn't expect too much of it, though because it is a Drive brand amp, and it seemed pretty cheep to me. When I plugged it in and played on it with my friend's Les Paul, it sounded great! The clean sounds smooth and the gain can be controlled by a knob that selects how much distortion you want. Overall value is hard to beat.

Nice little garage (or maybe even club?) amp

By Niwradx

from New Jersey

See all my reviews

Makes a great practice amp and by playing with the controls I can get most of the sounds I want for my "garage band". Gets over the drums easily and gives me decent cleans (have to turn the volume up compared to the drive channel, though) and enough drive to make a point.

better than some fenders

By wsh03370

from Orchard Park, NY

this was my first amp. It works great, you would be surprised at how loud it will get. It does not distort significantly at high volumes but the lead channel isn't that great and there is some slight backgroung buzzing when you dont play. I "upgraded" to a Fender Acoustasonic, and ditched it b/c it distorted at higher volumes, the Drive was able to play louder w/out problems. THIS AMP IS WELL WORTH THE MONEY.

Pigs sound better

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This amp is not very good. My friend has one and it is a pain in the neck. It broke about five times and spends more money fixing it then he he used to by it. As a bassist and a guitarist, the best deals are found with Boss and Roland.

WOW...WOW...WOW...WOW!!! That's all I can say. For only 20Watts, this amp is crazy loud. Buy it now if you are debating between amps. It's a sure guarantee that you WILL be pleased!

Nice little practice amp

By Country Juction

I bought this little amp so I would not have to take my big Fender out every time I wanted to mess around. I am very impressed with the quality of it's output, crisp and clean. It also has excelent tone control for the price.

I bought this amp with an Ibanez GSA20 about six mmonths ago as my first electric guitar. The is pretty small but packs a huge sound. I can only turn the volume up to half before it is way too loud. It plays awesome with the Ibanez, and it has very decent onboard distortion. This is about the best amp you can find for this cheap, and I would have gladly paid more for it. It's a very impressive little amp.
