I encouraged my friend and rhythm guitarist to buy this amp as a cheap upgrade to his Rogue. I was expecting a decent sound, but I was surprised to find an amp that sounds better than my late 60's vintage Ampeg, and a 40 watt Marshall tube amp that I played with. I'm trying to scale down the equipment I use on our gigs so I am cutting my Ampeg loose and I'm buying this amp. I plan on using a Shure 57 to mic the amp. The distortion isn't quite enough for my style of leads, so I'm going to run my Digitech GSP-21 Legend processor through it, or Boss Metal Zone pedal.I've been playing guitar since I was 13 years old and I've heard people trash amps like these just because it's not a Fender or a Marshall. Back in the 60s and the 70s Fender and Marshall amps weren't much better than this thing. Their quality only went up in more recent decades. And I've even played some pretty crappy sounding Marshalls, too. This amp also comes with an Eminence speaker which enhances the sound. I *MIGHT* replace it with a Celestion or Jenson in the future, but the Eminence doesn't sound bad.And believe me, for 65 watts, this thing is pretty solid. I favor it over Line 6, from which I get a lot of clipping on the clean channel. If you've got a lot of money, then go buy a Marshall for the status-symbolism. But I believe that Drive is the amp of the future, like Peavey used to be. So far, Drive makes the absolute best solid-state amp I've ever heard. Fender's Princeton '65 sounds like crap compared to this.This amp is also fairly quiet, not much background noise. I understand there can be some lemons out there, but so far I am nothing short of impressed by Drive.

I mic this amp on stage at church through a huge sound system and i have to cut it off when I'm not playing it because it starts making static noises and hums and just continually gets louder. it sounds ok otherwise (at least the clean channel does) but the drive channel is pretty weak. Also, I have to re-equalize it evrytime I change rooms. The Chorus and flanger arent very good (too intense and the rate is too fast) but the delay is very pretty but it does color your tone, but at least its a good coloring

AWSOME DEAL

By HybridGuitarist

This amp is the best for its price. Don't pay 500$ when you can get this one for much less. It is just as good as any High End Marshall amp or Fender amp.

Cheepie amp

Ask me a question

This amp isn't too bad for a beginner. The guy who said it's as good as a high end marshall must be on drugs. The clean tone isn't too bad but there's not enough eq and the drive channel can get the mosquito tone thing going. It's about the thinnest sounding 12" speaker I've ever heard. Buy a Fender instead.

Great Amp!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This amp is great for beginners and expierenced. The distortion is awesome, it gives a nice crunch and screeching highs. The effects are good, it's all the effects i'll ever need. The only problem is that i can't switch to flange, but i don't really care because it is still a great amp.

Good stinkin amp

By NoahBalboa

from Franklin, IN

See all my reviews

This is definitely a great amp to start gigging with. It sounds amazing. Takes a little time to tweak but it's worth it. Ths distortion on this thing is one of the best i have ever heard, sounds better than the guitar on half my CDs. It's that just normal nice distortion. NO real "raging metal" crap and its not the most awesome amp for that real sublte overdrive (although that's still not too bad) i had that good solid rock/punk distiortion. It's soo beautiful. I'll just like sit there and play a g power chord and think, "man that's pretty." The clean channel is also amazing. It has a bright switch so if your guitar is kinda cheap, too, then it'll get rid of some of that cheap humbucker muddiness. But yeah, it's like very clear and the higher strings sound crisp and responsive (great for the ska). Anyhoo this is definitely worth the money. The only drawback is it's not like mind-bogglingly loud. Don't get me wrong, this thing screams and is great for clubs and stuff, but you know a 112 can only go so far. Anyway it's great...highly recommended.
