      I been using this amp for a month. The best part is, I am playing more! I am taking this thing everywhere! I read the reviews here first, and decided to go ahead and and get the Fender Mini Twin. The tone from the really small speakers is usable. As others have stated, not a lot of volume on clean tone, however, just cracking open the overdrive, boost the volume, and sounds good and pretty clean to me. I found the 9V battery is fairly short lived, maybe 6 hours before the sound degrades badly through the speakers. With headphones, the sound is very good, and seems to have longer battery time. Headphones have plenty of volume, very good tone adjustment, much better then the speakers put out, cant expect much from 2-2" speakers. I would suggest obtaining an AC adapter to use when possible. I like to use this little amp when working on vocals, has the right volume for that, and not bothering others in the house. I took the time to write this, because I think its a useful tool, and, well, a pretty neat toy.

      This is a cute amp that serves its purpose as a cute amp. On low volume and drive this thing is sounds clear, with a nice mellow overdrive. but anything louder than 2 on gain and its just too much for the speakers. It also could be that the hot HB on my blacktop Tele that's pushing this thing too hard. I got this as a decoration piece more than a functional piece of equipment. all in all, its a nice addition and great if i just want to jam on low volume.

          Comments about Fender '57 Mini Twin Amp:

          I called to purchase a Roland battery operated Cube. The operator at Musicians Friend talked me into this amp instead. Shame on me for not researching this unit more thoroughly. Volume is almost nonexistent with distortion turned to 0. I don't want any distortion, so this amp is not for me. Also, there is still some distortion with 'drive' turned down all the way. Lousy sound. Lousy volume. I now own the Roland that I had originally wanted to purchase.

                      this is just what I needed for apartment living. it will never sound like any tube amp, but has good features for something so small and does a pretty good job of faking what an old fender twin does without all the volume and warmth.

                            Works fine with 9V battery. I've tried several different AC adapters, none of which worked. Either no sound or an obnoxious static. Returned one mini twin, which was promptly replaced with another that did the same thing. Please recommend AC adapter that works with mini twin. Can't afford replacing battery every week.

                              Great little twin amp. Sounds good for just two 2" speakers. Works perfect for practicing around the house without disturbing everyone else. I was surprised at the sound quality and volume for such a tiny amp. Works preat with headphones. Cool conversation piece.

                                I have a nylon string acoustic/electric that I am playing these days. This little twin makes it a lot of fun. It is also al lot lighter than that Fender Twin I used to carry around. This one amp twin is certainly worth trying and enjoying.

DECENT SOUND FOR WHAT IT IS WITH THE 2X2 SPEAKERS AND DISTORTION ADJUST. I HAVE PLENTY OF PEDALS TO TWEAK IT WITH IF I WANT TO GET THAT INTO HEADPHONE PLAY.
