I bought this solely as a small practice amp, after having a couple of Frontman 15R (Series I and II) amps solely for practice in the past (and selling them cheap to friends for their kids). I never had any problems with the Frontmans, and I liked the basic spring reverb that they had. At first, I didn't like the Bullet's 3-levels of (digital) reverb, but I got used to that, and it is quieter than the Frontman spring reverb at comparable levels. And I began to appreciate the other effects as well, especially the slapback delay (rockabilly) and the slower of the two tremolo speeds. Basic clean, and with some distortion dialed in, it is much like my old Frontmans (not sure that the core circuits are any different - never A-B'ed them - the Bullet is supposed to have Dyna Touch III circuitry but that could be marketing hype) - it sounds great for what it is (a low watt, low cost practice amp). I have played an American Strats and an Epi Elitist Les Paul through it. My biggest gripes about this amp (the the 2nd series Frontman) are the flimsy pots - they may be sturdier than they feel - but they do function fine so far. Also, it would be a big help if the digital effects pot had detents, because the label print is small and there are no reference marks for the two or three sub-variations on each effect. But eventually you get used to what is where and find several preferred settings. It would also be nice if the stereo RCA Aux In jacks has a simple level control - the volume controls do not control the level of this input - but there are ways around that (such as the headphone out level on your CD player, or a level out control on a drum machine). If I was paying the original full street price, I would have spent a bit more for a Champion. At the closeout price, this is a bargain.

The Clean Chanel sounds okay. Not stellar,but passable. Some of the effects have somewierd artifacts in the background. The ampis loud for 15 watts. The Gain Chanel is awful.It sounds almost as bad as those crappy red-knobsolid state amps Fender made many years ago.It is grainy and harsh. It sounds nothing likea tube amp, either Marshall or Fender. The Marshall AVTs with their tube preamp blow thisthing away, but they are much more expensive.My Roland MicroCube sounds so much superiorto the Bullet 150, I almost can't wrap my headaround it. It has a 5" speaker for crying outloud, but it sounds SWEET. I'd definitely recomendsomething from the Roland Cube series over thisamp hands down. I sent the Bullet back.

Surprisingly wonderful practice amp

By Jimmy

from Madison, WI

See all my reviews

Ask me a question

Didn't really know what to expect. But this little fella has tone and guts. The dsp effects are pretty good and an added bonus. The small size makes it ideal for a bedroom or office amp. I bought it half expecting to return it -- but it's found a home. No one will ever mistake the Bullet 150 for a Vibro-King -- but for what it is it fully meets expectations and does the job. Who among us would not be happy with that evaluation!?!?

Big thing in a small package

By Berto2112

from Lincolnshire, IL

I got this amp and from the moment I plugged it in I was simply amazed by how loud the little sucker could get! This is my first amp and considering that it is quite good. It gives me very decent tone for low price and it's nice and compact. I recommend it for beginners and people looking for a nice little practice amp.

nice price not nice gain channel

By les is more double dj

from narrowsburg,ny

this amp has very nice effects except the gain/distrotion/overdrive channel that sounds likes a metal rake on pavement.even at low levels it is barely usable.i have tried 2 different guitars and 2 different cables and i get the same response,a weird hum/scratching noise.for the bucks you can use the other features well,too bad the gain/distortion channel is a waste espec.for a metal hard rock or punk/hardcore player.

Nice amp for under a buck

By Bluesmann

from Waterford, MI

See all my reviews

I bought this for practicing at home at lower volumes. The effects are actually pretty good. Not stellar but good. For a little amp, this thing can actually get awefully loud! I was very surprised at the volume from such a small box. The headphone jack and Tape/CD input jacks allow you to jam to recorded music without disturbing anyone. For under a buck, this little guy is pretty nice!

Great little first amp

By TimH1955

from PETALUMA, CA

See all my reviews

Especially at the special price of < $**. The dsp effects are very good, the 15w output is more than sufficient for practice or a garage band and it has surprisingly good tone. Don't care too much for the cheesey Bullet 150 emblem tho. I pedal to switch between effects would be much better than the current knob.

Wow !!

By Aguy

from Va- North Carolina line

What a hot little house amp, this thing smokes !! A very clean clean channell. The overdrive channell is hot, bang the notes out and she gets going like a tuber. Great effects too, flanger chorus reverb, add a little bit of overdrive and some reverb, ya got a blues sound that cant be beat.

Excellent small amp

By Lost Frogs Records

from Nashville TN suburb

Quite a bargain at this closeout price. I have had one for over a month now and I'm considering getting another for stereo work. This is not a nightclub amp, but an all around workhorse for practicing, songwriting, jamming, and very small venues. This unit will spank when cranked. It sounds like a Fender. The DSP effects are good enough, not as useable as I'd like without a selection pedal, but I leave mine on a basic reverb and use outboard effects for the rest. But even without the DSP effects this amp is well worth the price. Definite bargain, great sound and power. Quite collectible too in my opinion, it looks great (I removed the gaudy Bullet 150 Badge).

great amp!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Ok, I got this thing abeut a year ago, and the clean rocks.The effects are proffesional quality.The only reason there wern't 10's up and down, were because of the distortion. My advice; get a low price, good sounding pedal. Maybe a fab metal, or if you can spare the cash, a boss mt-2 metal zone, like I got. Theres plenty of power in this puppy, and it would be great for small gigs. For bigger ones, mic it and you'll be happy. for recording, just put a line through the phones jack. it works fine. Overall, great amp!
