Well, this was my first "real" amplifier. And at the time a few years ago, it was amazing playing my squier strat through it. Much better than the SP-10 that the guitar came with. As time goes on though, you tend to get more expensive tastes. Down to the amps features: The effects loop has very poor quality, but what can you say? It's a built in loop, can't expect pedal quality and control in an amp this price. The distortion is an over glofified over drive. It doesn't do much if you're looking for that hard tone that has many people picking up guitars to immitate. This problem,however,can be fixed. Use a distortion pedal and you're good. Personaly I use a Boss ML-2 Metal Core pedal and it sounds great. Clean tones are nothing to drool over with this amplifier, but they get the job done. This amp will get fairly loud, but not without getting muddy, You really can't turn it up without sacrificing tone quality. All in all, it is a good amp, but not professional. (It does beat my Marshall MG-10 though. In tone quality, and general quality)
I've owned this amp for over a year, and there are times when recording (I have a basement home studio) when I'll use this (mic'd) for recording with both my Strat and my Ibanez ART 100.I have Crate, Fender, Roland and Ibanez amps, and this little guy has definitely carved out its own niche in my recording repertoire of sounds. Has the best "tube" crunch of any of them (running the guitar through a Digitech Blues Screamer set for "Little Dirt."Worth every penny and thousands of smiles. Buy it.
The Fx are good, the chrome knobs are cool, all the inputs and jacks are knifty, and that bright blue light when you turn it on is kinda cool too. The clean channel is good but can be a little bland depending on the settings you have on. The distortion channel is a little muddy and may not have enough bite for some metalheads. Having the Fx and the distortion on at the same time will prove to be pointless. All in all KUSTOM does make good amps, only this isn't one of them.
