Okay, so I looked all around for an amp. I wanted something that is quiet enough to play in my room, and something that I can jam with friends or gig with if I ever get in a band. I looked all over forums and read every review I could find. I almost got a Vox AD50VT or a Crate GT212, I'm sure they are great amps, but I'm way glad I got the Kustom Quad 100. This mofo is LOUD. In my room, I can't put it past 3 without hurting my ears way bad. Everyone rags on the effects because you can't program the rate of them, but I personally think the effects are great. The flanger/reverb gives a freakin' neat techno sound, and the tremolo is also nice. Reverbs also good. You can change the level of the effect you are using, which is kinda the same thing in a way, but it limits your control on the effects. One thing that isn't too great is that you can't program which effect you want for which channel. Ex. Playing hall reverb on clean then switching to the distortion channel and using flanger won't happen unless you are right there moving the dials over. But all in all, thats about the only flaw. The clean channel is very smooth, and the option of another preamp is great. If you work with the tone knobs a bit, you can get a SPECTACULAR sound out of the clean channel. And for the distortion, I will say it is very good. If you play jazz, indie, punk, etc.. this amp has great distortion for you. I'm not so sure about metal because I don't play metal, but if the distortion isn't good enough for you on this amp, run a pedal through the clean channel and POOF, distortion like no tomorrow. But just like the clean channel, you have to work constantly with the tone knobs to dial in what you want. But once you get 'er dialed in, it is AWESOME. I'll say it again so you can hear me.. AWESOME. And the truely great thing about this amp is the speakers. The celestions are very crisp and amplify your tone VERY well. Another great thing is that if for some reason the *****' insanely loud dueling celestions isn't loud enough for you, you can buy a cab and hook it up to that and blow everyone away. Okay, this has been a reeeaaally long review. Thank you for reading and I hope you get this amp because you won't regret it.

So I bought this a couple years ago. For awhile it was fine, with a better clean tone than I expected. It also has an overdriven channel, which always sounded fairly awful. The digital effects are surprisingly decent, but obviously no match for pedals; however, I won't hold that against the amp. Then, after a year and a half of ownership, the overdrive channel just gave out. It now plays at a small fraction of the volume it should, for reasons beyond me. So basically, I spent a bunch of money for a year and a half of use of a not-great amp which is now pretty hard to sell, even to trade-in, and isn't worth my money to fix. My advice, therefore, is to avoid it. I guess it's okay on its own merits, but for this amount of money you should just look into a Fender Frontman, a Vox, or a Marshall. They're all better bets.

Great amp for the price

By John

from Minneapolis, MN

See all my reviews

I bought this amp used and have used it as my main amp for about 5 years. I like the tone of clean tube amps but needed something that could take a beating and stand the cold (I live in Minnesota). This amp has a great tone on the clean channel and with the right amount of digital reverb you can make it sound a good bit like a Fender Twin Reverb. I only use clean channel as the distortion channel is too heavy. Overall, great sounding amp for the price.

Great For The Price Which Was Free

By JadeBoy90

from Tahlequah,OK

I got this amp free for an amp I had 'come' across. This has helped me out so much it's great for practice or shows just mic it up if you're playing an arena lol. It perfect for most music just a pedal is all you need, cause the distortion is okay, but after you use a pedal you realize it can be so much better. Warm cleans you can't beat that especially an a solid state amp. The reverb are great, but you have to be picky to not like them. The affects are good if your on a budget I would want more control n them though. I plug in a 71 Les Paul and a Les Paul Junior just perfect for Blues to Metal to Indie. JUST PERFECT!!!!!!!

Just Bought This Amp

By Fender244

from Massachusetts

See all my reviews

I got this amp a little while ago and from the 1st time I turned it on until now I have liked this amp. It's not the best amp in the world, but it has some good features on it. It is worth the money too. If you're looking for a bigger and louder amp than a tiny practice one, this is the amp you want.

uhh... WOW

By SG-Rocker

from centeral valley, CA

this amp is amazing.... has a crunch tone very true to an overdriven tube amp, despite the solid state heart. it has everything a giging guitarist could need. efects loop, footswitch, 2 line outs (one 1/4 inch jack,one mic jack) perfect for hooking up to a PA but who needs a PA this thing is LOUD. and the louder it gets the better the tone gets. the boost, and effects are footswitchable if you have the 3 button footswitch. which makes this thing a dream if you need a lead boost or some quickie effects. they arent awesome but do do a great job.i love this thing. you will too.

Amazing Amp

By Doug Lewis

from Ironton, MO

See all my reviews

Holy crap is this thing loud. I've owned it for about three years now. I got it towards the end of the career of the alternative band I was in through high school. It made a WORLD of difference from the (Peavey) amps I was used to dealing with. This is a REAL amp. The digital effects are all but useless, but lets face it, if you are an effects person, you're going to buy a good deal of outboard units anyway.Both the clean and dirty channels offer a full pallet of sounds to choose from, and the amp does not pain the sound. My Ibanez Iceman IC-300 and my Telecaster sound completely different - as they are SUPPOSED to (I never got that difference from my peavey amplifiers).Overall ... a total rocker at a price you cannot beat for the sound you are getting.Heavy son of a gun though.

Strength in numbers

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This amp isnt the best in the world but it works for what i use it for. It's a very midrange-esque amp. I use a digitech processor through an old vintage fender 100w 1x12 through to the kustom 100dfx, and I run highs through the fender and lows through the kustom. It's ok for what i use it for, but I would not recomment it for use just by itself.

I got this amp a little over a month ago and it's ok. The built in effects are a little corny. It's geared more towards metal style of music. It comes nothing close to a basic tube amp in it's price range. My advice is get a fender fm 112 or a peavey. Yeah the effects may seem nice but their cheesy, stick with pedals. The distortion has way to much bite, but the clean channel is ok.

It's an okay amp.

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I bought this amp a few years ago and really liked the clean channel. But the Rhythm channel is no good. you can play for about 45 minutes to an hour but eventually the thing goes crazy. like you flipped a switch and the whole thing goes fuzzy. like a really crappy fuzz distortion. I tried to return it and tell Kustom what was going on and got no help at all. But I still have to agree with a previous review that if you use external pedals the clean channel really sounds good. and you can do a lot with it. but I, and anyone else that owns this amp, should get 75% of their money back because it only works for 75% of the time.
