Sized and priced right, it's a great little rehearsal amp.
A surprisingly robust 16W RMS amp section drives an 8" Celestion through dual selectable lead and rhythm channels. 3-band EQ dials in your tone while CD/tape input and headphone jacks let you practice along with recorded music without bugging neighbors and housemates. A speaker out lets you drive an external speaker for bigger sound.

This is my first, and so far primary amp because of lack of funds. But anyway, it gets the job done when i'm just practicing or what not. It's not too big, and can put out a pretty large sound. Its own clean tone is pretty good. I can't seem to match it with my GNX3. The lead channel's gain is alright if you're desperate, but you're going to want a distortion or overdrive pedal in the end. If you want a decent small amp to practice, or whatever, and you're on a budget, this one is good.
Well, I bought this amp as my first, for really cheap, and it has served me well for a year now. While not an extremely high-quality amp, it is good for a beginning guitarist. You won't get something better, and new, for less.(Note: I use a Cort X series guitar, just so you can put these comments in perspective)Pros - It comes with the bare minimums, clean and distorted channels, Bass, Mid, and Treble EQs, and CD in, Headphone out, and Speaker out. This amp focuses on the guitarist's skill alone, since there are no onboard effects. A great practice amp, solidly built. I've carted it back and forth to gigs, home, and friends' houses. Plus, the price is great.Cons - The amp seems to overemphasize the bass notes, even when the EQ is turned down. This makes it excellent if you play mainly power chords with distortion. I've adapted my playing style to hit mostly strings 1-4, dropping out my bottom. The channels are also a bit scratchy, and this, combined with the bass emphasis, means you CANNOT use this amp to get a Strat sound. You won't lead with this amp, I'm sorry.
This was my first amp i ever owned. I got it in a package with a guitar for a good price. I have had this amp for about 5 years and i haven't had any major problems. The sound is very good a great sound. it's a 16 watt but sounds like a 30. I have only had it overheat a few times when that happens the guitar input doesn't work but the cd/tape input still works. That is the only probelm that i have had with it. So if you're looking for a first amp or something for the road i suggest this amp.
It has a very bad sound and it's not clear at all. It is also very, very staticy around electronic appliances.
The overdrive isn't perfect, but it's not bad. However, if you've got a few more bucks, you might want to look at the Marshall 15CD with digital effects.
I must say at the outset, this little amp is well worth its very modest price. That said, I should also mention that it isn't without faults. Although it has surprising volume for a 16-watt, it doesn't seem to handle low notes as well as it should. I plugged my Epiphone Chet Atkins CE into it and ran through several tunes, and noticed the bass strings sounded a little "muddy" on it. Just to make sure it wasn't the guitar, I plugged a Johnson Strat copy into it and, well, no difference. If you play mostly high-end riffs and runs, this amp will take you to Nirvana, but I prefer a little more balance. The EQ on it didn't help much. If you're just gonna use it for practice or informal jamming, it's just fine, and as I said earlier, you can rattle the windows with this little fella, it's louder than most 30-watt models I've played. For the bucks, it's hard to beat.
Well, I got this amp with my Fernandez guitar when I started playing and I have been very happy with it. I have to admit it is not great but it is the absolute best for the money. The sound is clear (with and without distortion) and the thing can get pretty loud. The amp is a pretty tough too, I've dragged it back and forth several places and it holds up well. The only criticism I have for it is that the features aren't too great. You cannot do too much other than switch between regular and distortion (although you can mess with the tones). So if you're looking for a grunge or death metal kind of sound, you will have to get a pedal. Other than that though, everything's great! I highly recommend for a beginner or as use as a practice amp.
