    A portable practice amp that successfully emulates tube sounds.

    10W practice amp with a 6-1/2" custom-designed speaker, high and low EQ, switchable TransTube overdrive, and tape/CD and headphone inputs. This updated version of the renowned road-rugged Backstage practice amps of the '70s has a patented TransTube preamp that emulates the even, harmonic distortion of 12AX7s without the hassle or cost of tubes. The gain level is tailored for any amount of drive--clean, crunch, or scream. The TransTube also mimics the "push back" response of real tube circuitry, essential to emulating tube dynamics, distortion, and chime.

    Features

    • 10W RMS
    • 6-1/2" custom Peavey speaker
    • TransTube preamp with 2 switchable channels
    • Volume and Overdrive controls
    • 2-band EQ
    • Tape/CD input for practice
    • Headphone jack

    Wow! I ws surprised when I scrolled across this amp on this website. This was my very first amp from when I first started playing. It's a pretty good starter amp. The distortion is alright, it's not very good, but it'll get the job done for the, what, $60 you're paying for the amp.The clean sound is pretty good. It gets plenty loud for the size of the amp. I definitely would buy this amp if you're just starting out.

    Ok, so I was getting my first guitar and decided I'd get a cheap amp to start. Instead of saving money by settling for less, I might as well just burn my money. This amp sounds horrible! You don't have a middle EQ, you get tons of feedback when the volume goes above 3 on the overdrive channel, and it has a dull sound to it. The distortion is ok...for about 5 minutes, then you get bored. It sounds "muted" on low settings and doesn't sound distorted enough when high. On clean the tone always sounds very sour, and with no middle EQ it's hard to control the sound. Overall I would not recommend this amp to anyone, it will bore even beginners.

    Good enough

    By shred[k]ing

    from CANADA!!!

    This was the first amp I had as a beginner, the tonal range is not great, and the amp still serves me well for practicing, if you want to use this amp to its full potential I suggest running it through basic computer speakers, it can crank louder and give it the bite its measly 10" speaker doesn't provide.

    Giving Out

    By reggie432

    from Undisclosed

    I bought this amp to go along with my first guitar about four years ago. It worked pretty well for a while, then the feedback on it got worse. A couple days ago I tried to turn it on, and it won't. I guess all amps burn out after a certain time.. Overall it's pretty good if you're first starting out, but it's not that dependable.

    Good bang for the buck

    By Nitetrain

    This is perfect for home practice. Plug in a CD and your guitar and get out the headphones and you have a way of learning or fine tuning without bothering anybody else. Perfect for practice only.

    Good for practice.

    I have this amp in my room as a little amp to play quietly while other ppl are in the house and I also have a blown 600 watt peavey I use sometimes just to get a good fuzz tone but I keep the volume low. Overall, get it because its cheap and its a good amp just to pracrice on in your free time but the overdrive channel sucks so get some pedals and you'll be made in the shade.

    RAW AND GOOD

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    I use a pedal for distortion and really like the sound of from this amp. It's loud enough for me to practice with a drummer with the volume only at 3 and records well too. The features are more than I need, price is good and the construction quality is solid.

    Pocket Hercules that does its job

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    This amp is a 10-watt one, so its sound cannot be compared to a 100-watt one. However, it is still pretty strong for a tiny amp, and 10 watts. This amp is not for performance, so it should steer clear of the stage. But for home rehearsal, practice and jam sessions, this amp fits nicely!
