I literally purchased this amp from an online ad while en route to a small bar gig where I would be performing with a celloist(!), bass and conga. My Showman tube amp decided to die on me an hour earlier and I was stuck. For what I paid for the thing I figured I could use it as an end table if it didn't work out. I walk in with this toaster oven-sized amp, power it up, plugged in the Yamaha and was amazed. It took a few minutes to figure it out (three volume controls) but with a little experimentation I found the sound. It was incredibly true. More than enough power and no hiss.

Although I didn't use it that night, the Bad Dog effects feature (through a Les Paul) leaves a lot to be desired. But the amp accomodates an external effects box. The little eight-inch speaker handles the low end remarkably well. The reverb is way too much if you go beyond 1. And you need to cut back on the treble and bring up the bass and mid-range to get the best acoustic sound. I later ran a keyboard through it later just for kicks and it didn't even whimper. Bad Dog even gave me a near-perfect Deep Purple "Monster" sound.

Not recommended for arenas, but for small venues this little amp is a winner. And it weighs a lot, lot less than a Showman. I also have a Fender Amp Can and the Wasburn beats it by a mile. I think the Washburn and I will be doing a lot of traveling together in the future.
Low, mid and upper range controls, two channels, reverb, Bad Dog.
Built like a tank, clear sound, near-perfect reproduction of acoustic tone. Suprising volume for such a small amp.
Great value for the money.

Well, since my amp didn't work, I had to borrow it from a friend. Although the amp is new, I was disappointed. I just can't believe it sounds so flat, boring and feedbacked. A 16 watter from either Marshall, Fender, Crate or Line 6 will sound much better without paying much difference.

pretty B.A.

By vipershred

from port jervis, ny

I've had this amp for about six months, and it is pretty good for a small amp. You can hear it rather well over a drum set and it blows my friend's 50 watt Ibanez away. Mine came with an 8" extention speaker but I don't use it because this little guy can drive a 4"x12". The reverb sounds great. The only problem I've had with it is that if I put my metal zone in the amp's effects loop and use the reverb the amp has way too much sustain. I know that sounds ludacris but take my word for it.

The Little Amp That Could

By Carnute

from Tullahoma, TN

I've had my Bad Dog for two years now and it has withstood my torture. Being that I play power metal, I would like it to be louder, but for later evenings at home it is great. I can plug in my headphones and wail and only I suffer the aural onslaught. The reverb is nice except that with even slight reverb at higher volumes there is a noticable and consistant "ping" in the speaker and when using a dsp floor pedal or playing with scooped mids the little 8" speaker has a lot of trouble staying rigid. but for low level attenuated recording through a modeled cab this little sucker rocks. It does look really cool with it's silver grill and black body. The clean channel, when using a hot humbucker in the bridge, will distort at high levels. But, you can either switch to the neck pick-up or turn the pick-up volume down. When using a standard single coil I experienced no distortion at any level. The solid state distortion channel is very nice for such a little devil, as I stated earlier, only whe the mids are scooped and the volume is high does the speaker have any trouble at all. Through head phones the amp sounds fantastic at any level.

Nice Amp

Sounds chimey and bell like, very quiet. Loud and full sounding for an 8" speaker. Great wet reverb. Much nicer than frontman 25r . nice build quality.Randall makes a twin.

Good everyday Amp

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This amp is light and easy to use. It is reliable to use everyday. A good amp for practice in your room. It hums sometimes but all amps hum so there isn't much you can do about that! Overall a good amp!!

I bought my amp one year ago.I have turned it all the way up hooked all my efects pedals to it. I even let my son try and kill it. But unlike my old crate wich has a 12 inch speaker. I can not blow it up. I think this is the best practice amp I have ever owned.

Great value in a practice amp

By TheBreeze

from Lawrenceville, GA

See all my reviews

Okay.....it doesn't sound like a Marshall or a THD, but for the price it sounds pretty darn good, has reverb and a headphone jack for practice and is loud enogh to keep up with acoustic drums and is extemely portable. If you are looking for a practice amp, this one will do just fine.
