I'm a reverb fan, so was not satisfied at all with the delay feature. I'll leave it on chorus setting permanently. I plugged it stereo through a Mackie mixer to some Sony MDR-V6 headphones, then cranked up the Mackie spring reverb setting. When using the overdrive or metal mode, the result is quite satisfying as far as a loud guitar practice session in the privacy of one's own skull. Plenty of good harmonics there. Since this is a $25 unit, I'll see about hacking the circuit board into a planned franken-amp project, involving a Fender Champ amplifier, a 12" Celestion Vintage 30 speaker and the guts of a Digitech Digiverb, all in a custom floor monitor slant style cabinet.

GEEZ!!!! What do you guys expect for 25 bucks?! No, it's not a Marshall half-stack with Fuzzbox and a CryBaby. But it is TWENTY FIVE DOLLARS !!!!I've had one for years now (bought it from MF)and it is a very servicable amp to use for "quiet" practice. I connect my TEX-MEX STRAT and it works fine. No, don't even bother to connect it to your big amp & use it like a pedal. It sucks for that. There is a reason that some single function pedals cost $100 PLUS!!!Use it as a practice amp or travel amp and recognize it for what it is and you won't be disappointed.And yes, throw away the the crappy, cheap headphones that come with it and use the ones that you use with your MP3 player ( I use SONY) and it will sound fine.

Little box / little benefit

By God's Flying V-man

from Rockingham, NC

I want to be fair the headphones were broken out of the box (in} actually but I found some with compatible freq response and worked ok with them I like most of the sounds too but the controls and plug-ins should be re-arranged to a more funtional set of positions. I used this as a head-phone amp and also through my guitar amp for live sound for the price I was very satisfied It is bulky and not weight balanced and the speaker-phones were sorry & un-useable my main complaint is with the plug-ins and controls positions I actually was fond of the sounds produced maybe I'll buy another one since this one was trashed buy someone I lent it to who had no concept of how to use it properly.

Sounds great. My only criticism is the cheap headphones but you can't expect quality phones at this price. I use JCV phones which lets me turn the volume way down and conserve batteries. This unit even sounds good when connected to my big amplifier. Can't go wrong with the price.

Do not atempt buy this please, the distorcion is poor, you need to use a low volume of your instrument to have a regular sound.

not bad not good

By Rob-6c...

from CT

Echo is lifeless, Chorus is okay, Overdrive decent, metal master decent, the problem lies in the incredible highs generated by chorus or echo, also volume does not necessarily increase volume of tone or effect, rather loudness of guitar, you can hear the guitars natural sound above the effect, if the volume increased the volume of the effect it would be pretty nice

save up for something better

By Incredibly nice fellow

from Montana

See all my reviews

I wanted a headphone amp for years ever since I played through a friends Rockman. The Rockman had this cool huge auditorium sound. I bought a Pocket Rocket amp several years ago and it started making weird siren-type sounds after a few weeks. I bought this Hot Watt 2 a year ago. Tried it out for awhile the day I got it and haven't touched it since. I was pretty disappointed. If all you want is a way to hear your electric without bugging everyone else in the house, this will work. But if you care at all about sound quality, get something else.

Worth the sale price..

By Papaya5402

from New York

See all my reviews

Has alot features, the echo feature was A disapointment. It didn't seem to have much effect. You can't use the echo and chorus together. It's a great deal at the sale price of $29.95. Be warned though. The one I have requires 6 AA batteries. Depending on your amount of use, you might want to consider the 9 volt adapter.

Nice Practice Amp (Doesn't Bother Neighbors)

By Where_Do_I_Find_A_Good_Bow?

from Duluth, MN

See all my reviews

I bought this package for a small portable practice amp and I am very pleased with the amp.I use this little amp in the evening so I don't wake my family members up. It is also great for practicing when I am travelling as it is really small and portable and the hotel guests next to me can't hear me.It came with more features than I expected,Echo, chorus, metal mode, over drive, 2x tones Inputs: 1x "guitar(.25inch) in" 1x "walkman in" 1x "9vDC in"Outputs: 2x "headphone out" 1x "AMP(.25inch) out"The only problem with this package is the headphones are really cheap. I bought a nice set of headphones and now I am very pleased with the setup.

Arion Hot Watt II

By TdTdCs

from Germany

See all my reviews

OK so I bought this just so I could jam along with my MP3 player in private. The features are so-so for guitar but works great with my bass. The headphones that it came with works just fine when I play my guitar but with my bass I use my other set. The supplied headphones are too short but I bought an extension that solved that problem. Now if they could only find a way to combine this with say a Digitech RP50 in one product.......

Its an okay product.

By Guitar

from fresno, ca

The distortion on this thing is okay. The echo really doesn't do anything. The chorus is good and the overdrive is okay as well. I guess you can't expect too much from this thing.

Overpriced Toy

By Sunbum

from Newport RI

See all my reviews

Nothing exceptional here; everything about it is marginal. It's not even all that small for a mini headphone amp. The headphones that come with it are absolute junk, worse than the stuff you find in the local 99-cent store. Batteries don't last too long. Had mine a while, and every time I touch it I find myself wishing I'd returned it.

a low cost

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Turn the tone down on your guitar, switch to the neck-middle position on your strat copy and the "hot watt 2" will take your 5th fret harmonics into the knopfler zone, or erics "bad love"...it can be a bit noisy but for searing lead solos it really cuts through and makes it presence heard,a good (very low cost) effect unit, 10 years and it still works fine. not too bad for a thing made of plastic.

Good tones, all settings. 60 cycle humfeedback.

By LawlerL

from San Diego

Although it doesn't like my single coils (loud 60 cycle hum) it still sounds great. More features and better built than its closest competitor, the Rockman, and it's cheaper to boot. Could use additional features (compression, clipper, etc.) but has the basics covered nicely. Highly recommended!

Better than a Rockman!

By steverinostickerpicker

from Ohio

See all my reviews

I've played through ALL kinds of pedals and for them money you can't beat the HotWatt! It's far more verstatile than the Rockman, you can dial in the amount of distortion you want. It is a little noisy, but no worse than the majority of pedals and effects boxes out there. As I said, it's a steal at this price!

Hot Not

By Dave-cHiPu

from Midland, MI

This product came out of the box looking good, but it sounds terrible! I even hooked some high end headphones to it and it still sounded bad! The headphones it came with were not usable. Missing a part or broken! The whole thing is very poor! I had to return it! I would suggest Musicians friend does not stock this item in the future.

I you can stand or use the hiss it's fine.

By Music Mouse

from New York, NY

If you can work the hiss into your music and/or it doesn't bother you, it's a great little belt-pack preamp. Well designed for quick control access. But very hissy.

Don't waste your money.

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I bought one of these as a way to play without waking up the neighborhood. I had pretty low expectations going into it, but they were not low enough. The sound is absolutely terrible. And by terrible, I mean aweful. Don't waste your money on this. I never use mine because it sounds better just to strum my electric not plugged in. Yeah, it's that bad
