I have several friends who aren't really guitar players who own this amp. This is a introduction to electric guitar amplifying. This is not the type of amp someone who has been playing for 12 years is going to buy. If you are learning and walking into a Guitar Center or Sam Ash you will see these amps sitting there. They are pretty much junk. There isn't too much of value on them but they aren't really aimed at the high end gigging musician either.

They have a few different distortion setting and effects that give you somewhat of an opportunity to have different modeling sounds. Nothing to which sound natural or real in any way. You aren't going to take this amp and gig with it or even show your friends. You are going to tuck it away and practice with it until you can afford a real tube amp.

This thing is going to sound like a digital amp and there is no way around it. You can have all the artists you want help give way to a sound that sounds artificial. I really dislike these type of amps and modeler combos. They really sound like trash cans hitting a barn wall.

It really doesn't matter what you use as far as guitars go because it all sounds the same through this amp....blah. Try it with a Les Paul or something with a humbucker in it since a lot of the preset are geared towards that with the artist offerings.


This thing is bad. It is loud and terrible. It sounds horrible and you will spend more time dinking around with sounds and effects rather than actually playing the guitar. I wouldn't recommending this amp to anyone. Keep it simple and easy with a guitar cable and a tube amp. That is simple and the honest way to get started playing the electric guitar. Pass on this with flying colors.
