Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (26 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "The perfect amp for beginner rockstars!"
Sound: The immense variety of sounds this box makes is more than $100 could ever ask for. Its distorted settings are nothing short of glorious and the clean and fuzzy settings are also sweet. I have had trouble with the octaver effect on both the one I first sent back and the one I replaced it with, but I can't honestly say I really need it anyway. Also, I wonder if it's supposed to sort of pulse when I let it ring? Personally I prefer a straight ring with my fadeouts, but it's not a priority when there are so many pros to consider and I suppose it gives my playing some character. My only real complaint in this respect is that there is a faint echo of whatever note/noise I last played whenever I silence the strings, which isn't very useful whenever I want a cut-off. Before I bought my own, my cousin introduced me to his and then we went to the music store in town and compared its sound with all the pricey amps there. It beat them all hands-down. It was actually kinda sad how pathetic they all sounded next to the little 15-watt Peavey. Feature: I'm not much more than a beginner playing a Squier Jagmaster but I find every single amp model, clean and distorted, to give the right feeling in some context or another. They are all well-replicated from the original amps they were modeled off of and all yield to tremendous and useful variation from the equalizer and gain knobs. The effects are a bit overextensive and I can't honestly say that I would ever really use, for instance, the Reverse or Tube Scrm functions for anything other than messing around, but I don't complain at the chance to experiment with so many sounds like the Phaser and Tremolo without having to buy expensive pedals. The presets are very useful and although one will frequently erase itself at random (which may just be a particular problem with the amp I bought), it is easy to recover them quickly. I can't, however, say what it would be like to play with not-entirely-reliable presets live onstage. . . probably not too good. Ease of Use: Everything is quite straightforward except for the "Edit Mode" This mode was barely explained in the manual but I have not found any need for it yet. Pretty much plug-in-and-play. Quality: I have bumped it around a bit and cranked the volume till my ears bled, but I can't detect any loss in awesome. Having such a variety of sounds to cover, I won't expect it to last five years, but by then I will have gotten all I needed and more from it. Value: My $100 couldn't have been spent better. My classmate has a generic Fender amp that he bought for more than $100 and it can't do 1/500th of the things this baby can. Manufacturer Support: I haven't had need for contact yet. The Wow Factor: Other than the rather ridiculous plastic "fangs," I couldn't imagine my dream amp looking any better. The metallic knobs and fancy lights pretty much steal the show from the conventional amp appearance, and the black leather look is NICE. Overall: I would recommend this amp to absolutely anybody with multi-genre interests. It simply has it all. Buy it if you want to be impressed!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "loud obnoxious midget that sounds great but a bit difficult to reason with"
Sound: I don't know what amp models to compare to the 'real thing' I just know it sounds good. You can coax feedback out of it, you can dabble around with effects if that's your thing, you can just set up a good crunch and blast away with it and it doesn't sound tinny and thin it sounds like a beast. I can compete with a drum set volume wise for practice. Certain amp models are EXTREMELY sensitive to your playing style, giving the impression that you are rocking a tube. I live in the blissful ignorance of just knowing what sounds good without having to know why. Feature: it has a power cord and a CD rom with the instructions, which is kind of a pain in the butt. What happened to a damn pamphlet with the instructions like all other amps? Not all guitardians are computer inclined. I don't care about the built in effects once I learned how to turn them off (which took a while with the stupid CD rom manual). I guess its nice that they are there, I just wanted it for its tone though, which is JUST TOO GOOD TO DESCRIBE IN A LITTLE TEXT REVIEW. Ease of Use: If you just want presets fine and dandy, but actually reprogramming the presets requires digging around on a computer for instructions. Not very intuitive at first glance. I spent an afternoon finding 4 sounds I liked and punching them into the memory and haven't looked back Quality: It's just fine. Solid, loud, can be turned up all the way without crusting out. Mine tends to move around the linoleum floor a bit when certain low frequencies go through the speaker. Yeah, like it's dancing or something. But it won't rattle itself apart I turned it all the way up and the speaker didn't complain, it just moved the cab around a bit. Value: as far as practice amps or home studio recording amps go this thing is very nice. Tone is the strongpoint here. For the price you can get some other transistory sounding mini amp, but this guy actually sounds good. Manufacturer Support: Gets a 5 because I have no idea. The Wow Factor: Its solid for home recording, and loud enough for band practice. It's not like its a wall of Marshalls or anything, so I give it a good to middle rating here... like it really matters? maybe if it was covered in sparkles or something? (truth is that rocking gets the ladies, not what gear you rock with)... But yeah I want it, I bought it. Overall: I like it. So many tones... each time I randomly screw around with an amp model I end up with some tone that almost writes a riff by itself. Very cool tool for creativity. I just wish I had an actual instruction manual for the effects so I woudn't have to get on a computer to figure out something as basic as turning off the built in delay or whatever.
