Sound: Great versatile amp. i play with a rock/blues/classic rock band and it can get any tone i need. from a hendrix sound to a country sound, to a heavy sound. the distortion is great the only complaint i have is that the boost on the pedal it comes with doesn't really boost the gain or the volume... i play with a guy that has a 3000 dollar mesa rig, and he was blown away by how much better this bogner sounds.... its the real deal for the money, you can't go wrong. And for you haters that say its made by line 6, guess again, the only thing that isn't bogner on it is the reverb, that is line 6, but everything else is pure bogner... don't have to do much tweaking to make it sound good... plug in and play. oh and this thing is LOUD! i practice with the whole band with the volume set on about 3..... Feature: only complaint was that the boost on the pedal doesn't really do anything. Ease of Use: plug in and play.... that easy.. Quality: SOLID! its heavy and its tough. Value: totally worth it. Great quality without having to go too hungry for a month or two in order to pay for it. Manufacturer Support: haven't needed to. The Wow Factor: its got a simple look, combining old school styles with new school materials... its not sexy but its not an eyesore either. but who cares the tone is kick ass. Overall: most like the tone. its great. least like that the boost doesn't actually boost anything. will combine with a fulltone ocd overdrive pedal in order to get the boost i need for those screaming leads...

Sound: very cool range of tones. bogner is the man and this is an incredible (and affordable -- his other amps go for thousands!) introduction to his sound. probably the loudest 40-watt amp i've ever heard. no problem keeping up with a crashy rock band. Feature: awesome sounding effects. tap tempo on the pedal would be cool but in no way a deal breaker. great components -- bogner doesn't cut corners. Ease of Use: honestly, i just plugged in and it sounded great. and that's how i like to do it -- my main rig is a classic fender bassman silverface 410. Quality: seems to me like it's made well. and it looks cool. i'd feel confident tossing it into the van every night. Value: value

Overall: Picked one up for about 350.00 clean is pristine , eq very responsive.Can get dark or fender like glassy but very rich. Overdrive rocks.Again, e.gq is sensitive ,but when you find the sweet spot pedals will be a thing of the past. A outstanding amp..It is heavy but casters were included with mine so all good. Also line 6 effects sound very nice good verb and delay..which can be accessed from footswitch Also can be a very loud 4o watts or switch to 20 ..which is how I use it , plenty loud enough for most gigs ..2 12 c speakers sound warm and punchy
