Sound: I use this for harmonica, and keeping in mind it is only a 6 1/2 inch speaker - 20 watts - this thing is awesome. I have been playing thru an 80 watt 12 inch speaker Peavey - but not anymore. I have tried many other amps 3 times the price and could not get the bluesy harp sound I wanted. This amp does it. If you want a very convienent (this thing runs on batteries) but great sounding harp amp for about $100.00. This is the only choice in my opinion. It is loud enough for small gigs believe it or not. As far as using this amp for guitar, well I plugged my bass into it and it sounded like what I expect a 6 1/2" speaker on a 20 watt amp to sound like with a bass - uuuggghhh forget it. But for harmonica - BUY IT ! Feature: Not much on features - but one thing - when you change the Squeal or Tone control - it really does make a difference - at least with the harmonica. I found just the right setting for that crunchy nasty bluesy sound and I leave the knobs there. Quality: Mine arrived in perfect condition and it really is a nice looking little thing. Definately appears to be a solidly built amp Value: If I had to I would easily have paid twice what I did for this thing. (If I had to, but since I bought it here- I didn't have to) Manufacturer Support: Not had to deal with them, I did visit their web site before purchasing and they had a very helpfull discussion forum that seemed to address a lot of potential issues. (like recharging time/frequency - so on) The Wow Factor: I like the looks of it. Even tho it is very small it does not have the appearance of a cheap amp. Overall: I will NEVER replace it with anything else - if anything ever happened to it I would buy another in a second. If ever I got to playing harp to the point where I really needed something bigger I would surely keep this one as my main practice amp. If you play harp you should have one of these.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
