"I think its great"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I find this combo amp to be perfect. The built in effects are fine, have had zero issue with them, the octave effect is meh, but the chorus is decent, and the fuzz has some real growl to it, I got the control pedal for ease of use. Dominates the practice space if I turn up, I also use the powered 15" extension cab, which if you got the cash I recommend highly. good amp, worth the money
