The tone of this amp is amazing. With this being said, don't think that you will get a sparkly Fender clean sound. This is not the amp for clean headroom! This amp is a bout crunch and gain. The first channel which is called crunch provides a thick and crisp overdrive when gain is past 3. Clean tones are attainable with gain below 5 and adequate control with guitar volume and delicate picking. The overdrive does rool off nocely with guitar volume and with the gain at 3/4 can put many amplifier lead channels to shame. The second channel is labeled "overdrive" and kicks like a 3-legged nija. The gain has gain on top of gain and can achieve heavy tones with a nice tight edgy sound. Anything from old to modern is attainable.

Footswitch is include and is built like a tank. It has a nice visible blue LED.

Ease of Use
The controls on this head are made simple enough for the slowest learners. Each channel has a gain and volume which is nice to achieve desired sound levels, but lacks a master volume which is no big deal. The effects loops is good, but will wash out reverb if gain is set to a high level. I have tried with many different pick-up combinations, but this amp accells with humbuckers, especially if they are active.

Not built like a tank!!The amp is made for players on a budget and looks good. It could be built tougher, but for the read more money it is definately worth it.

This amp is priced for players on a budget and .......just buy it, you won't be disappointed.
