"This little beast is one hot and awesome amp that I`m tickled pink to own."
I expect I`ll be satisfied with it for a long time.If it does break down soon,then I`ll fix it myself,or get it fixed else where,and if it goes completely down,then I1ll look for another amp like this one,except maybe a little more power.Maybe!

Sound
I bought this neat little amp the other day and I`m really impressed on how it sounds.WOW,it blew me away.I use all of the sound effects on it,also the drom beats,and the tuner.What a cool setup on this cool amp.It`s got lots of rockin` power.I really enjoy it everyday.

Features
No,there were no accessories with it except the carrying strap and the power adaptor,but thats because it`s used.All in all,it`s one awesome little amp. I get a charge out of it.I`ve never seen an amp like it before. It`s cute and rugged.

Ease of Use
It didn`t have a manual when I got it,but that`s ok,brcause it`s easy to use and modify the sounds I need.I use it with my lead guitar and my bass guitar,and I also plug my microphone in to for some more wonderful fun.

Quality
It seems to be built good and durable.I think it`s reliable and will last a long time.

Value
Since it`s built well, I think it`s worth it`s price.

Manufacturer Support
No, I have not dealt with the company yet.I haven`t needed any service yet.

The Wow Factor
It`s a practical addition to my set-up.I use it a lot more than I do my other amps,brcause it`s so fun to use,and it sounds great,plus, I can take it outside and play it if I want to with out plugging it in.The battery setup is really read more cool.
