Good amp, durable, open back, crappy speaker, but well worth the time and money. Good choice, but if you have money, buy a Marshall, Mesa, or Peavey halfstack (XXX or Satriani)
This is amp is a pretty good amp for a beginner to intermediate. It is loud, but not loud enough for a band or gig. But if you connect it to a Cabinet through the external speaker jack, it will be a ton louder. The cab could be either 8ohm or 16ohm. I have a Peavey XXL 4x12. The clean is very clean and crisp, not very warm but it will do, and the distortion is a little to thick not enought highs and mids. I use a Boss Metal Zone 2 instead of the amp distortion,(which I recommend).
It has two channels, clean and distortion. A great feature is the reverb, but what sucks is that it is not footswitchable, so either you playing with it or your not, theres no going back.
For the price it is very good. I like it with my Peavey XXL 4x12 cab. It sounds like a beast.
It could be a little cheaper because the Sheffield speaker isnt that great but the amp head itself is pretty worthy.
Peavey is a good brand, though I have never used the support line.

Rather have a Mesa or Marshall but can't afford it.
