"Perfection in a box~"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I always had a comfort level with Roland's reputation and believe them to build a solid, quality product. As I don't have a music store locally to try out amps, I did some research and ordered this from Zzounds. I was not disappointed. One of my main considerations was weight. As a woman moving around equipment, portability is key. Getting this quality in this size of an amp surprised me. I'm able to use it for most of my solo gigs, and when I'm playing with my group, it functions well as a monitor.
The clarity and amplification is excellent. I've used this as a PA for both guitar and vocals in small to small/medium venues and it performed well.
Roland's reputation for chorus' precedes them. Having an onboard chorus, delay and reverb simplifies my life. My wish list though, would include being able to separate out the reverb and delay functions per channel, as can be done with the chorus.
Ease of Use
Pretty straight forward.
The amp is well made, with the exception (as has been noted numerous times) of the lack of speaker protection. Grill, please.
Have we not all learned by now that when it comes to gear, we get what we pay for? Yes, it is pricey and yes it is worth it.
None needed to date.
The Wow Factor
From a design standpoint, it doesn't float my boat. This is neither retro nor bleeding edge.
