SOUNDS

Try this guitar with an acoustic and sing through the other channel and you'll be ready for a light gig or coffee shop. It takes batteries so before going out to the bar make sure you are prepared with full batteries.

It really doesn't matter which guitar you use with it because this little unit sounds pretty good in any guitar application. For nice clean then use a single coil guitar like a Fender Strat or a Tele. For the rock tones try a Les Paul or other humbucking style guitar.

OVERALL OPINION

At new these unit come in at around $270 which is a little on the high side for what it does. It is an amp and has 8 different amp models with 6 effects, but the price tag is a bit high for me with this amp.

I am a fan of the tone that you get out of it but to me the price it too high. The coolest feature which I'm guessing constitutes the expense is the two independent channels that can have two separate inputs for instrument and vocal mic. For PA purposes it is reasonable but if you just need a practice amp with all the effects then there are much better ones out there.
