I have played many different styles of music over the years including rock, metal, country, and jazz. The Rebel K60AM is a classic vintage amp that can do them all! I also own a Fender Twin Reverb and several effects. My problem was trying to get good tones while recording without having to crank it up. When the neighbors in the next condo began beating on the wall, I knew it was time to get a better suited amp.
I spent several hours playing with all the different settings and tones, excited about all this little amp could do. While there is a learning curve, I would have to say that it was still far easier to find the tone I wanted on the Spider IV than with my other setup. Even after a few weeks, I still really haven't used all the features the amp has because there are so many to choose from it takes a while to get through them all.
Pros: huge variety of quality tones, loud for its size (the 75 can keep up with a drum kit), fun to experiment with, great home studio recording amp, controls are well configured, solid optional footswitch (I got the FBV Express), well priced for its capabilities
Cons: These are really very minor things. Changing the channels changes the volume. The lower end of the master knob is overly sensitive. The reverb on the amp is not as good as the other effects (keep in mind I have been playing on a Twin Reverb).
All in all, for the price, the Rebel K60AM is a terrific amp, and opens up all kinds of tones that I never would have been able to get before. With a ton of features and it being a vintage amp always is great, I love vintage gear and this exceeds my expectations. I recommend this to anyone on an electric guitar.

I feel like the only one on this earth to own this amp!
brief, yet ...
here was my first electric acoustic amp. It is a 60W transistor.
The beast weighs his weight, and that's saying something, but she has a good record. Everything is managed by an equalizer which performs its role. The effects section is accompanied by reverb and chorus. This is not the best in the land, but hey it's always made his little (and then especially with respect to the price ... must not be more royalist than the king).
Another good point you can plug in a mate because there are two entries!
bah this is an amp, and more transistors ... branch and we go ...
Few marked medium bass and treble (tweeter thank you the extra assistance crystalline appearance) are present. The sound that is unfortunately a bit cold, but for trips to Metalica, it's hell!
It has been almost ten years I have, and I rolled my hump dpuis.
I think it's a good amp, especially with respect to the quality / price ratio, which lacks just a little heat and medium, but is very well thought of for entry.
