This is a 100watt black combo amp

I bought it used off a friend along with a cable and a zoom effects pedal for a combine $300 in around 2003 or so.

It's a good lightweight starter amp for very small venues and for practices. If you are just playing around in your garage with a drummer and guitarists this will do just fine to be heard in the mix. Tone is satisfactory, clear and somewhat customizable, but personal tone is a preference. This amp is probably best for a practice studio.

If you need to be heard on stage, this is not the amp for you, only 100 watts means not to much power, however if you are mic-ed or DI-ed you should be fine, I used this one time at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ, for any of you who know famed place, and my bass ran through a DI box so it did just fine, however I used it on a small community center stage by itself and it DID not cut it volume wise with 2 other loud metal guitars.

Okay construction, internally it seemed fine, but I had some knobs and EQ levers fall off over the years, still worked and sounded fine but was a bit annoying. I never had the speaker on the inside blow out or anything.

If your starting out and don't have a lot of money, and need to upgrade from a small 15watt practice amp, this is great, if you need to medium to large venues, get a head and cabinet separate, this does not have a lot of power!
