I bought this amp through Musicians Friend and paid about $280. I bought this amp because i need something portable with some punch that could be used at smaller gigs.

It is very easy to move around, and is a perfect practice amp. It has two selectable channels, one which has a gain gontrol for distortion and one for clean. Also I like the rock back feature, which makes the amp handy for stage use. The carpet on the amp is very durable, and it has a nice handel.

This amp is a great practice amp like I said before, but at the gig when you ahve to turn it up past helf volume, even on the clean channel there is awful distortion. I would not recomend this amp to anyone with a Musicman like mine with active pickups. The amp cannot seem to handel it and thus sounds like a blown out speaker. Also a 3 band EQ is barley enough with no other tone selections. And why is the power switch on the back???

The amp is well constructed, and covered with carpet so you dont have to worry about scratches. You do have to worry about dog hair though. The amp has a nice handel which make it comfortable to carry around.

This amp is not one I would buy again, at least for anything but playing by yourself. I ended up trading mine in for a Ampeg 115. Good for practice, not so good at the gigs. But hey, what can you expect for a little under $300?
