SOUNDS

What is fascinating about this amp is the ability to change tones and edit via your computer. When you hook this thing up to your home computer the screen shows the exact same control knobs as you would see on your actual amp.

The tones on this amp are digitally based so you won't have that real tube feel or sound. You also won't have that air that gets thrown from a tube speaker cabinet.

There really isn't a guitar that doesn't sound good with this amp. There are enough sounds and genre specific amp models that accompany single coil guitars as well as humbucking style guitars. I prefer the sound of the humbuckers with this amp. The editing possibilities are really endless with this amp.

OVERALL OPINION

At new these amps come in at around $300, which isn't that bad for the computer based amp. The FUSE software is very cool and probably the best feature that comes with this amp. You can also login online and share presets and tone with other users of this amp. Playing with an iod or Mp3 player via the storage playback if very cool. So that helps you play along with out having a drummer and also learning or creating riff to your favorite songs.
