These little pocket amps are being more and more popular by the minute. The basically fit on the side of your belt or sitting on your counter top space and being able to play and electric guitar. They are a cool idea but don't for one minute think you are going to get a decent tone from these things. They sound like utter garbage. not just this one but all of them. Any manufacturer which basically all the major ones are doing these pocket amps. The are for one reason only and that is to play electric guitar at reasonable volumes, silent playing if they have headphones, and just practicing.

SOUNDS

The sound of this thing won't sound like your custom shop tone master by Fender or anything like it. This thing is nasally and scratchy and sounds better if run over by a car. However, I look at this amp and others like it as just merely practicing tools.

If you have some time in your office or somewhere quite that you want to jam by yourself then this is a great little item to have. It has a headphone output for silent playing when you need and would probably do this thing some justice as well. The thin sounds better the less gain you have on it so dial it in to your preference but too much nasally gain will cause your hairs to stand up on your neck.

OVERALL OPINION

At new these amps come in at around $40 which is a great deal for something this small and workable. Again the sound is nothing that will blow you away but just look at it from a mere practicing point.

I would recommend this to anyone who needs a quite practicing pocket amp and doesn't want to splurge too much money trying to do. Most people can afford the $40 so it is a good deal.
