60 watts solid-state amp (although I'd say it delivers more), one 1/4" jack input.
4 other connections: 1 for a footswitch, 1 preamp out, 1 power amp in and headphones.
Two channels: clean and overdrive, each with treble/bass and volume controls, plus contour and gain for the second channel. A reverb button that works for both channels. It's a pity that it doesn't have a control for the mids, but we'll forgive it for that.
Knobs a bit cheap...

UTILIZATION

Very easy to understand, no need for a manual, I really like the contour control that provides us with a good palette of different sounds!


SOUNDS

I recognize the clean Fender sound...Just for that I love it. And besides, you shouldn't use this amp for what it isn't meant to be used for: this distortion was not made for metal, but it really knows its trade when it comes to blues/rock/grunge! I use it with both single-coils and humbuckers and it responds fine, no problems in that sense.

OVERALL OPINION

I spotted it at a secondhand shop some time ago and I just bought if for $260. I've seen it on mail-order shops for $350, so it was a good deal!
Its main advantage is the Fender clean sound. I think I can recommend this product without hesitation.
