Fender Bullet
This is a solid-state amp, a medium-sized combo. There is really only an option for practice, and it's a good buy for beginners. It's a 2-channel (clean and distorted), and it's alright, really. It's got 1 1/4" input, it's got 15 watts of power. The picture above may not be accurate, as mine never had a footswitch in.

UTILIZATION

Getting a good sound out of this might take a little time, but that's the same with any amplifier. I think that after an hour or so you'll know where to set it. The manual explains the thing pretty well.

SOUNDS

For a cheap practice amp, this sounds pretty awesome. The distortion is nothing that is going to impress anybody else, but when you're just practicing, this isn't necessary. It's reliable and versatile enough to enable you to practice a wide variety of styles. I'm sure that when it comes to practice, the cleans are satisfactory for most people, and the distortions even more so (if you're a fan of distortion). If you're not a fan of distortion, or you already have pedals, then this might not be for you. You'd be better off getting a better clean sound and using the pedal if you have one. The sound is a little flat so it can get old sometimes, but for a really small solid-state, it's a nice enough sound. The reverb is nice, feels like classic Fender spring reverb.

OVERALL OPINION

This is a solid-state amp, a medium-sized combo. There is really only an option for practice, and it's a good buy for beginners. I think most parents would find this to be a good buy for their kids who are starting to play, as it won't break the bank but it'll still sound respectable. If a kid starts out with really bad gear, he's gonna lose interest in playing really soon. I feel like this would be a great amp for a kid to keep for awhile without losing interest. Even beyond that, it's relatively small, fits in most bedrooms, so it might even be ideal for college kids who want to keep up.

Fender Bullet
See above
15 W transistors good better than the marshall of the same type.
<span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>Distortion channel super</strong></span> small volume. clear impeccable.
The 15 W really impressed if you put an HP supplmentaire! you can rpter with no pb!

UTILIZATION

See above.
Missing is a reverb.

SOUNDS

The bullet is strong and great for small volume work, or even the occasional beef or repeated if we add a baffle 112 and even 212! one gets the impression of a 50 W or 100 W transistor.
When connecting an ext HP, HP is cut from the amp.
AND! we recognize more than the amp. I did some test Listen to friends who saw not what I played: Full bluffs.
The fact that the fender prtend do not know distos??

OVERALL OPINION

I have since 1996: no pb! I do spares certainly not!
