UTILIZATION

Pretty simple layout. The drive channel has a full 3 band EQ which is pretty useful.

Pretty easy to dial in a good sound, but you aren't going to get it sounding a whole lot better than that no matter how you try. The volume is alright, just enough to keep up with a loud drummer.

You can only really dial in one effect at a time which is a little annoying.

The manual is pretty clear and straightforward, no surprises.

SOUNDS

It is "ok." Nothing more, nothing less. The clean channel is alright, if a little dull and dry. But it is a decent platform, and takes pedals very well. It isn't going to produce bright and glassy fender cleans, and definitely doesn't have any kind of tube response, FDD or not. But for what it is supposed to be, a basic beginners amp, the cleans aren't bad.

The drive is a little more difficult to get an ok sound out of. It IS pretty versatile, you can dial it in for a a light bluesy OD, or heavier high gain settings. It isn't as thick or full of a distortion as some might like, but its not horrible.

The effects sound pretty decent and are a good starting point for someone looking to become familiar with their uses.

OVERALL OPINION

In short, this is a decent amplifier for a beginner who wants a basic two channel setup without the hassle of tubes. It is not the best sounding amplifier built, and a little overpriced in my opinion, but not the worst choice in the world. It was my first amp, and I was thrilled with it for about a year.

Overall, I would recommend spending the same amount of money, but buying something a little better at used prices. This one will probably not last more than a year or so.
