SOUNDS

Will it fit your style of music?
Yes and no, for all Clean tones and with a slight overdrive of the amp, it suffit.Pour other styles such as Rock and Metal HardRock, a distortion pedal (or a multi-effects, when eh ... you're a beginner) is to be expected because of its lead channel is too rough beyond the stroke of half the volume pot (and again).
However, given the small size of HP (8 "), you will not get a distortion in her famous.

"Everything is a matter of settings and how you jouez.J 've been able to obtain satisfactory sound (considering the price of the amp.)
