Nothing special control "ISF" (wealth tax?), No EQ control.
1 auxiliary input (important), an interesting headphone output.

UTILIZATION

No need for manual is a simple amp, one branch, we play (trying) ...

SOUNDS

The clean sound is zero. In blandness that disgusted me to play on (play at all). It is steep and there nothing to do.
I had to add a zoom to get the equalizer and modeling complicated and yet it was not a success.
The crunch is in the same vein as clean sounds.
Saturated sound very fat and tear is available with a high gain and a very low volume so as not to become deaf.
Against by the headphone jack, this is nirvana.

OVERALL OPINION

I have 2 years. As soon as I played it at home, I realized that unfortunately would not do my bonheur.J 've also tried the 5W is ditto. the clean sound is rotten. It is far from an amp study. I replaced it with a Vox VT20 + and it is far better (and cheaper).
With experience, you do again this choice? ...:
I will not sell it.
This is an amp that does not suit me, and I do not think it comes from the guitar (Fender big APPLE and JTV89).
