Such a simple and easy design. The front top panel has four control knobs that control the volume and the basic EQ of bass, middle, and treble. There isn't a whole lot the user can get confused with.
Just about any guitar you can throw at it you will get a solid classic Marshall tone. I particularly like the amp with a Gibson Les Paul. It seems that the two were made for each other.
With only handling five watts of power you can crank up the volume to get those tubes cooking and get a nice over driven sound.
This is a great sounding practice amp or light gigging amp. It does have a headphone out for silent practicing in your home or office. So that is a nice feature on a tube amp. It is pretty light for a combo amp weighing in at only 26 lbs. you can basically take it anywhere without much strain on your back.
At new these amps come in at around $400 and on the used market for around $250. I would recommend this amp to anyone who needs a great sounding tube amp in the Marshall/British tone vein.
