    Looks like a cheaply buil Epi Valve clone. If it sounds as bland as the Epi I would pass. Put your money towards a tweed Champ clone or one of those VHT Special 6 amps that are supposedly based off a Champ.

      i picked one up last month. class A tube amp for $100, hard to go wrong.  tubes take time to warm up, tone reminds me of Fender Champ (which usually can't be touched for under $400 these days).  surprisingly loud, incredibly basic.  good for garage rock, blues, dirty rock and roll.  takes an overdrive nicely, modulating effects seem to overpower the tone.  try before you buy.
