Sound Quality
With my Squire HSS Strat this amp sounds quite good with tweaking, however it goes very high on the treble, especially with the humbucker. I found that you can counteract this by getting a sound to replicate a bassman amp (roughly 3 treble, 4 mid, and 10 bass), however the amp was rattling either itself or things around it with this setup so I'm not sure if it was a significant advantage. On the bass pickup the treble still can be annoying, but not near as severe. I use this pickup the most, as it sounds best for blues and classic rock, and with tweaking this setup will sound great. The amp has no visible flaws playing on a middle pickup, or any mid tone single coil for that matter. Sorry for rambling on a bit there, lets just end this with a simple rating, 6.
Reliability/Durability
This I an automatic 10 for me. The amp has survived 4 foot falls onto concrete, cords yanking it down face first, anything and everything. How's it doing? Good as new. I would use it in any gig, well and small one... don't know how much 15 watts would cut it...
Price/Value
General Comments
I've been playing for about 10 months and this guitar has carried me through that time. I own a vintage 60's/70's Orpheum student model guitar, a Squire HSS Strat, this anp, an SD-1 Super Overdrive pedal, and a few 30 and 120 watt speakers if I should ever need them. IF this amp were stolen I'd go a bit higher on wattage, maybe get a Line 6 or something, but for what it is this amp is great. I love that it's affordable and will carry beginners, like me, through. I wish It had a footswitch or something, but hey, what can you expect?
