Sound Quality
I use this amp with an Epiphone Les Paul Standard and a Fender Mexi Strat. It must be noted that although this amp is capable of good tone by itself, you need to run it through a cabinet in order to keep it from breaking up at relatively low volumes. Many people have complained about the amp's clean channel fuzzing out and this happens to me too when I use it without an external speaker. Without a cabinet, it is a more than adequate practice amp, but with a good 4 X 12 such as a Mesa Recto Standard (which is what I use), you get a much fuller, more professional sound that is suitable for small to medium-sized gigs. The amp is also capable of much louder volumes when used with a cab. By the way, the distortion is the closest you'll get to a dual rectifier for a $100. You can also get some ok blues and milder gain tones when you turn down the gain control. The clean channel isn't bad either, especially considering the price.
Reliability/Durability
I've never had a problem with this amp, and it's built fairly well for something so affordable. It's tough alright.
Price/Value
General Comments
This is a nice little amp on its own, but in order to get the most out of it, you need to take advantage of the external speaker jack and hook it up to a cabinet. Maybe that's why the jack is on the front...Anyway, it's a great value overall, and most will find something to like about it. Decent clean tone, great modern-style distortion, and stellar dependability. This model is discontinued, but they sell for $35-40 used. I wouldn't sell mine though. :)
