I have owned this amp for a few years and have yet to find one in the same class that i appreciate just as much. The overdrive channel is amazing imho for the wattage. This won't quite cut above drums, but it is loud for it's size. It has been kicked around and dropped and has held up great through the years.
For the price range I would definately reccomend this amp to any beginner to anyone who wants something to practise with. Props to Jim and the gang for creating an affordable practise amp for us.
