My Review:

The backstage amp is one of the cheapest practice amps money can buy. It is small and size though it packs a powerfull punch, thanks to its Transtube technology. The amp is loud and sounds great through a clean line, though if you try and use the overdrive feature you will find that it has a really loud annoying buzz with most pickups. The amp features only two equalization controls, and doesnt really offer much for setting bass and trebel.


If you are looking for an amp at a low price, I can recomend this one. It sounds great through a clean line, but not so great with the overdrive feature. Although you can get the Crate FlexWave FW15 Guitar Combo Amp for the same price and it has many more features and in my oppinon is better all around.
