    It's amazing and loud

    I just got one of these and it blew me away immediately. Not only does it sound good but it is loud. My friend could hear it clearly from 300 feet away and it wasn't even on half volume. To sum it up it really just blows me away.

    Best small wattage amp I've ever used!

    Best sound I've ever gotten from tiny portable amp.

    5 Stars Based On All Other Items In This Catagory. Does it sound as good as say a Roland Micro Cube? Of course not. Does it sound better than a Danelectro or a Pignose? Totally. The build quality is incredible. The sound is great for the appications that I use a battery amp for. It has a chromatic tuner.
    To echo the other reviewers, this is likely the only one of these things that is branded by an amp company you've heard of that isn't a toy.

    This was on clearance as a demo. I couldn't resist. I travel a little with work sometimes and messing around with a six string in the hotel room beats TV. I've been using a Honeytone lately. Clean, fun little unit but I just listed it on eBay. It'd be a shame to leave it at home when someone else could be rocking their coffee break.

    With free shipping it's worth every bit of $70 bucks.

    Fantastic little thing!

    I was impressed by the sound. I used a small portable Fender before but it sounded scratchy and even got some radio wave interference. This one sounds like an amp.

    Best 9 volt amp ever.

    Don't waste money on the Fender or Marshall versions.
    They are toys. This sounds like a "real" amp.

    Awesome for something so little.

    Wow nice. and easily transportable in a small backpack or something like that. Great pinch harmonics and drive. Has a little bit of a buzz when overdrive button is engaged. Not much but a tad. Cleans are nice if you turn up the tone to get more treble but not perfect but what do you expect in such a small package. Good clean better than most large more expensive solid state amps. Orange did a great job with this one. It has way more power than you would expect from a 3watt solid state amp. More than you'd need for the kind of playing one would do with this amp. I played it on level 3 with drive and to 5 clean in my bedroom when i got it today. I thought it didnt work at first but you have to plug your guitar in before the battery will kick on. Orange told me over the phone it is a battery saving feature that they added. Nice, I got it as a free gift when i bought my Orange 30Watt dual Terror, which I freaking really love. Rock on all!

    It's not terrible. But it's not that great

    Looks better than it sounds. I got roped into the orange look on this one. Needed something I could move around the house easily and store in a drawer. It does it's job ok but there are better sounding 3w amps with more features for the same price. I should have just bought a second black star fly. I have one of those at work to play at lunch and I really prefer it over this one.

    Sound is Lacking

    The more I use this amp the more disappointed I am. It is small and easy to operate but the small speaker sounds like a small speaker. There is also no "clean" mode, it has distorted and more distorted, and I find that the distortion is mostly annoying - more buzzy than creamy. If you're playing the right song with the right style, it can sound pretty good. But it mostly has the one sound which limits its use as a practice amp, and I'd never want to use it for recording.
