light and sound

Bought this little amp on the recommendation of my guitar instructor. It's lighter than my lunchbox, and the sound rivals that of my Bugara tube amp. Small enough to pack in a duffle bag for travel. Loaded with options.

Huge sound out of a tiny box!!!

Bought this thinking of a pure practice amp and maybe something for a friend to use when over at my house. Wow, was I way off. This little box has HUGE sound and volume to spare. I would be able to play a coffeehouse or small jam session with this. The tones are as good as anything Boss/Roland has ever put out! Everything from acoustic tones (from my GR-55) to screaming Metal tones, this amp kicks it out with authority! Bob Mondock was, as usual, a great sales consultant to work with. May just have to look at their larger amps now.

This little amp ROCKS!

I bought this as a small practice amp and something I could take to the lake as it can run on AA batteries. The quality of the tone is surprisingly good for such a small device. And the built in distortion selections are better than I expected! It's not a tube amp but with my guitars volume at 10 on the clean selcetion, It actually breaks up kinda like my other amp that a tube amp! Sure it lacks a thick lush bass response but it's tiny and it runs on batteries too. Probably the best feature is the iCube link software that turns your iPad, iPhone or iTouch into a jam track monster. You can slow riffs down and play along until you learn them, change the pitch of the music and even record yourself! It's an awesome practice tool! I play during commercials while watching TV with the wife in the room and she doesn't complain a bit. If I get a bad look from her, it's got a headphone jack too! I love this little gem of an amp!

Great practice amp

For a little battery powered amp it offers a wealth of features and sounds. Convenient and lasts pretty long on the AA batteries. Makes practicing anywhere easier and fun. Recommend for beginer to advanced guitarists who like to play wherever.
