Pros:Small and portable, 3-band EQ.
Cons:Doesn't sound too good.
The Bottom Line: Not worth your time. Find a better sounding alternative, even if you have to save up for it. You'll be more satisfied in the long run.
This is a small 10 watt solid-state practice amp made by Epiphone. Controls: volume, gain, treble, mid, bass and a "boost" switch. The controls are pretty nice for an amp this size, I've seen a couple other small amps with only volume, gain and tone. There's also a headphone jack. I bought this amp because I wanted a very portable amp that I could easily transport when I wanted to jam in my friend's bedroom.
The controls are nice and the size of the amp is great if all you're looking for is something to practice with, but the sound is terrible. It's really tinny. It's almost impossible to get a good clean sound, you need to have the gain up to 2-3 to get any decent volume out of the thing. With the gain up and the boost switch on (the switch is supposed to give you a more powerful sound) the amp puts out an almost acceptable sound, but it still lacks warmth and character. I'm not someone who obsesses over tone and puts down any amp that isn't tube-driven, but the tone out of this amp really isn't good.
I don't know about what alternatives are available, but I definitely think you should look elsewhere if you're shopping for an amplifier. Luckily this was my second amplifier. Had it been my first I might not have been as enthusiastic about playing the guitar.
