|This is a great amp that's loud enough to play at a coffee shop. Very simple but classic Vox tube sound. The attenuator is a nice feature as the volume is the gain control so it has to be turned up before it distorts at all. I also recommend checking out the Lil' Night Train if you're looking for a small amp.|

|The Little Amp That Could . . . And Did Impress Me|

|There's not much to this little amp, no effects, no EQ, no Tremolo, reverb, etc. It's super simple. However, for what it is, it packs a whollop. The sound it delivers has certainly surprised me, even at the 1/4-watt setting. For it's size, it delivers a warm tone and gets 'dirty' quite quickly. However, it's also very responsive to your touch and intricacies. It's not really a 'metal' high gain amplifier, unless you put a distortion pedal in front of it. With a high-gain pedal, it'll deliver, with the ability to translate your nuances for you and the rest of your listeners to hear.
My only minor preference would be to have it loaded with a Celestion 25-watt G10M Greenback. That, powered by the amp's EL84's and 12AX7 would make this little buddy SING!
However, having said that, the BEST feature is the 16-Ohm extension jack to allow you to plug into a cabinet of your choice. This feature alone allows greater versatility, especially if you already own a few different cabinets. This makes this Class A amp a great amp for studio use -- it's not so big in size or wattage, but it's huge in sound and versatility!
I recommend it to anyone regardless of playing ability, or use. If you can afford a small quality tube amplifier, pick this one up. It'll enhance your playing and will give you years of good tone!|

|Great beginner amp|

|Excellent for beginners looking for a nice amp. Quiet enough for room playing, but packs a punch if needed. Only negative is that is doesn't have many features.|

|I've had this amp for 2 years and it has been great. Simple , fantastic tone, and on the 1/4 watt setting you can crank it up till it sizzles in a small room.|
