"Great amp"

Let me begin by saying I'm not a fan of amp modeling. This amp is sort of an amp modeler even though they don't advertise it as such. The don't have a control knob that dials in certain amps that they are recreating, but they have a dial that is called voice which essentially does the exact same thing. It does change the voice but it can be very dramatic like an amp modeler would do. When I think of voice changing I think of something subtle that slowing changes the voicing, but not sounds completely like a different amp. Not that there is anything wrong with that but it does amp model. This is a cool amp!

I am not generally a fan of Fender's approach to amp modeling. I think Roland and Peavey do the best at amp modeling. I have never been a fan of Line 6 modeling either. Their sounds are always thin and brittle to me. Which is the same feeling I get with most of Fender's amp modeling tones. However, this amp has gotten my attention. This one to me is by far the best example of a solid amp that has a hybrid circuit. I'm guessing what that means is they use solid state along with the preamp and power amps tubes that are in it. This feature is what gives this amp a leg up on the other Fender amp modeling products. It actually has a natural feel and sound to it because of the tubes.

Another nice features is that it has effects built right into the amp. So this an great amp for bedroom playing or office playing and all you need is a guitar. It doesn't have a headphone jack so you cannot play silently.


A couple more great features is that it has a speaker output which means you can hook it up to a 2x12 or a 4x12 speaker cabinet for some pushing of air. Plus it has a line out for going into a power amp, direct PA, or even a recording device.

At new these units come in at around $240, which isn't a bad price. For the options it has and the price point they come in they is a great value for the money. If you are looking for a solid practice amp that will be a good learner amp for beginners or even something that won't be too loud that gets a good sound, then this might be your amp.
