This thing is pretty unique but the features that give it a cool option aren't enough for a purchase. First off it takes 6 AA batteries and it has about 15 hours of life on them. Basically with my playing habits I would be dumping about 12 batteries in this thing per week give or take. Batteries aren't cheap and this economy sucks right now so that is a big disappointment in this amp. That alone will make me not buy this amp and I wouldn't recommend it just based on that features alone.

SOUNDS

The tone sounds like a normal solid state amplifier. It has that good clean tone and poor low gain and then a fizzy but fun high gain tone. The high gain is a lot of fun to mess around with because it is so hairy and you can add chorus, reverb, or delay to beef up the tone.

I personally like the sound of this amp with a Les Paul or another humbucking style guitar. It like the high gain tone on this amp and it needs that humbucker to get the lead lines my ear is wanting to hear.

Another great feature on this amp is the cutting of vocals or solos if your hooking up your CD player or MP3 player. So you can play you own solo or even singing your own melody for practicing. This is great little tool for practicing your vocal and solo chops.

OVERALL OPINION

Overall this amp for me is a big bust due to the battery operation. If it had a AC plug as well then we'd be talking but this is amiss for me. I like the sound it has which is pretty standard for solid state amps.

At new these units come in at around $170. You can plug three things in at one time which is cool. So I can see this thing being good for the one man band thing on the street. I think there are better amps by Roland than this.
