Great little Amplifier

Advantages: Easy to use
Disadvantages: Limited in sound quality
For such a relatively small amplifier, this incredible amplifier really impresses the crowds. I have loved owning this item, and would recommend it to anyone who needs such an item, despite it falling somewhat behind the renowned Marshall products. It has a few downsides, but these are easily counteracted by the upsides.
For starters, it can be a little heavy at times, but the well-placed handle on top helps a great deal. Another little issue is that it can lose its quality when you turn the volume up quite a bit. The sound otherwise is pretty decent, definitely suitable for anyone putting on a pub gig etc. As a synthesizer amplifier, and that really does show at times. Whilst I'd recommend it as a cheaper option for guitar players, singers and the like, it definitely meets the needs of synth players the best.
The quality of sound drops considerably when attempting multiple inputs. The volume for each input then varies, as if each instrument is attempting to overpower the last. So whilst the amplifier offers a massive selection of input channels, I can't see anyone attempts to put on a fairly professional gig using these to the full.
At the end of the day though, it does work like a dream for those wanting something above amateur, but below professional. It's a extra special dream when it comes to bass!
Summary: Great for amateurs, not so great if attempting to look professional.
