Advantages: Small but powerful enough for home, very small venue, and practice use, attractive, has all relavant features for an amp and a nice price tag for the budget conscious
Disadvantages: No contender to a high-end, powerful Marshall amp for example, obviously
Kustom's KLA10 practice amp is a small, portable and good looking 60 watt amp designed for the home user (who wants to practice obviously). It's mainly been designed for guitarists and bassists, but there's nothing stopping you from plugging in any other electric sound maker.
It maybe small, but it's the best commercially available amp that will satisfy the occasional to the budding noise maker, without upsetting the neighbours. Sound and clarity is great, it's loud enough still (and comes with a headphone socket, just incase even volume 1 is too distressing for other people), and comes complete with gain, volume and voice switches (upto a level of 10), and a distortion (drive) switch for those who fancy 'rawking' a little, and comes encaspulated with a gorgeous bobble-netted speaker, handle, and gorgeous black (fake leather) cabinet casing; and a little leaflet advising desired sound settings for certain types of music.
It's not the greatest amp out there (i.e. it's not a Marshall) but for the music maker at home, for about £60 this is a brilliant buy, that will keep the musician and the neighbours happy. One of my bassist friends owns this amp, and finds it brilliant, and it's pull-offable for live performances too. Great value, great compromise, all the neccesary features, and great looks; buy it! - Recommended by an acoustic drummer...
