This amp is really easy to get a good workable tone out of. I wish this kind of amp was around when I was a kid learning to play - it smokes the little Peavey Rage 158 I used to have! I use this in guitar lessons so my students can get a sound close to whatever style they want to learn in, and it works well for that. I wish I could go in and take out the Tremolo and Sweep Echo presets, permanently - why do kids want the most laser gun sounds out of their guitars? - but everything else is pretty good.

The CD/mp3 in is a great feature for practicing, as is the headphone/record out for practice or recording.

Also, it is very easy to save and recall a preset sound in this little amp.


I'm rating this a 9 based on the price. It is very easy to get the sounds that I want out of it. It's also very easy to get rid of the sounds I don't want, like when my students dial in a radar sweeping spleep bloople noise swoosh sound.

The delays and reverbs are very good, as are all the amp models.


For the cash, and the application, this is nearly perfect. I love this little amp, and was sad when my store told me they wanted me to change what amp I used in my teaching studio, just so they could sell the more modern version to students. I think Line 6 has a good reputation for selling quality products that are affordable, and this amplifier is certainly no exception to that rule.
