Waves has recently made their own little, portable guitar amp. This thing is meant to strap onto your hip so you can play wherever you are. It's a very small device, and it has a few switches and knobs. At the top, you have the different effects you can dial in. You can choose between chorus, reverb and delay. The knob next to it controls how much of the effect you'd like. Next, you have a wah, trem or phaser switch. The knob to the right controls the aggressiveness of that effect. Finally, you can choose between what kind of amp you want - warm, bright or normal. The knob next to it controls the gain.

UTILIZATION

This thing is really haggard. For one, it's not that versatile at all. The toggle switches themselves are very plastic-y feeling, and I wonder how easily they'll break. I never liked the whole "put an amp on your hip and walk around while playing" aspect, so maybe this thing just isn't for me. On the other hand, it's super simple to setup. Anybody can plug into this and get some sort of sound. Just don't expect anything good. There's really no need to read the manual for this thing.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound is awful. It's buzzy, thin and the effects are trash. Let's start with the effects - for one, you can barely control anything on them. You can either control the intensity or the level. Both of which are pretty much combined into one knob, so it's real hard to dial in anything usable. The amp models themselves sound like pure ass. I wouldn't recommend this to anybody.

OVERALL OPINION

If someone offers to buy you one of these, politely decline it. They're not even worth checking out, it's that bad. The effects suck, the amp models suck, the device feels flimsy, and walking around with an amp on your hip is just plain stupid. Spend your money elsewhere.
