Good, violent, hard and real heavy metal distortion... and also affordable!

I haven't tested it yet with multimedia speakers.

It's very nice but you won't sleep a lot because you'll spend all night playing your favorite heavy metal riffs...


Ultra easy, no need for a user's manual. You get a huge distortion with your headphones... and I haven't changed the first batteries I installed. I normally set the gain and tone controls to max and the master volume to 2 or 3.

The sound with headphones is very loud and you won't hear the sound of your TV.

I also took it with me to try out a secondhand guitar at a café... very convenient.


Excellent value for money considering the sound.

The device is faithful to the guitar you're using. Excellent!

It's not very expensive so don't expect an exceptional sound, but it's enough to get a good feeling.

No clean sound but that's no big deal... If you want a clean sound buy the classic rock model (and give up this fat distortion).


I've been using it for two months and I haven't changed the batteries. I don't use it every day but when I plug it in I play for hours.

It's very convenient and you won't have problems anymore with your family and your neighbors.

I hesitated a long time before buying it. It looks like a toy but watch out for your ears... It's a good purchase for people who play a lot and don't want to disturb their environment.

There are also a classic rock and a clean version available...

I give it an 8 because perfection doesn't exist...
