A word about practice amps, to dispel some myths. Many newbie guitar players sneer at amps like this, which delivers only 20 watts, thinking that the bigger an amp is, the better. This is not true – even professional musicians have a few practice amps like this kicking around, simply because carrying your 300 watt monster to the practice room, whilst it may make you look cool, is totally unnecessary!

PROS
  • It delivers more than enough power for practice. With 20 watts of power, it will still go incredibly loud, so you will not have to worry about being heard, no matter how loud your drummer and bassist like to play!
  • The build quality of this amp is something else. From the moment you receive this amp, you will be impressed with how solid it feels, and we are confident that it will put up with years of abuse without complaining.
  • The USB output on this amp is something of a rarity in all-tube amps, and is a really useful feature for the practice room. It will plug directly into your DAW, saving you hours of messing around with microphones!
  • Last, but of course not least, the sound quality is great. With this kind of smaller amp, sometimes when pushed to the limit of their volume, distortion and clipping can start to creep in. Not with this amp, which retains great precision and clarity throughout its range, and has the fidelity necessary to play all genres of music.
CONS
  • Very few. If you are looking for an all-tube practice amp, and who isn’t, this is a great unit to get. It delivers the amazing sound you would expect from a tube amp in an amazingly compact package.
