Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Adapter

Adapter:
"NOTE that when using the adapter jack, it requires a plug with a (-) negative center pin."
_
"The only problem is that the battery seems not to be that durable, so I bought a power adapter."
_
"One caveat: buy an AC adapter, as this amp drains a battery quickly, and when the battery gets low the amp clips very easily."
_
"I don't know if buying the AC adapter would fix the problem, but if I have to use one to play, then my purpose for buying this is lost."
_
"Please, Please get the recommended AC adapter."
_
"Love that it fits perfectly in my case with its 9V adapter (purchased separately)."
_
"But if you just want to use it to practice at home (and you have buy an adapter), it's a good purchase."
_
"Works really well with a 9v DC adapter, but it's pretty useless when battery powered."
_
"I highly recommend getting the adapter for home use."

Battery

Battery:
"The only problem is that the battery seems not to be that durable, so I bought a power adapter."
_
"worked great at beginning but...after 2 weeks the sound fades in and out,and I tried new batteries still no good :(but I fixed it myself!"
_
"The only downside was that it came with a Danelectro-labeled 9V battery that was almost dead; I imagine it had been sitting in a warehouse somewhere for quite some time."
_
"One caveat: buy an AC adapter, as this amp drains a battery quickly, and when the battery gets low the amp clips very easily."
_
"only complaint- battery doesn't last too long."
_
"I exchanged the product in store (Guitar Center), but the moment I put in the battery and turned on the 'new' amp, the problem was immediate."
_
"I thought the branded 9 volt battery that matched the color of the amp was a pretty cool touch, but realistically I can't even play the amp on battery power alone."
_
"This little amp is great for sitting around and practicing with and the fact it is battery operated is a plus if you want to use it camping or outdoors with a few friends."
_
"It gets decent life out of a 9v battery, but it would still be wise to use 9v rechargeables or the 9v power adapter (D'Addario Planet Waves 9 Volt Adapter, etc)."
_
"I've seen other reviews where people have complained about power drop-outs, but considering that this only runs off of a single 9-volt battery and it's cranking out quite a bit of volume it's probably going to drain the battery pretty fast if you use it continuously."
_
"Works really well with a 9v DC adapter, but it's pretty useless when battery powered."

Color

Color:
"I thought the branded 9 volt battery that matched the color of the amp was a pretty cool touch, but realistically I can't even play the amp on battery power alone."
_

_

_
"Nice color to match my guitar body."
_
"Cool looking retro vibe with beautiful colors."

Distortion

Distortion:
"The distortion is kinda disappointing, as any thing past around 4-5 is just a fuzzy mess and sounds rather bad."
_
"Fun little amp, almost too much distortion at times but for this price what are you expecting? "
_
"As a guitar payer i'm very impressed as it gets pretty loud and can maintain a nice clean sound when you turn off the distortion, but the distortion on this guy sounds amazing and gives it an extremely raw sound that many high end amps can't do."
_
"The overdrive gives nice distortion and quite a bit of re-verb."
_
"This thing gets loud and sounds nice and clear and includes an overdrive knob which allows you to give your playing a nice vintage-styled distortion."

Guitar

Guitar:
"It is missing a lot of nob in order to fix my guitar sound because there is too much overdrive when it is play."
_
"The only drawback I can see is that if one is not a great guitar player, it does enhance and multiply my mistakes too!"
_
"its sounds terrible with both my guitars (Epi Les Paul Special with stock pickups Squire Strat with SD HotRails in bridge) so i cant imagine its the pick ups."
_
"This amp will sound a little muddy if you are playing fuller, open chords on an electric guitar with the overdrive cranked; but WOW, if you play some lead guitar it can reproduce amazing dirty bluesy tones!"
_
"As a guitar payer i'm very impressed as it gets pretty loud and can maintain a nice clean sound when you turn off the distortion, but the distortion on this guy sounds amazing and gives it an extremely raw sound that many high end amps can't do."
_
"I bought it to practice bass guitar and am very satisfied so far (1 week)."
_
"However if you have a guitar with P90s you are in for a great treat if you are into thick and growling runs."
_
"Nice color to match my guitar body."
_
"The amplifier works perfectly with both my acoustic electric guitar and ukulele."

_
"Loud, easy, what I wanted."
_
"As a guitar payer i'm very impressed as it gets pretty loud and can maintain a nice clean sound when you turn off the distortion, but the distortion on this guy sounds amazing and gives it an extremely raw sound that many high end amps can't do."

_
"It sounds great and it is nice and loud."

Portable

Portable:
"Obviously it doesn't sound as good as my Fender Frontman 25r amp because it's a portable amplifier, but for the small little package, I'm able to get some pretty good and versatile tones out of it."
_
"I had to get a portable amp in a pinch and I couldn't be more pleased."
_
"Great little portable amp which rich tones."
_
"When I purchased this amp I expected very little in terms of volume and quality, at best I figured it would be a cheap portable amp that could barely play loud and clear enough for a small quiet room."
_
"This is a great little portable which does far more than one would expect."
_
"Also, it get's a good deal louder than other portable mini amps I've heard, but too much volume or gain will muddle up the sound real fast on such a small unit, so don't just crank it up to 11 right out the gate."
_
"Its main advantage is that it's nice and portable for traveling, etc."

_
"Great inexpensive little amp when it works, but we've now gone through two."

Quality

Quality:
"Cool little amp, just hook up the headphones and away you go, can;t believe you can get this quality for such a small price, but then again I've been using Danelectro effects pedals for years and have always been impressed with the quality of effects and how sturdy they were, only problem I would have with this item is how it looks, I'm all for retro looks, but this item looks much better in the photos than in real life.... looks like a dorky toy."
_
"The quality is not The best"
_
"I'm sure anyone who knows how to play would probably want something better quality but for me it was perfect."
_
"When I purchased this amp I expected very little in terms of volume and quality, at best I figured it would be a cheap portable amp that could barely play loud and clear enough for a small quiet room."
_
"It still has a good volume, sound and quality without the heavy price tag for someone who plays guitar for leisure."
_
"If you're looking for something to make some noise other than basic strings this is good for you, but if you want something that puts out best sound quality I'd probably look someplace else if I were you."
_
"I'm not ready yet to purchase a good quality Fender or Fishman amp."
