I ordered this mostly out of curiosity, since it was so small and cheap... and that's exactly what it sounds like: small and cheap. I'm sure many guitarists could have some fun with it as a sort of novelty gadget, but I can't imagine using it for practice or as a general-purpose travel amp, as the sound is so harsh and distorted. I expect I'll be returning it.

My girlfriend gave me this amp as an early X-mas present this year and I must say, this amp sounds incredible. I also own one of those tiny Marshal battery powered amps which is more adjustable, but the sound doesn't compare. This amp sounds incredible for a tiny amp -- so much so that I plan to mic it and use it for recording. I'm buying 2 more -- one of the high gain amps, and one of their cigarette pack amps so I can mic all 3 and use it as a recording setup. This amp is worth every penny, and they even include a Duracell 9v battery pre-installed and a (cheap) 1/4" instrument cable so you can start playing with it as soon as you take it out of the package. I'm VERY happy with this little amp. Even though it doesn't have a volume control, it's still super cool.

I can't believe this thing. It is very loud, and has a great fuzz tone to it. Can't wait to start recording parts with it!

For some reason I was expecting an amp around 10 or 12 inches high, but it's actually about the size of a computer mouse, perfect for tucking into a pocket or a gig bag. It's also delightfully purple and sparkly. My daughter, who's a girly girl, should love it! There's a battery and cord included too, which is nice--no scrambling around on Christmas morning looking for batteries, etc., when she wants to crank up her new electric guitar.

I'll add a note about the sound quality when we've had a chance to check it out.

These little mini amps work great, although Amazon wasn't selling the latest one which is a high gain guitar amp. I love the color of mine, however and it's so portable. Use it for my harmonica blues when out and about.

Makes a great travel amp and has a cool sound to it. Run it in a chain and see what flavors it adds to your mix. The only thing I wish it had was an adapter port for power because it can eat the batteries.

Great portable amp, my son loves it and it comes in handy when he is checking out new guitars as well, you get a rough idea of the sound differences.
