I also have one from Marshall, so you probably want to check it out as well. What I like about the one from Fender comparing to Marshall is a way better clean sound (which is expected because Fender has a separate Gain controller). If you don't really play on clean, then I'd rather get Marshall because it just sounds better to on distortion. Marshall Amps M-MS-2W-U Micro Guitar Amplifier
And yeah, if you want a really good sound - then you will have to spend more than that, but again, this little thing totally worth its $40.
I was pretty surprised at the range of sounds the little guy can produce (from distortion grungy to a softer bluesy tone). It does not come with a power adapter but we already have on in the apartments and works well with that or with a battery. Battery life is also pretty good. I've had the same battery in there for several months already, playing several times a week and sometimes leaving it on accidentally for a day or two and no signs of battery drain so far.
It is a little frustrating sometimes, as another reviewer mentioned, to remove the distortion but with enough fiddling, I found a setting that was acceptable to my ears.
While I didn't need volume, this little guy can be loud! No weakness there.
I also plugged an acoustic-electric classical guitar into the mini tone master and it also worked surprisingly well.
Though there are two things you should know about it:
1. It constantly has a little noise or static in the background. So its great if you just want to use it for everyday/beginner practice like me. But if you are looking for something to use professionally, I would suggest you invest a little more money and get a better one.
2. It has a socket for a 9V dc cable and a slot for a 9V battery but the product does not come with batteries or cables. So when you buy it, make sure you also buy a 9V DC power plug or be prepared to buy batteries often.
Apart from that, I am quite happy with my product and I would recommend it to guitarist who need one for daily practise
Yes it is small, it is ment to be a FUNCTIONAL REPLICA AMP.
that being said it is a nice little replica that resembles a true tone master amp very well. it would look nice on your desk with a tele or strat replica leaning on it. even the mini knobs are the correct design for this amp.
looks aside its the sound that really matters and where this thing really does get the job done. its clean tone does have the mention distortion when u crank it 8.5-10, however, anyone that has ever used a tube amp knows that this is what happens when the tubes get natural overdrive, now i dont know if that was fenders motive in designing it this way, but it is kinda cool when you think about it. it is quiet without any gain, so you will have to use it on about 7 or 8. however the clean tone is THE BEST i have heard on any practice amp, save the fender champ tube amp.
the gain knob adds some nice overdrive from about 2-5 and anything past 6 kinda sounds the same and just gets dirty. but in the range of 2-5 you can find a nice crunch.
The tone blend is so so, on 1 the sound is kinda choked and on 10 it is very bassy, but the range of 2.5-6 is not bad and most of the work is done btw those digits
Good: very fluid jazzy clean tone \ good posthardcore/indie/blues crunch \ compact enough for bring to lessons or have in a dorm \ headphone jack to play in your dorm or aptm.
Bad: Tone knob only contributes decent tone from about 3-7 \ some dont like it's tiny size (look at the jack for reference)\ 9v battery can bounce around and cause the amp to turn off
Over all: Excellent tone for a small amp and in my opinion sounds better than amps up to 300$ or 400$
To other reviewers: This is just beyond a practice amp people. You are going to invest more into a real fender amp before you record, though you could with this, in one of those fuckit moments why not?
