General Comments:
This amp is a great little Blues amp.

15-Watts 1-10" speaker

One Volume and One Tone knob

What do you especially like about this product?
What I really like about this amp is the Tone.

The Tone is Thick,Full,well-rounded and just Bluesy as all get-out.

It's a totally different amp than the Blues Junior of which I have owned 3 of them and they just weren't keepers. Horrible Noisy Reverb Thin,Crappy Tone

What do you dislike about this product?
What I really dis-like about this amp is the Crappy Tubes that come in them.

Are the guys at the Fender factory playing Baseball with these Tubes before they out them in the amps.

I had to replace every Tube in the amp before I paid for it to make surte that was the source of the unbelievably loud Hum,Crackling and Hiss coming from the Amp.

Straight out of the box this amp is useless. After replacing the Tubes,,,it's a great little amp.

Definitely a keeper.

The tubes are the reason for the low overall rating I give this amp.

General Comments:
Couldn't be happier. 2 channels that plays like three. The clean channel has a crunch that you can add to it via the remote switch, and then the lead channel. Foot switch also has an effects button for you to play around with if you run through the send return. Personally I just throw everything in line from my guitar so the effects switch doesn't get used. I may play around a bit with that though to get a more direct sound from guitar to amp.

What do you especially like about this product?
Here we go. I play hard rock/heavy metal music. Mostly Van Halen (of course) and Metallica. Of course I wanted a Mesa Dual Recti for that heavy crunch but the Mesa has an even heavier crunch on the wallet. A friend had a 5150 that I wasn't real fond of so I was suspcious of the 5150II. Talk about day and night. The 5150II is 120 watts of pure kick ass high gain. It's no dual rectifier but it comes damn close. There is plenty of gain and then some on this beast. I highly recommend running through a 5150 4x12 cab if you want to bring out the true personality of this beast. Sounds OK through a Marshall 800 cab and sounds like total dog poo through a Marshall 900 cab. But, the 5150II and the 5150 cab are made for each other so you can't really go wrong. I'd like to hear it through a recti cab just for shits and giggles. Anyway, this thing is a beast and it will give you what you want......if you're into the heavier side of rock. Gotta play with the knobs a bit to find your tone but it's probably there. I borrowed a guys recti the other night after practice and couldn't really pick up a huge difference in sound. Of course I was running his head through my cab, but still. This amp is good enough for that hard rock sound unless you're totally picky and have a lot of money. Almost forgot. This thing has balls the size of an elephant. I play medium sized clubs, no miking on my amp at all, and I only turn the main volume up to 4. That is plenty to get over the miked drums. This F***er is loud and it's made to be played that way. The sound gets really good when you turn it up but it's just too much unless you're in a bigger place.

What do you dislike about this product?
Don't recommend doing the pre gain over 5 or 6 unless you want to blow your ears out from the screeching. I have to use a noise suppresor to keep it from screaming and that in turn kills my sustain. Anyone that has any advice in that area will get my first child named after them. No reverb. I wouldn't use to much but it would be nice to have it.
