I bought this product because I'd tried it out before and liked it. It has a nice tone, the overdrive is not too muddy and it fits easily in my bag. Works great but it goes through batteries rapidly (I've had to buy a rechargeable 9v for it) and after about two hours use the overdrive does go horribly muddy and the clean setting sounds like overdrive!
So overall, a nice little amp for those who don't want to lug around a proper one, but be aware that its small size means small practice sessions and a large amount of battery power.

OK - so we're talking a very mini amp here so it would be silly to expect too much.
As long as you don't crank it too high, it does its job well. I find it especially good when used with electro acoustics. It's also OK with electrics, but it doesn't take kindly to being driven too hard. Thus the 'Overdrive' (OD) setting needs careful and judicious use or you end up with a really grating roar that isn't either pleasant or musical.

I often use it with earphones for quiet practice, and this is where it comes in very useful with an electric guitar which, unamplified, won't usually project much sound and you can practise to your heart's content whilst hearing the full electric sound in your earphones.

Battery life can be short, but any standard plug-in transformer works well as long as you adjust the polarity and voltage as per the manual.

On balance, then, I recommend this mini-amp for consideration but, as other reviewers have said, the Fender with twin 2" speakers isn't much more expensive and is probably a better buy,

I first bought it thinking that it would be good considering that for 10 pounds more you could get a proper amp.
It isn't Loud at all. It's actually way to quiet.
But soon the Clean setting turns into distortion then distirtion turn horrible muddy sound.
It worked but if i were you i would get another amp.

I purchased this as something to take when a larger amp is too impractical for travel. It does exactly as advertised, the sound quality is fine and gives good volume for its size. The overdrive doesn't really do a lot when the volume is lower but nothing a set of headphones wont cure to enable you to turn it up. The headphone socket is designed for a larger jack, so requires an adapter if you're going to be using standard 3.5mm jack headphones (i.e. iPod headphones etc). As previously mentioned, you will also need a power adapter if you intend to use mains power instead of battery. I picked an adjustable polarity/voltage one up for £4 in a DIY store which works fine and can be used on anything really, so a worthwhile purchase. Overall, good bit of kit for practice/travelling, but not an alternative to the bigger amps if you're wanting the proper sound quality.

I got this for a small practice amp. It can just about manage it, but to me it sounds pretty tacky. Plastic construction, plastic sound.

In the end I gave it away and bought the Fender '57 mini twin - a little larger (it has 2 speakers) but much better - I use it a lot and the sound is fine for what I want. It's also much nicer build (not plastic!) and more versatile, for just a few pounds more.

If your a Marshall freak and want a neat desk ornament, get this one. If you want to play, get the Fender!

I bought two of these for my boys for their electric guitars and was quite impressed by the sound quality on all but highest of volume.Frankly the volume these produce is more than enough for your average house. I already owned a fender mini unit which cost quite a bit more, but these little units are cheaper and great little performers too. Well worth the money and no need to have a large 10-15Watt practice amp cluttering up the place. Great with effects units. All in all a quality audio product from a very respected brand. Usual Amazon top notch service too.

First things first. Anyone expecting a Marshall stack sound to come from this is living in cloud cuckoo land.

The unit provides a faithful reproduction of your guitar's sound and has Volume and Tone Controls. Clean is a dry
clean sound and OD is basically Clean x 4 in Volume which forces a crunch sound.

The coolest use I have for this is as a desktop iphone speaker. Guitar amps generally don't amplify an AUX output but
plug your mp3 player or iPhone into the Guitar Amplifier input of this and you have whisper quiet on Clean up to really loud thru
the OD channel. Great for Sky Mobile TV too.

I am definitely packing it in my case for my next holiday and it looks very cool on my desk at home too.

The little amp looks much more impressive in the picture on this site. I was disappointed that the DC 9V adapter is not included. And the battery supplied is a mercury battery which is very harmful to the environment and is banned in many countries. This gives me a very bad impression as that suggests that the material used for manufacturing must have been cheap/bad quality. I wish the manufacturer could give slightly more effort into that as batteries are not that expensive. It would have worth the money if this was cheaper than 10 pounds. Paying more than 20 pounds for this amp is too excessive for the quality you get.

For the positives, the sound quality is adequate for private practices and it is very mobile.
In conclusion, the amp does all that it was described to do but it barely passes the standard and is too pricey for the quality you get.
I only decided to buy a smaller amp because of lack of space in my room. If you do have more space, consider getting other models or types.

...small packages.

Real quality sound, and suprising volume from such a small unit. This isn't a gimic with the Marshall name attached, but a proper amplifier which has been designed and built with pride. Nice warm distortion as well.

A suitable Nintendo-DS to standard jack lead WOULD be a bonus, but I got a lead and adapter from Maplins without problem.
