Where did you purchase this item? International Musicland in Ottawa, ON
Is this item new or used? Brand new. Released this year by Crate.
Features: Standard gain/high/mid/low/level tone/EQ controls. Mono 8 ohm/150watt or stereo 4ohm/75watt speaker outputs, stereo CD-in, stereo line-in/effects loop, XLR output. Amp comes with a carry case for convenience.
Construction: Looks like it could stop bullets, casing is solid steel. Knobs are smooth, no unnecessary grinding.
Sound: Clean tone is crystal clear. Full gain has just a bit of tube-y overdrive bite. Sounds very much like old EVH with gain controls at full.
Ease of Use: Not much to it. The tone controls are simplistic enough, and this is a single-channel amp.
Reliability: I've owned it for a whole month, can't honestly say if it will last another 100, but its rugged construction leads me to believe that the only reason it would break down is circuitry failure.
Overall: Sounds great, looks interesting, weights less than 5 (yes, five) pounds. Plays LOUD.
Experience Level: Been playing 12 years.
