It's smaller than you think it will be. It sounds better than you think it will sound. It is not as loud as you expect. I bought this to pair with my Music Man Bongo 5. I needed something small. This amp has an incredible punch; it sounds excellent — a noticeable difference from my Fender Rumble. It is not very loud, however. I mic to play on stage. And I mic to record, so that does not bother me.
