I took a gamble and bought this amp, and while it's not a bad amp, it's not a good fit for me, personally. First off, the amp does have a standby switch, three band EQ, two channels, and while I haven't removed the back panel, I did look through the opening, and the speaker does say Celestion on the back. This amp is TINY. It's smaller than the 1 watt Blackstar HT1 combo amp I used to own!
Moving on, while the electronics seem to be of good quality, the cabinet is so-so, but given the price point, I'll overlook that. My biggest gripe: The clean ("clean") channel dirties up WAY too quickly. I tried almost all my electric guitars, whose pick ups range from higher output humbuckers, to near-PAF type 'buckers, to hot single coils, to near vintage spec single coils. The amp "felt" best when played with lower output single coils pups, but again, I think it drives too easily. I may try swapping out the 12AX7 for a 12AY7 and see if that cleans it up...
