This amp is great for practice. It's 4 watts of raw tube power. It is incredibly pedal friendly. Its perfect for small practice spaces or apartments/dorm rooms. Its got a power scaling switch on it that lets you select from the full 4 watts to 1 watt to 1/4 watt. That way you can play quietly but still get a lot of crunch out of the amp without having to bother anyone around you! It has served me well and I hope it does the same for you! Feel free to make offers guys! I'd like to get the $200 but it's not set in stone!
