I really know nothing about that amp or manufacturer, but it might be rather usable -- especially if you're using a modeler, plugging into the effect return might do pretty well. I wouldn't put much stock in the tone of the preamp, but don't knock an amp until you've tried it.

I guess I'm just not much of a tube snob...

I will admit that all the animated gifs and marquee texts make it look as though the page came straight out of the late '90s...

It looks like a Crate clone...

It's probably usable. I'm not sure how amazing you'd expect for $300.

I think you can get the Crate/Raven/Line 6 halfstacks for like $500. Yeah its almost double the price, but then again it's a name you can trust....

Raven and Crate aren't exactly names I trust...

This negatively affected my tone in ways that I just can't describe.
Then, on a whim, a few years ago I wandered into a Bath and Body Works store at a local mall and picked up some of their gentle foaming anti-bacterial hand cleansers.
The difference in my guitar's sound is so wickedly improved that I no longer feel the need to buy a new amp or pedals or even strings...EVER!
So, it's my belief that tone is in the soap.
Thank you and goodnight.
