Bought mine for $80 on Craigslist. Served me well until I could save money for a Vox tube amp , which I have since purchased. Have no plans to get rid of it. I am using it for my practice drum machine and for my Ovation Elite acoustic/electric guitar. Good set of tones, effects, and jacks. Bought the footswitch for it on eBay for $12 plus $6 shipping. The midi foot controller , fc-1010 I think, could take this amp lot farther.
I've had this combo amp for over a decade and its still my only amp. The metal tones you can get out of this amp with no pedals is... okayish at best. The main draw to this amp is that its a cheap 2x12 and this is definitely a case of "you get what you pay for." Honestly you're probably better with a Line 6 combo amp whether you want to play metal or not. On top of it all, this amp is unreasonably heavy in terms of weight and doesn't have any casters. So don't get this amp, save up and get something better.
