This amplifier by Giannini has 15W of power in its very short dimensions. I just could not play in a low volume. My neighborhood just know the mighty power of G5+ it has Bass and Treble controls along with Level and Gain. The Gain is divided in Trhee Stages. Clean that modes the sound to a very very clean tone even if your guitar has a tremolo it get over it letting you hear the exactly notes you are playing. The second Gain Stage is Drive which adds a bit of harshness to the sound. Making a hot sound full of High. And the last stage is Distortion. I personally prefer a Pre-Amplification distortion, but G5+ does a nice over-saturation and makes the sound really distorted when you have no Distortion Pedal. A bad thing in my opinion is that if you plug something on the Phones output, the amplifier no longer let the sound come out it just put all of it in the phones. The Speakers stop talking. In general, it is more than good to a professional to practice at home. Or to a beginner to play wild.
