This thing is a god damn tank, it's lived with me for over 10 years and survived my earliest days on the club circuit in Providence. Bad venue power, falling down flights of stairs, it just keeps on kicking. Great, punchy tone for what you pay for it - it won't cut at insanely high volumes or anything, but it's got a nice, easy XLR out for gigs, so the sound guy can slap a cable into it instead of miking. It's not pro gear, but it's been with me for a long time and it's so reliable that I have to show the love here.
