I mean in a pinch if you have nothing else, it's not the worst sound ever imagined but it's pretty terrible. The highs are a bit over pronounced and shrill. The longer you have it, the more you'll be aware of it's limitations. It has an interesting amp/speaker simulation quality, and if you were able to tame the EQ some more I could see it being useful because it is kind of unique. I used it as a cleanish boost with the highs rolled out, a tiny gain, and the volume at 100%, but it's hardly even usable that way.
