pretty good
Misul, 01.01.2020
Honestly, for its price it is not just decent, but great. Moreover, if you are a beginner this is perfect, because there are not a lot of buttons unneeded, so making your setup should not be hard. However, if you are pro, you should consider saving up more money and buying something with more features, unless you already have a full pedalboard.

pros;
- really easy to use
- 2 channels
- it has a tap button for the FX (effects) so that you can change the effect the way you want to
- sound great, I don't see any problem
- for 40W its volume is too big, I mean at first I thought it's gonna be a quiet amp, and that's why I was looking at a 100W one, but it shocked me to see that it has such a big volume and resonance for such a little amp

cons;
- it has some effects, but they are not great, so you should still look at some pedals (nevertheless, for beginners it's still pretty great)
... and that's it. Frankly, I cannot find too many cons for this amp.

Per overall, it is a great amp, for beginners, and for pro, as long as you have a pedalboard.

Great amp for the price range
Vaseer, 28.09.2020
Using for practice home and with folk.

This amp has great clean sound, and very decent overdrive, vib and reverb effects.

Includes an aux-in so one can easily plug into a phone/pc and play with a backing track.

Clean channel is crisp enough, and clear - includes a treble and bass control, so there's flexibility in altering the tone to one's contempt. Can range from crisp clear, to fat and bluesy without much effort.

Works amazing when paired with something like BluesBreaker pedal.

Gets loud enough to cover a band in practice/small venue.

Definitely recommend if searching for great cleans and/or blues sound.

Pros:
- Amazing clean channel
- Good reverb, vibrato and overdrive(particularly metal and brit rock voice)
- Celestion speaker
- 40W output - gets loud enough to cover practice band or small venue
- Aux in for backing track play - simple and just works
- Light enough to not bee too much of a burden
- Great range of tones

Cons:
- Outside of the effects mentioned in ^^, the rest are meh
- Aux-in volume control MUST be done from the playback device - amp has no control over that - BE WARNED - if you blast your phone full volume through aux, its deafening - lower volume first before plugging in. Amp vol knob will have NO effect on aux in.
- No possibility of connecting to PC and adding new effects

Super good value for home and gig - advanced and beginners
FelixOscar, 09.01.2018
I am using this combo with my 60s strat.

PROs:
First of all - the clean sound is fenders strength, also in this one! The build in effects are very nice and give you a broad range to start off if you do not have pedals. I am using it at home, for gigs and rehearsals. Everywhere it performed very well. The size is handy, it is light and the price is a dream for what you get. I first wanted to buy a Blackstar, Mustang or Boss modelling combo but this convinced me more. It sounds more real I think and with some pedals there is nearly no limit.
Especially for beginners I would say: BUY this. You can also plug in your phone via AUX and do playalongs also using headphones.

CONs:
I am only missing a very clean reverb (but I am being very pick here so dont mind)

Summary:
You cant do no wrong buying this I would say. Love it! :)

If you want to play with clean sound in mind, it's a fantastic sounding combo, effects are stunning, tone control works, built-in speaker sounds just fine, headphone output included with stereo effects even dough amp is mono.
The down side are distortion effects, very digitally edgy to me in contrast to the nice sounding clean channel. All in all - good Fender amp for everybody who likes classic Fender Clean sound!
