    is it a tube or solid state amp?
    A shopper on Sep 8, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Weirdly, it does not really say, or at least I didn't see the words "solid state" associated with the product, but it dos not say "tube" anywhere in the description and since that's usually a + point, and something you can charge more for, I'm sure it's a transistor/solid state amp. A tube went bad in my Fender amp and I bought this particular amp until I get around to fixing the Fender. Seems like a nice amp for the money. I like the funny nod to the film, Spinal Tap, with the amp going to 11, cracked me up.
    Does the speaker still work if you plug into 'Line Out''? I want to use this for an instrument stage monitor while sending it direct to the PA. Thanks.
    A shopper on May 10, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Yes the speaker on the amplifier works when a jack is plugged into line out. The speaker does not work when you plug in an external speaker into the jams.
    Can I use a bass guitar on this?
    A shopper on Jun 27, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, but only as a practice amp, not with a band or drummer. You'll quickly overload it and it will distort-eventally destroying the speaker.
    Can I use a bass guitar on this?
    A shopper on Jun 27, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: You could but I wouldn't use it for gigging with a bass, don't think the speaker would take a constant loud volume.. it is a good amp for guitar.
    How does it ship? UPS? Is it returnable if I don't like it?
    A shopper on Feb 11, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The last 2 I bought were shipped UPS ground. Monoprice has a 30 day return policy for any reason. I have never had to return anything to them. and I highly recommend them. For what it is worth, I have owned many amps by many manufacturers and this is the best amp for the money in my opinion.
    How wide and tall is this amp?
    A shopper on Sep 9, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: The Full Specs section of the product page says Dimensions 16.5" x 16.7" x 8.7" (420 x 425 x 220 mm)
    How long does it take to ship?
    A shopper on May 30, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Usually takes about a day to leave our warehouse.
    Is the line out balanced (TRS) or unbalanced (TS)? I suspect unbalanced...
    Carl B on Nov 2, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your interest in this guitar amp. The line out is a TS unbalanced line level output.
    Will this amp work in other countries, for instance with 230V power?

    Great Price on a 40 Watt amp
    This is a single channel, 40 watt amplifier, with a 10 inch speaker.

    It has a clean side with 3 tiers of equilibration 9 (Treble, mid, and bass), reverb control, and master loudness level.

    The distortion side has a gain and volume control.

    Both sides work well allowing you to equalize you clean tone with or without reverb, or select the right amount of distortion.

    Rear has out and back in jacks for external effects board.pedal. Front has jack for headphones, line out (so you can send your sound to a PA system or recording interface), and external speaker.

    while the 1x10 speaker sounds fine, I'd love to see a 2x10 or 2x12 set of speakers in a slightly smaller cabinet for a few more $. I used the external speaker jack on the front of the amp to feed a 4 x 10 Fender half stack and the sound was much better.

    The Fender 60 Watt Super Sonic Head that feeds the 4x10 cab speakers does sound much better, but the set sold for $1800 retail and it isn't 18 times better than the Monoprice amp.

    For the price, great 40 watt amp with 1x10 speaker at 19 pounds.

    Would like 2x12 speakers and some onboard effects as these should be cheap electronics these days. Weight for all this about 27 pounds?

    I do like the ability of turning the amp up to 11. Although all of the other level controls are not labeled as 11's, the pots that control them rotate past the label of 10 so you can turn them up past 10. 40 watts is 40 watts. 11 doesn't matter. I don't know if that's 40 watts peak to peak or 40 watts RMS? For some reason 40 watts in a solid state amp doesn't sound as warm or as loud as 40 watts in a tube amp.

    IIRC to double the loudness of an amp, it is logarithmic which means to double the loudness of a 10 watt amp, you need a 10 ^2 or 100 watt amp.

    This will do anything you need in an indoor room.

    PROS: Cost, quality of sound and construction, spring reverb, front jacks for external speaker, headphones, and line out. Read jacks for external effects out and back in.

    CONS: 1 x 10 speaker. Would love 2x 10 or 2 x 12 for a bit more $

    Good little amp for the money
    This amp actually sounds better than my cheap little Fender amp with a 12" speaker.

    I was slightly discouraged that it didn't have a line input, and almost didn't purchase it, but decided to give it a shot, since it was so cheap. I'm glad I did. If you plug a device into the Aux Return, that is effectively a line input. It bypasses all of the controls (including master volume, so you've got to set the level on your input device). This is exactly what I need most of the time, since I use a Line6 POD guitar amplifier modeler and I have all the effects and such that I need on that device. It can just be plugged into the Aux Return and this amp is just an amp.

    PROS: The amp has quite a lot of power for a small package. I have to leave the master volume fairly low to keep the volume reasonable. If I actually took it to 11, I would be causing permanent hearing damage.

    The electronics are quiet. It doesn't have a lot of hum when it is just sitting there, like many amps do.

    CONS: The overdrive section functions well and just a little bit of gain goes a LONG way. I almost wish the gain would start out a little lower and slowly ramp up to insane. As it stands, giving it any gain immediately starts BIG distortion.

    I really wish it supported a footswitch to enable the overdrive section. It's fairly simple engineering to add a 1/4" jack for a footswitch, so maybe they will do that in the future.

    The spring reverb works well, but again, like the gain knob in the overdrive section, a little goes a long way. Anything past halfway is just ridiculous. I wish they gave a narrower range of effect and I had the full range of the knob to dial it in better.

    These are just quibbles of course. I love the amp, but want to give my honest opinion, in the hopes that the product team actually reads these comments.

    COULDN'T BE HAPPIER - (Just buy one already!)
    After decades of not owning an electric guitar, I recently purchased Monoprice's Strat-like guitar and this amplifier.

    I was amazed and surprised at the power, clarity and range of this amplifier. I previously owned a cheap practice amp, then a Fender Twin Reverb, then a large Acoustic Stack in the 1970s, and am impressed at the advances made since those days that could produce an amplifier for this price. While I haven't compared it to everything else out there, for the money, I can't imagine there being any rival. I'd give it 11 Stars if I could!

    As for all the suggestions of other customers: Adding a second speaker, a tremolo, a foot pedal, etc. I hope Monoprice is listening...add them all up, add some more watts and you have the ingredients of a second, unparalleled amp! Meanwhile, I'll play my heart out on this one!

    PROS: Amazing value. Easy to use. Overdrive. Goes to 11.

    CONS: Could refine the range of the reverb and overdrive controls, but not a big deal.
    June 30, 2014

    PROS: I give a "10" because it is a very good, inexpensive amplifier. Tone means everything to me, so small amps usually have to have a 12 inch speaker to deliver the warm sound that I prefer. This amp, although it has a 10 inch speaker, is a suitable replacement for my Crate amp ( with a 12 inch speaker). The 40 watt output is surprisingly strong enough for a clean sound in most small rooms.

    CONS: No real cons. I've been playing the guitar all my life (over 50 years), so I've learned not to expect much from inexpensive amplifiers. This amp was much better than I expected. I would, however, like to see a delay effect (with the ability to vary the length of delay) put into the unit, along with the reverb effect. I would also bet that the addition of a 12 inch speaker, even if it cost a little more, would make this an even more outstanding value for most players.

    I don't play gigs, just play casual player. I also have a modeling amp that I use but wanted something with a clean sound and this does the job. For the price, you can't beat it. If you are on the fence, don't worry - try it out. I have one of their Route 66 guitars and the combo does sound great!

    PROS: Love the "11" on volume!!

    Sound is everything I expected.

    Sturdy construction.

    Price - cant beat it.

    CONS: None Yet.

    My Review of 40 watt 1x10 Guitar Amp
    If you need a small practice amp.....this is it!

    PROS: Great amp for the money. Been looking for a small practice amp and this one is perfect. A lot of power and great tone. O own five guitars and four amps and this best of the bunch for the money. Great service and shipping, arrived on scheduled day via UPS.

    CONS: No tremelo circuit.
    February 20, 2014
    Have been playing guitar professionally on and off for over 45 years, have used or heard many amps in numerous genres, but this one stood out for the sound/price comparison. I'd rather take this 20 lb amp to a small gig than haul my 50lb Fender amp. My 35 yr old son thinks set right, it gets close to his Vox AC30 tube amp on the gain channel, but then again what do kids know. I think it sounds pretty good clean, and with a good overdrive pedal and a Monoprice delay pedal recently purchased, it sounds pretty good live or close mic'd in my studio.

    PROS: Very good amp for the money in my opinion, great clean, reverb better than most DSP's. A great amp for a beginner opposed to the cheap 15 watt practice amp that beginners usually get. Makes a big difference in the learning curve with a decent guitar.

    CONS: Overdrive channel can be set to get a somewhat decent sound, depending on your likes, but gain control is very sensitive, doesn't take but a slight nudge and the overdrive is up there.

    Could be a good gigging amp
    First impression: With the bass cranked and the mid/treble set to moderate, and through the 'gain' channel, this thing has good chug for a "10 speaker. With its solid state circuitry, could be a good gigging amplifier, but micing to a P.A. would probably be necessary for all but the smaller venues. Still, it's pretty loud, and would be good in rehearsal.

    I would love to see this with one or two 12" speakers, and maybe in 60w or 100w, and with closed back. All in all, as it is, it would be tough to find more for your money than you get with this here amplifier.

    PROS: Fairly lightweight, and with good 'chug' and 'spank' to its sound.

    CONS: Would like a 12" speaker with closed back.

    Great little practice amp!
    This amp is great for the price. Mainly for practicing, but you could even use this for a small show. Sound is very comparable to the Roland Cube (which costs more than double this). Overall I was surprised by the quality of the tone for the price. It has a very nice retro sound with the spring reverb. Kinda surf guitar Dick Dale or early Beach Boys. I would recommend this for anyone who's looking for a inexpensive practice amp or just wants an amp period! It kinda makes me want to try one of the guitars Monoprice sells.

    PROS: Price, performance, sound

    CONS: none for me

    Nice Amp
    Another great deal from Monoprice. I'd love to see a couple short videos on some basic settings that match the guitars now being sold at MP.
