PROS: Inexpensive, dual inputs and volume controls, thick felt covering, weight is nice but not too light.
CONS: The headphone jack is 1/4", I wish they had put in a 1/8" jack so we didn't have to purchase an adapter.

However, in my time using it, I tried to play it out pretty loud and aggressively to see if it would have the problems some other users stated, and I did not. It is pretty good sound quality for the price. In fact, for $44 or less, you're not going to beat the sound. It sounds like my $110 amp easily.

Also, I just have to say that Monoprice customer service is fantastic. They responded quickly and are eager to fix any issues. I was having some problems with the amp cutting out and they did their best to help me out and were up for replacing it until I figured out it was my bass problem. (crummy battery driving the active pups.) DOI!!!!
