    Looks like a stripped down Laney Cub 8. Kinda cute. Let us know what it's like when you get it. It's certainly inexpensive.

    I figure it will make a good amp for those low volume band practices

    Please let us know what you think about the tone. It's cool that it comes with a Celestion Super 8 speaker.

    It's also $125 on Monoprice's website.

    With an additional 10% off this weekend. Pretty good deal!

    I have bought a fair bit of stuff - mostly audio, HDMI, etc. cables - from them over the years and I've always been impressed with their quality and service.

    Be sure to review it on Amazon when you get it. I've had them send me gift cards for leaving the first review on a new product.

    Looks neat, single 6V6 and 8" like a Champ 600.

    Let us know how it sounds!

    I'd like to see some gut shots , and some of the 15 watt version. They are both cheap enough for sure

    I did a little research, these Monoprice amps appear to be the same as the Laney Cub amps, here is a gut shot of the Laney Cub12R , looks pretty clean inside

    Still I would like to read some real world reviews first

    It sounds great especially through a 2x10 cab

    I played it at a local music store and I really liked the sound of it. To my ears it sounded a lot like the Champ 600, the speaker and the overdrive were very usable, I think I might get if actually. Really big sound from the Celestion speaker sounded like a "10 in the room. The tone control and higher and lower input were very usable too. Really good amp and the finish of it looked nice and durable. I hope it helps.

    Got one from Amazon for $139.53 shipped here. Seems like a great little amp for practice and bedroom. Super easy to throw in the car and take out to a friend's, though it probably won't be loud enough for playing with a drummer. Works well as a head with my 112 Peavey Bravo's speaker. It also seems to like my Soul food, Andoer Myomorpha (Rat clone?), and Donner Yellow fall delay. If it holds up, I'll be very happy with the purchase.
