    Sounds good. I’d probably go for something else for $600, but this is not a bad choice.

    That's a good price. I paid nearly that for my 15w...now I have to let the GAS settle.

    Just to be clear, the amp head alone is $300. No speaker/cab included at that price.

    True. The cab is a pretty good deal in that package, though.

    Is it good though? How does it sound?

    Edit: how does it compare to a Sawtooth? Those look cool.

    The video above and others on YouTube are positive. I didn't see any tests of the head alone into other cabinets, if that is what you mean.

    I have the mono price 15 and can confirm it is an excellent little amp. In particular I love the 1/15 watt attenuator button that allows me to play the amp at bedroom levels.
    If it had a line out (unpowered) I probably would have just bought two of them and left one at my church.

    As it is, the Monoprice is my office amp and I have a Fender super champ XD for my church amp.
