    So, has anybody received theirs yet?? I'm looking forward to this little amp, YouTube videos are everywhere now, and this thing sounds pretty good on YouTube as compressed as that is!!

    Those that have it, what do you think?? Keeper, or off to Reverb,,

    I have only heard of it because a friend ordered one. I was under the impression they hadn't started to ship yet, but may be wrong.

    Early buyers are getting their amps already, but with all the factories being shut down in China, I'm betting they won't be shipping as many as promised on the dates they show.

    I ordered one in January but received an email Feb 4th saying delivery will be delayed from February until late March due to some part shortage that has since been resupplied. Haven't received any update since, but I have a while til the end of March.

    I sent an email to Positive Grid and they were saying my amp should arrive in July. I ordered this back in March. What is our recourse if we do not get our amps? I know they are based in the UK. If anyone has some information, that would help a lot. Positive Grid has not put out any updated communication on their website.

    My wife ordered me one in November and it arrived last week. Been messing with it a bit and am not impressed. They did pack a lot of bells and whistles into a small amp, however, the sound from the amp itself is...terrible. It seems that if you want a practice amp to use with headphones, your good. Another thing is that in the Create a Jam mode, you can only play about a minute of music and the software doesn't pick up bridges, etc. If you use a karaoke download, you get lyrics, but you need to have your chords. Also, you can't take out the guitar in the songs, so your basically playing over it. Also, the Jam music itself is very low volume. Less than impressed, but I i'll keep screwing with it.

    Mine did in fact show up yesterday, a death in the family kept me from feeling like checking it out.
    I hope to open the box today

    They do a pretty good job at what they’re supposed to do.

    How about headphone output, is guitar mono in center, which would be awful?

    Got mine last week, and it only took a week to get it. I am in awe of this thing. First day I set it up with Bluetooth for the play along feature. But today my friend came over and taught me extensive knowledge of the features. Before this I plugged into my amp without any pedals. It isn't perfect, but the play along feature is worth the price.
