    i've heard great comments about those amps, but never had one..
    They have also an external speaker output, isn't it?
    On Guitar World some years ago there was a review about those amps.. i'll try to find it!

    I got one of the small purple ones-Outstanding buy for the amount of money you pay for it. Crank the volume on your guitar to 10 and you get a nice fuzzy distortion. It doen't seem to handle the low end well- for instance, playing and open E chord will sound a little muddy. I like it best with the guitar volume at around 4 or 5 for a clean sound. They're quite loud for such a small thing. Haven't tried outputting it into anything though. In terms of price a value, definitely a good deal.

    Smokey amps are cool, but the real surprise is when you plug it into a 4x12 cab. They sound great!! Check it out.

    I have no idea what the hell I just got off of eBay, but I figure if all of you guys like this little thing, so should I.

    I gave into the peer pressure and got one of those Smokey's for $18.99.

    How big is it? How long does the 9V battery last? Now many knobs, if any?

    I didn't think I was going to win.....then came the email.

    I'll give it a shot and let you guys know what I think

    No knobs Jimmy, you control the volume on your guitar.
    I've used it about 5 hours and the battery is still kickin'.

    Jape, I can't beleive what balls that thing has when you plug it in to a stack, you were right on the money.

    Jimmy. . .don't freak out when you try the smokey. They don't sound very good at all by themselves, but wait til you plug it into a 4x12 or any other cabinet. Whoa! Very cool indeed!

    NO KNOBS!!!!!

    Oh well. The fact that the 5150 II has more knobs then my 5150 really fires me up! The more knobs the better!!!!!! LOL

    I've got a Carvin 2X12 cabinet that I'll hook it up to. I'm just looking for something very small to practice with. This should work out great.
