    "Awesome! It’s not an amp, so be realistic...If you are playing guitar and don’t have an amp or want to keep quiet, this thing is awesome. ...After getting sick and tired of tripping over the amp cord, getting it wrapped around my arms/legs/torso, sitting on it, having it jerked out of the bass after being entangled in a puppy fight, I decided to give this gadget a try.
