This is a great practice amp for your home. A foot wide and less than 3ft high it takes up little space and looks great. Has the basic tone controls and sounds ok as is. BUT I am never happy with things out of the box. The head has an effects loop and a Boss GEB 7 band equalizer was added. This really lit the fuse to this amp! Highly recommend this addition. True the cooling fan gets noisy, but you should be playing loud enough to drown out the sound. Think you would get laughed out the bar if you gigged with it, lol. I love it!

Mark Twain once said "It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog." The Ampeg Micro VR is a testament to the truth of that statement. I'm a performing musician, and I've used this amp in punk, funk & country bands to great effect. It's not a piece of gear meant to be everything to everyone, so it might not meet your needs if you want ultra deep lows for dub or super articulate highs for jazz fusion, but it's well-rounded tone with prominent mids and and meaty growl when you crank the gain are really a treat for the ears. It's also very durable. I'm rather reckless with my gear and both the head and cabinet have survived several falls and a lot of rough handling. The only complaint I have is with the construction; the jacks are made of plastic and I've lost one of the nuts somewhere out on the road. The Micro VR is great for recording, rehearsing and playing shows in mid sized (approx. 200 capacity) venues when using the head's direct output. Honestly though, you should have the soundguy mic the cab if you're going to gig with it because the speakers sound so good.
