First Act - Products :: Product Details

This is, I kid you not, the amplifier heard on "Oh Jessica" and "Kissed Your Ruby Lips'.

FirstAct is a brand of inexpensive musical instruments typically sold at toy stores and Wal-Marts, and marketed towards children and other people who are just dabbling in music.

This little amplifier is louder than it looks. A lot louder.

It's also very crunchy; in spite of what the manufacturer says about "clean to distorted sounds", it's difficult to get a really clean sound out of it. It wants to be distorted, that's all there is to it.

Of course, I'm the sort of person who doesn't consider either of those to be a big disadvantage.

Finally, it has a friggin' cool blue LED.
