The Chord CG series of guitar amplifiers are a good student or beginner choice that combine robust build quality, clean sound and value for money.
The Amp has a classic, familiar design and is vinyl covered with metal corner protectors and a mesh, basket-weave style front grille cloth. On the top is a strong handle attached to the amp with metal clasps.
The unit has a single guitar input for a standard 6.3mm jack to jack and a single headphone output, again for a standard 6.3mm size jack as well as switchable clean and drive channels. The amp also has standard bass, middle and treble controls.
This model only weighs 4kg so is easy to carry around and its 10W output is more than enough for practice purposes whilst also producing a clean enough sound for band practice.
