Here's what YouTube guitar teacher JustinGuitar says about EastCoast Guitars
"Having played a lot of budget instruments in recent months, I can confidently say that the EastCoast guitars are by far the best bang for buck I've tried. They all had a "low action" (which means the strings are easier to press down) which is perfect for beginners and means less finger pain and a lot more fun!"
The EastCoast G10R is a brilliant amp for learning the guitar on thanks to it's small size, great tones and unlike most other practice amps around the same price, the built-in Reverb. It's only 10w which means it isn't loud enough to disturb the neighbours but has got a headphone output if you want to keep the noise down while learning.
The best thing about this EastCoast amp is that it's so easy to use. When learning to play the guitar, the last thing you want to do is fiddle about with tricky menus and LCD screens when you could be spending the time learning to play. You can just plug-in and play with this amp as it's really easy to dial in a great guitar tone.
When you want to get your sound rocking for blues, rock, metal and other genres that use distortion, you can simply turn up the 'Gain' knob. The distortion goes from mild to heavy as you turn it up.
It has also got a boost switch which will crank the volume slightly if you're jamming with a friend and want to be a little bit louder for your guitar solo or standout moment.
Why is Reverb on an amp Important?
Reverb is the sound of a sound bouncing off of a wall. Not quite an echo as that implies there's a long delay but more, the sound of a room. Whilst this can be confusing to understand, you just need to know that having reverb on the amp 'warms up' the tone. It makes practising and playing much more pleasing on the ear and will inspire you to keep playing..
