You won’t be rattling the windows with this, but you won’t be getting angry calls from the neighbors either. It also has a headphone jack, so you can practice in silence, for late night or early morning sessions.
The Rogue G10 also has a Power boost select button, for a little extra oomph, when desired.
The Rogue G-10 is a great starter amp and will continue to serve as a practice tool for those that graduate to a larger amp.

What’s not included
About the only things not included in this starter pack are instructional books and dvds to learn to play guitar, and a guitar case. But the dvds and books are best purchased separately That way they will more closely match reading level (child vs. adult for instance) and musical interest (blues, rock, metal…).
And a case isn’t needed for a guitar that’s used primarily at home for practice. The gig bag is enough protection for travel to and from a friend’s house.
