Overall: Been playing this head for 6 months with a Fender Pro 810 and just used it in the studio. No need for any outside gain assistance as the tubed preamp has more than enough balls. And the 500 watts is more power than needed! The awesome thing about this head (besides the size), is that it is a solid state amp with a tube pre amp. So the volume doesn't have to be way too hi just to get some breakup in the tubes. When packing your bands gear up, the size of this quickly becomes an aw factor! If you're looking for an awesome overdriven bass amp, this is it!

Overall: Got the head this week and plugged it in to my peavey headliner 4x10 cab and was blown away by the tone. I use Musicman, G&L, Ibanez BTB 555, and a Copely 5 fretless and this head delivers. I have only had to turn it up to 3 on both gains and at the 2 o'clock position on the eq settings. my basses do the rest. WOW this head is a beast and a tone machine. I love the ohm switch on the back. It allows me to run 500 watts at either 8 ohm or 4 ohm. WOW again! This is as good a head as eden as far as sound. If you register the product online you get an extra year of warranty btw so be sure to take the time to do that. Time will tell how durable it is but I have seen Orange amps around for all of my 30 year career. Some from the 70's! If you like tube sound in a hybrid package this is your poison. Well worth the money!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
