"Work horse of an amp"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Bought this head new from zZounds about a year and a half ago, and its been nothing but reliable and dependable, and plenty loud. the sound quality is pretty good too for the price point. I tend to run a bass preamp/DI in the front with the gain knob around 3 or 4 on the amp, so i can blend in a nice clean sound with just a touch of bite blended in on top. Even without a preamp in front, you get a bright, contour, and crunch switch, a compressor, and a 7 band EQ, your tone shaping possibilities are endless. I will say though, im not a huge fan of the on board compressor, it seems to start to really squish the sound and make it sound eh on anything above 5. that may not be a problem for you, but the style i play usually requires the bass to be pretty compressed. My only real complaint is that i wish there were 2 speakon outputs on the back instead of just the one. i run 2 peavey headliner 4x10s with this head, and a few times have lost sound completely because the 1/4" input in the cab had disconnected itself because it couldn't handle the power. A 1/4" to speakon cable fixed the problem, but it wouldn't be a bad option to have for the sake of consistency. Overall its not a huge deal, but a second speakon jack at least on the cab would be nice.Overall if your a gigging or touring musician looking for something dependable, good sounding, and relatively affordable, i would definitely recommend this amp. its not on the same level as an Ampeg SVT, Fender read more Bassman, or Darkglass Microtubes,but it can get you through any gig with a little tweaking and without dropping $1k + on an amp.
