"Great amp !"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I made the decision to downsize the rig that I was hauling around. This combo amp is everything that I've been looking for. Awesome features, tone and an extremely small foot print on stage ! I coupled it with the PJB C4 cabinet and there will never be a need for me to use a "big" rig again !

I play both Electric and Upright basses and this amp performs like a champ with both. Great tone and plenty of clear sound.

"Beatiful Beautiful Beautiful"

I have to echo a comment I saw in a review about this amp. It sounds like your bass. A broom stick with rubber bands stapled to it would sound good coming through an Ampeg SVT-CL Head with an 8x10 cabinet, but it would sound like the setup. I'm using an Ibanez SRFF806. With the bass and the amp set flat it's beautiful. Turn up the bass's and or amp's bass eq, or set it on the floor (I always use a tilt back guitar stand) and it rumbles, but still sounds like your bass. Love the sound. Not sure if it's fitting for rock music though. I've had a Roland 2x10 combo amp, and a TC Electronic RH450 and 2x10 cab setup that I've like as well, but not quite as much. It's deceptively heavy, but compact. I could imagine the first time taking it to a gig getting comments like, "What happened? Your mommy wouldn't let you bring your big boy amp?" that is until you turned it on. Beautiful. Just beautiful.
Musical Background:
I'm mainly a keyboard player. This is the first bass setup I've had in about 6 years.
Musical Style:
Any style I can have fun with, which is any.

Work fine but always got very hot. Same as another review I read , I to called rep and they were not concerned. Plugged in on night and no sound on a gig. Pairs shipping to PJS and when the amp returned it worked for one gig. Called and wanted replacement with new unit, will let you know how it turns out.

"Not sure"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Used this with the C4 cab and noticed the head getting really hot. Called rep and did not get a solid answer. Bass knob seems not to add much to the overall sound. Thinking of trading both suitcase and c4 for something else.
