I have owned heads, cabinets, and combos over the years from Ampeg, Carvin, Eden, Fender, GK, Hartke, Peavey, SWR, and more. This amp is truly impressive. Forget the fact that it is incredibly tiny for a moment, and what you have is a powerful sounding amp with simple controls and the basic features a player needs. (I put this through the paces today with a Fender Precision with Flats, an Ibanez 6-string, and a Music Man Stingray. I am playing it through a Fender Rumble 15 cabinet and it sounds great!) The EQ is simple but can give you cutting mids with solid lows or a nice scooped slap tone. The headphone out lets you use it as a handy practice tool. There is no fan noise whatsoever, and my bass sounds solid and strong through it. I appreciate the clip light indicator because it lets you set the gain right where it should be (just under clipping). My Ampeg PF-350 had that too, but compared to this, the Ampeg sounded a bit thin. This is the ballsiest Class D amp I've heard. So, in summary this amp is a contender just on sound and features. (I don't care about effects loops or Speakon vs 1/4 inch speaker outs). NOW, add to this that it is barely bigger than my hand and I find myself very impressed. Nice job, Trace Elliot!
