As I expected

Benjamin I., 16.03.2015
No surprise, as I listened to about 40 amps before choosing this one. Thomann's own standard sound bytes, and countless YouTube videos. I tested all the knobs, they work smoothly and without crackling noises. The two AUX inputs (1/4" and 1/8") work, their volume control works, too. Ditto the headphones outlet.

The -15dB switch is convenient when you don't want to disturb the neighbors, or when someone suddenly talks to you. The main input locks the jack firmly, the on/off switch is strong and snaps positively on both sides. The ON diode shines super bright, no way you won't notice it in the daytime, plus it has a nice bluish/white light.

Now the main features: the BASS-MID-TREBLE pots are silent and accurate: a half-notch move makes a noticeable change in tone. It was easy to have a slight boost without swelling the sound: I simply set them too high, one by one, and then decreased them till the swelling stopped. (my guitar is a Jazz clone).

I tried plugging a six-string into this bass amp and liked the sound a lot, even the six-string's higher notes were rendered well, really not that differently than a regular six-string amp. I might actually play them in the Ampeg sometimes when I don't need distortion, or to add low-end thump to the tone.

The volume pot is progressive enough that you can play at very low volume, precisely the volume you need, which changes often when you play at home depending on what is happening around. Its body is well finished with rough but half-shiny black skin, corner protections are neatly shaped, perfectly mated to the body.

When I buy a new apparatus I check for overtightned or undertightened screws but they were all right, this gives me confidence the inside was also assembled carefully. It's not heavy, only 10.7 kilos, not 12.7 as the site says, and handles easily. The 60° stand is cool for shooting sound at yourself instead of the ground, and the feet are rubber, not metal as in my Peavey, which can scratch a table or the ground.

The body's build is tight, and the removable grille is a hard fiber like nylon, seems a cat wouldn't scratch it easily. I regret a bit it has no overdrive, but the 10"/40w Ampeg that has the overdrive is too big/heavy/expensive/powerful for me.

As for sound quality it's a bit subjective but other compact amps color the tone with the silicon in the circuit whereas this one is more transparent. Punchy in the very low notes, more than the other small amps I listened to. Comparison is easy for anyone with a computer anyway, just use good headphones or larger external loudspeakers.

Great sounding amp

trelousis, 15.09.2018
Gets plenty loud, has a button for -15db, great for active basses and most importantly, you can get great sounds out of this little amp!
EQ is very responsive, I didn't expect to be able to get such a nice tone from such a small practice amp. This with a Squier Jazz Bass VM is the sweet spot I believe.
