Nice piece of kit when used properly

Happy Jack, 05.10.2015
Superb design & build, with deliberately minimal functionality for better focus. Treated purely and simply as a headphone amplifier, this is a nice enough box and it does the job without much of a WOW factor. Headroom is fairly limited but there's less risk of doing permanent damage to your ears.

Having both a Gain and a Volume control is fascinating, and I often fiddle with the settings when changing from one band to another. To use this properly, though, is to use it as a practice tool for playing along (on bass, usually) silently with your favourite music.

That brings into play the very simple EQ provided for your instrument input, which in turn reminds you that the amp comes with a short microjack --> 1/4" input cable. If you just want to listen to music and not plug a bass in, then simply connect your mp3 source to the instrument input. You now have both Gain & Volume as before, but also full EQ on the music. Of course, that also gives you more headroom ...

One other nice touch is that there is a permanent indicator for the built-in rechargeable battery, making irritating power outages far less likely.

For something that will fit very comfortably in any jacket pocket, this is definitely a nice thing to have.

Great sound in such a small unit

31.03.2016
Since I bought this unit I've been using it both as an headphone amplifier and as an actual pre-amplifier, live and for small home-made recordings. The sound is just great! The eq works in a 'pure' way, giving you the frequencies that you need, with coloring your sound. I've been using it before my pedal chain to send a stronger signal to the effects. The size of it makes it the perfect unit to bring on tour.
If only it had a balanced output I'd have solved so many problems! But I guess that size and price would have been different then. It's a pricy unit, but I'm using it so much, I'm glad I chose to buy it!
