Does the job, as expected
JC_review, 11.12.2017
I use this small amp as a practice amp- I live in an apartment so I do not want to make too much noise. For a small and reasonably priced amp, it has quite a few features. I really like the compression feature as it allows you still to hear the deep tones despite its small size. It is small enough to pack in a small suitcase and does not take much storage space, which is a great advantage.

I have two minor issues with the item. One is that the knob for one of the eq controls came off soon after I bought it. It can still be put in place and does not change the function at all, but I have to be careful when adjusting it so that I do not pull it off. So far it is only one knob that has come off, but we will see if the other ones hold up. The second one is that the power adapter must be bought separately. I understand why this is done - to allow the adapter to be sold appropriately by region - but both items were not available at the same time, so I had to wait until they were before I could purchase and use them.

Good little amp.
PB2018, 18.08.2018
I've been using this amp for a day, I wanted something I could practice with and move around. This was a great choice. It sounds good considering the size and wattage. You can get some nice tones on it, a few more features than you would find on anything else of this price range. It's battery operated so you don't have to plug in(unless you buy the power supply serperately).

The amp has a bit of weight to it, which is good as it doesn't move around too easily. However the housing is a little flimsy, the plastic I can see will be easily broken no doubt. Be careful not to drop off the coffee table.

Other than the housing I can't really complain about anything else. It sounds good, it's got an overdrive channel, a clean channel and has some nice sounds. If you're you're looking for something to practice with this is perfect, it's quite small and can be stored away very easily.

The best bedroom bass amp
jv0521, 03.01.2020
I bought this amp to learn playing the bass at home.

I had great experience with the guitar version of the Fly 3, so this amp was definitely on my radar.

After reading comments on various forums I was a bit afraid that the bass wouldn't sound too good with the amp, and for this reason I contemplated purchasing the Yamaha THR10 which supposedly has a bit more punch. I ultimately ended up choosing this model (I admit that the price was an important point to consider), hoping that it would be enough for learning purposes.

Thankfully I made a great choice. The volume is definitely loud enough to fill my apartment. The sound is also pretty good, the deeper bass tones feel very smooth. I also love that it can run on batteries, so I can play wherever I feel like.

Overall I'm very happy with my purchase, I don't think anyone can go wrong with this product.
