Wow!!

Ray D., 20.06.2015
I bought this as a portable bass amp and was also interested in the bluetooth capability. It has proved to be a brilliant solution to meet my requirements. However, It has knocked my socks off as a acoustic guitar and electric guitar practice amp. I now find myself micing up this amp to do my home recording. Have tried the emulated line out into a tascam dp32... but wasn't happy with recording levels i could get on some of the voices... stick one or two sm57's in front... it suits me fine ....i am Well pleased.

Class miracle chest

Thorsten278, 11.01.2016
Preface; I am guitarist as well as bassist. For home to practice, I was looking for a solution which both aspects soundfully acceptable (the attempt to get a reasonable sound for my Paula by guitarsop and bassbox went wrong, circular saw ...!)

So read reviews and ordered. What can I say, the crate keeps what it promises. Great guitar sound, (especially crunch and supercrunch convinced me). The corresponding dynamics of the pickups are well implemented.

The acoustics simulations sound pleasing, but then the hardest, bass (active). Here you have to act a little carefully, if the preamp gets too much power drags it a little, otherwise great thing.
Both plucked and slung a really good result and sufficient for home at all times.

Personally, I liked the first bass voicing better than the second (but taste), really terrible I felt the envelope effect (mE totally superfluous).

Great is also the Bluetooth interface, playing easily connected with the smartphone us loose, it does not get any easier, and all without cable.

Conclusion, great box for home and on the road, amazing what comes from the 2x3 inch speakers for a sound. I can recommend this cube of good conscience. Pricey but no bargain, but very valuable and worth every penny.
