I bought this head because I am playing bass guitar with a rock band instead of my usual double bass (for which I have been using a Hartke Kickback up to now). It's a good, solidly-built amplifier in a metal chassis, it comes with ears to mount it in a 19" rack, and it really is 500 watts of usable power.

Into a 1x10" 8? cabinet, it delivers a controlled volume, which you can shape with the graphic EQ for your desired sound, but if you need a bit more 'kick', the low contour setting is a quick and easy way to dial in a bit more bottom end.

Into a 4x10" 4? cabinet, however, it delivers an amazing kick right from the outset. The built in compression helps to keep the volume under control, as this easily delivers ear-damaging levels of sound. At higher gain, I find that adjusting the balance between tube- and solid state preamps shapes the sound noticably better than just EQ alone.

The only downsides of it are that the controls are not protected in any way from damage in transit or handling: the control panel is not recessed in any way, and the controls are hanging out front, just asking to get knocked off or damaged. Either mount the amp in a rack, or get a flight case (and remember to use it!). The other downside is that the speaker outputs are 6.3mm jack sockets and not Speakon connectors.

Still, I am very happy with this head, it has all the power I will ever need, but it also produces a fine warm tone.

I bought this product for my band's rehearsal studio and using it for live gigs and I believe it s the best choice i have ever made in music gear.
I recommend this product to every bass player or business that needs to know he will buy something that worth.
It has an extremely clear sound and translates all frequencies the best possible.
