Very happy indeed!
Andy23 10.03.2022
My initial test with new gear is to check how it sounds straight out the box. So, I'll start with contents: out the box you get, the amp, power supply, footswitch, instrument and speaker lead - all good for a £122. Next up, plug in to see how it sounds. I'm pairing it with a TC BC208 cab and using my 1999 EBMM stingray. Low, Mid & Hi all set to far left position (off or low) comp switch at normal and control at 9am, gain at 8am and volume at 10am - morning times for illustration purposes and context. Plugged in the bass for instant nice tone and volume. Moving the EQ section to midday, adjusting the volume to full and working the gain up from zero, is astonishing! The footswitch appears to activate the compressor of which, is not too bad given the price of the amp. It is a single valve (AX7) 50w at 4 ohms little head that I'm running 20w at 8 ohms through my BC208 - it is loud at 20w. Will test more in the coming days but I am very impressed for more or less out the box tone & volume.

Fabulous little amp with great sound
Stub Mandrel 26.11.2022
This amp is only 50W into 4 ohms or half that into 8 ohms. It sounds incredible through my PJB C4 (8 ohm), but not massively loud. Great for home practice or a quiet jam. Still to try it through my GR bass AT212 but I know it will sound amazing and vastly louder. The simple compression works well and the overdriven sound is like an SVT. Two minor grumbles, no balanced di although you can use fx out which makes it giggable for quiter bands with a pa. Then the external psun which is clumsy and comes with a euro type plug.

All in a though it looks and sounds great.

Best portable practice amp I could imagine
radrow 01.02.2024
It's very compact, yet powerful enough to fuel a basic practice setup. Thanks to its tube preamp, the sound is nicely crispy and responds very well to playing dynamics.

I used it formerly in travel, where its tiny size really mattered. It drived 200Ohm heaphones perfectly fine. It has built-in compressor and has good gain control plus 3-band eq, so I didn't even need any other boxes to be satisfied with the sound (definitely for practice purposes). Why Bluetooth input rocks, I shouldn't describe - it's just incomparably more comfortable over being tied with a cable (and not being able to charge with modern jackless phones).

I didn't use its main output frankly speaking, but in my home setup I used it as a preamp to Orange crush 100 by binding its effect send to combo's return. I swear, it sounds so much better than Orange's preamp that I abandoned my plans on replacing the combo with a bare cab.

Regarding build quality, it feels sturdy and I am not afraid for it.

Pros:
- Small, great for travel and home practice
- FX loop
- Bluetooth input
- Build quality
- Sound (for the price it's outstanding imo)
- Decent "out of the box" compressor
- Functional equalizer

Cons:
- The included jack cable stinks

L'investissement sans risques
Pierre5096 28.06.2022
Venant tout juste de recevoir ce micro cube je vous fais part à chaud des mes impression, je vous passe les détail de l'emballage et du transport sans faille !! Le produit se présente sous forme d'un format réduit avec une petite poignée de transport le tout de bonne facture et aux finitions soignées. Premier point positif. Côté utilisation première observation ça "poc" quand on met sous tension ... les réglages sont très simple et on affine très rapidement le réglage optimal pour ses oreilles et ce son est plutôt assez rond et chaud et branché sur un 4*10 ampeg en 4 ohms le rendu est très sympathique... Pour le prix cela est vraiment un bon produit surtout pour celui qui veut travailler avec le bluetooth sans avoir des câbles qui trainent partout. Les deux point qui me paraissent négatifs c'est que la puissance est trop faible pour jouer en live avec une batterie et il manque une sortie DI justement pour compenser le premier point.
Je recommande vivement ce produit
