Big Bang for your Buck

Graham3281, 08.06.2018
Summary : A great range of easy to dial in musical, clean bass tones. A powerful and lightweight little marvel. Unbeatable value at current price of ¤499.

In over 40 years playing this is the only amp I have ever bought without trying or hearing firsthand! I was not disappointed the Bass Block is a little marvel and unbeatable value. I did seek advice from trusted sources on Basschat forum and saw YouTube clips. This also comes from Patrick Quilter of QSC power amps fame so that gave me confidence.

I have now used in four venues and a couple of rehearsals and I am very pleased with results. I bought this on a whim as a back-up amp, but it is way too good for the subs bench
and I use it as my main amp regularly. I use this with my Barefaced Super12T (2x12) and I am delighted with my onstage sound. There is a good quality DI out (pre EQ only) which works very well. The sound of my bass (usually Fender Jazz or MusicMan comes through clear and uncoloured.

I was a little apprehensive about lack of traditional EQ bass, middle and treble etc but the simplicity and effectiveness of the two tone shaping controls is excellent. I play a wide range of music, including classic rock pop, soul, funk. It's very easy to get everything I will ever use or need from Motown to snappy funk tones. This amp can be driven but is primarily designed for clean tones, those looking for distortion or highly overdrive metal tones might use a pedal, or look towards GK or Darkglass etc. It does not produce sizzling sparkly highs, but who needs em?
Cons? Nothing major. Mute switch is not totally silent in operation. There is no ground lift switch on D.I. out, but this has not been any problem. The amp is fan cooled, but fairly quiet and imperceptible when playing. In all nothing to deter me from buying again.

Excellent service from Thomann as always, very quick to respond to queries. Thank you

Massive clean power

dhbass, 29.07.2018
Very impressive sound. I play pop, soul and funk with J-/P-basses. My P-bass never sounded so thunderous! Very easy to dial in a perfect clean sound. I also use it with a tube booster for my EUB for more tube growl.

Very versatile. You can bypass the pre amp and use it as power amp with master control. The bag is useless, it fits the amp and there's room for one cable at the most. So still another bag needed for your other cables, tuner, clean shirt etc.

Soundwise this is the best amp so far. I played Markbass, Epifani, TC Electronics, Tecamp, Aguilar TH, Eden, SWR.
