Nice sound, light, solid and reasonably priced.
Mwahh, 14.04.2021
I really like this amp head. After playing a super heavy Hartke combo for 20+ years, I needed something lighter, but with enough power and flexible tone controls.

The eq is nice and musical. The eq-frequencies have been well selected. The low mid control is extremely helpful for cutting some mud, if you need a hi-fi tone. Instant Marcus Miller.

The compressor is good. It takes some time and tweaking to find a suitable amount/treshold of compression, but this applies compressors in general.

I have easily found a good sound for my fretless 5-string bass as well as for my fretted 6-string with this amp, without any pedals. I also cannot imagine a situation where I would need a more powerful amp than this.

I love this little monster !
Neiler, 18.11.2020
Such a Massive sounding little amp , Really big and focused tone , the built in Thrust compressor is as nice a compressor as many compressors that would cost more than this amp ! the whole amp behaves amazingly from big warm compressed tones , to dynamic and very focused slap tones . whether used into a cab or taking the balanced out to a PA .

Great first bass amp even as a backup. No bells and whistles but I honestly think it puts many, more expensive heads to shame!! It's silent (no fan), the 4 band EQ is very good, very portable and light unit with headphones out & aux in. At this price you cannot go wrong.

A great amp
Peter FKE, 05.05.2021
I am spoilt with playing on tube amplifiers for over 30 years, but this one to my surprise sounds quite well.
