"Small Size - Big Sound" does exactly what it says on the box!
Jon100p 13.12.2020
Basic amp, lovely tone, easy to use - perfect for me.
Picked up my bass again after over 40 years! Bought this to use with my old 15" WEM cab rather than use my old valve amp (which is huge and very heavy) or by a new combo.
It is a joy to use, simple but very effective. The EQ controls are particularly nice - linear effect and the cover wide +/- range.
The sound is good at low volume (unlike my valve amp) and although I've not had chance to try it at very high volume with the current restrictions, it does appear to have potential to be quite loud.
My p-ups are passive and I like having the "gain" control rather than two inputs.
Headphone socket is good for late night practice.
Any cons? - none for me yet, but it is just a basic amp so I rated it "okay" for features.
Updated after 9 months use:
I have now joined a band and used the gnome for practices and one small gig. I have had several complements about the sound of this amp, one from an experienced guitar teacher who came up to ask what amp I was using and noted it down. We play mainly 60’s covers (with drums, guitar and keys, only vocals through a PA) and it is loud enough for us when used with a 4ohm speaker load that is fairly efficient (2x8; one 15” and one 12”). I find it struggles against the drums with a single 8ohm speaker, but for the size and cost, I think the Gnome is very good.

A little beast.
Aloo Gobi 09.03.2021
I recently have gone from being neighbourless to having neighbours at either side of me, so not being able to play at night when I finish work late was going to become an issue very quickly if I didn't try and solve the issue.

This is a perfect little headphone amp, as well as when it's running through a cab. I will admit though, it's being used far more for headphone playing that anything loud and the tone from it is unbelievable. If anyone else finds themselves in the same situation as me where you're playing through headphones, but don't want to suffer the lack of quality in tone... This is for you.

It is simple, nice sounding, cheap head. I use parametric mid pedal before head and I am very happy. Cant beat it for the money.
