"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.

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.

Carrément pas mal
Taxe, 03.03.2021
Vraiment petit et léger, ranger sur la table avec le D.I son vraiment bon pas de souffle et pourtant je monte le gain au 3/4 tout comme le volume. Brancher en Speak le son est énorme et bien retransmit. L'égaliseur est efficace on sens le changement de son dès qu'on les touche. Utiliser avec une basse fretless ( fait par un Luthier )médium et tremble au 3/4 potard de la basse neutre j'arrive à faire des slaps qui sonne pas mal du tout.
je pense qu'en répét il passe sens souci ( brancher toujours direct sur la sono) à voir maintenant en concert. ( Dès qu'on pourra rejouer)

kleiner Übungszwerg fürs Wohnzimmer
Andi123, 18.05.2021
Habe mir den Gnome in erster Linie fürs Üben zu Hause zugelegt und dort hängt er jetzt an einer 8-Ohm-Box:
Der kleine Amp schaut und wirkt sehr robust und wertig, und er bringt trotz der kleinen Größe das notwendige Gewicht mit, um sicher und stabil auf der Box zu stehen. Die Regler lassen sich sanft, aber nicht zu leicht drehen. Es klappert nix, es wackelt nix, alle Buchsen sitzt fest. Alles so wie es sein soll!

Neben dem Gain-Regler sitzt eine helle LED: die leuchtet grün bei ordentlich Signal und wird rot, sobald der Eingangslimiter (dann wirds aber auch hörbar und es zerrt) eingreift. Einfacher geht es nicht. Daneben dann EQ und Master, und ein Kopfhörerausgang.
Auf der Rückseite sitzt ein DI mit GND-Lift, Klinkenbuchse für den Lautsprecher (kein Speakon), sowie der Ein/Ausknopf.
Da in meinem Musikraum eine zusätzliche große Musikanlage steht, vermisse ich einen zusätzlichen Aux-Anschluss am Amps nicht. Wenn jemand aber nur über den Amp über möchte (z.B. über den Kopfhörer), der wird den "fehlenden" Aux-weg aber sicherlich vermissen ...

Sound: Flat eingestellt erzeugt der Gnome einen klaren transparenten Sound, ohne irgendwelche Eigen-Einfärbungen. Auch wenn man das DI-Signal in einer DAW mit dem direkten Basssignal vergleicht, hört man keinen nennenswerten Unterschied. Jedoch war ein kleines Rauschen über den DI hörbar. Sowohl mein aktiver als auch mein passiver Bass lassen sich problemlos einpegeln. Der DI wird nach dem EQ, aber vor dem Masterregler abgegriffen, so sollte sich also auch beim Liveeinsatz ein "konstantes" Signal für die PA abgreifen lassen, und zumindest die Gesamtlautstärke kann man trotzdem noch separat für den eigenen Monitor regeln.
Der Masterregler regelt leider etwas "empfindlich" - es wird auf sehr wenig Regelweg plötzlich laut, und dann hat man den Eindruck dass danach nicht mehr viel passiert. Das ist das einzige Manko, das kenne ich so von meinen anderen Amps nicht, die lassen sich da alle viel schöner Einregeln.
Zum Üben in den eigenen vier Wänden reicht die Lautstärke locker aus. Coronabedingt gibts aktuell keine Chance, das Teil im Proberaum oder auf der Bühne zu testen. Für den Proberaum dürfte die Lautstärke aber reichen. Für ne größere Bühne nehm ich meinen anderen großen Amp als Backup beim Ersten mal aber sicherlich mit.

Zum Lüfter: der läuft nach wenigen Minuten los. Und ja, man hört ihn wenn man nicht spielt. Sobald man aber zupft, oder Übungsmusik dazuläuft, hört man ihn nicht mehr.

Für den Preis und für meinen Zweck ein Klasse teil. Wer also einfach einen kleinen klar-klingenden Übe-Amp sucht macht mit dem kleinen Gnome sicherlich nichts falsch.
