Flawless practice amp
subdude, 30.08.2019
The bass arrived quickly as always, the packaging was insane though, there was room for 4 amps in the box it arrived in.

The amp looks and feels very good, the sturdy front grill and the inset amp offer ample protection during transport. The amp is small and light but feels solid and not flimsy with a well placed handle.
The features I was looking for all work as advertised, AUX in and headphone out do their job. The speaker does not sound amazing and anything above bedroom volume starts to fart out on the lower keys. But that was to be expected, when played on low volume the sound is acceptable and there is little in the way of hiss or hum.

The controls are OK, the bass and treble are very responsive, the semi parametric MID's are not so easy to dial in though, I find it hard to hear much of a difference but maybe that's just me.

Much to my surprise I found that the amp can also run on AA batteries, there is a hatch at the back of the cabinet where you have access to the speaker and the battery box, I nice feature that is not advertised as such.

All in all I am totally satisfied with the purchase, it's not an amazing amp but you get much more than what you pay for.

Artec b2 Opinion
Kevin615, 22.05.2013
I bought this amp with a Fleabass shortscale off thomann as a rig for introducing children in my school to playing guitar,bass and drums together. It's fine for this purpose and gives a reasonably good volume. The features look good on paper but the various preset clean and drive settings are of little use and just muddy the tone completely. I just leave it in the clean position and it is fine. Overall I would say it is good value at the price but could benefit from a large speaker out jack and a better power lead.Shipping and customer service first class as always!

Great little combo
Doug I., 01.08.2015
I bought this combo after my weekend 'field' event where I played bass outside in a forest to accompany some fiddlers and guitarists. I wanted a small combo that would run on battery and mains.

The unit arrived very quickly and was well packed in two cardboard boxes with air based packaging

This combo does both (rather well too) For the money I don't think you can better this unit. It is light in weight but gives a good bass response. I have only tried with my passive jazz bass so I wouldn't like to comment how it would respond with an active bass.

The tone controls work well but I haven't found a use for the tone shaping switch at the top of the combo. I tend to leave it on the top setting and it works fine for me.

A mighty cube
TonyM, 29.05.2013
The Artec was a really nice surprise, I'd not tried it before buying, but I'm glad it was in the package.
I've tried other much more expensive units and I don't think that they offered much better sound, although some did have more features.
I like the inbuilt amp settings which give you instant sound settings. the traditional EQ knobs are good too. I would have liked a line-out other than the headphone socket.
As a practice amp it has tons of power and plenty of volume for a studio or house.
It is housed in a sturdy cab which as yet has not developed any annoying noises, which has happened in the past to my bass cabs.
I think that in the under £150.00 range of combo amps you would be hard pushed to find anything better.
