Great & affordable Bass amp head

29.04.2015
I bought this with the Kustom DE410H as I needed a rig I would be able to lug up and down stairs on a weekly basis.

Handling: This head is fairly heavy and is weighted at one end which can be a bit of a pain. Despite this it's still suitable for the gigging bassist who needs to lug their gear around frequently.

Features: Fairly simple amp, two inputs (active and passive) gain, 3 band EQ (bass, mids, treble) and master volume knob DI out (with options for pre/post EQ and cab simulation) and effects loop.
The room EQ is a nice feature which is very usable (cut the frequencies which can cause boominess or cut the icy picky top end)
Head features a 12ax7 preamp tube, not sure how much effect this has on the tone though, but it lights up which is nice.

Sound: played through a jazz bass and paired with the matching DE410 this amp sounds great. punchy and defined even at high volume.
3 band EQ doesn't have a radical effect on your tone and is quite subtle.
As previously mentioned the room EQ is a great feature and allows me to remove the boom i'd otherwise have to suffer from playing in a large open room with a wooden stage. Using the tube gain knob you can get a variety of tones. setting it to the mid point will give you a nice clean tone suitable for finger style playing. whereas turning it up past this begins to introduce some overdrive style grit and suits pick playing or heavier finger styles.
DI out is usable and the cab emulation and pre/post EQ are a nice touch, though I've always preferred to mic up when required.

Quality: seems to be very well made, corners are protected and not had any issues as of yet, no scratchy pots or intermittent issues to speak of

Overall: a great head at a great price. Simplicity of it may not be for everyone, but for the gigging bassist who needs something loud, portable and usable it's definetely worth considering.

Great vintage sound

04.03.2014
This amp is sort of a one trick pony. But it is very good at what it does. If you want a vintage tube sound with or without distortion for a low price this is the one to get. I play it together with a matching DE410 cab and my band is really happy with the sound it produces.

Some minor negative points is that it has a tendency to fart out if you really dig in and play hard and that the tone controlls really don't do much. They are more like on/off buttons. Before 12 o clock: nothing, past 12 o clock: all of it.

The room EQ however is great for cutting the low end frequencies that tend to rattle the stage and/or drown out your band mates.

Exterior build quality seems really nice. I have my doubts about the durability of the electronics but thats to be expected at this price point.

You will have no problem being heard with this amp. It can be as loud as you'll ever need.
