Small but Powerful!

mcn, 21.01.2015
Excellent little combo,little in size but not volume! sound quality excellent... handles low B on a 5 string bass!... well made and tough case that protects controls and sockets etc.
Highly recommended for practice and smallish gigs.... if larger venues, there is DI out ....

Very small, but also very fine!

KlausB., 06.01.2010
I've seen the Briefcase Combo for the first time a few years ago at the Musikmesse in Frankfurt, and I've already noticed that the cute thing seemed to be able to get through the omnipresent sound effects, but not with brachial power, but with Precise sound.

Since then the Briefcase is my constant companion, especially with the double bass. Even in situations where "no reinforcement!" , I build the thing for the first time, and nobody has ever complained. On the contrary, even the soft tones of the double bass can be quite precise and detailed, but with a little more laustry.

There is also space in the smallest orchestral pit, and I have finally no more problems to hear myself.

Contrary to the recommendation of the manufacturer, I do not place the amplifier on the ground (which would bring more bass), but on a tiltable combostativ at hip height right next to me. Especially for contrabassists the defninitiv is worth a try.

On the other hand, the physical limitations of the combos become clearer with the electric bass. Since you have to go, particularly with the deep B, a little prudent to the point, so as not to overwhelm the amp. For the nursed sample it is enough, however, and the volume is definitely not a proper attitude for the lettercase, you have to know.

The sound control is extremely effective, the processing is beyond any doubt. For the small size the lettercase even has a quite trustworthy weight, meaning the thing is significantly heavier than it looks.

Akkubetrieb would be possible, but I have not yet tried.

=================
Update (Autumn 2012):
=================
In the meantime the battery is in it, and the first non-wired inserts have run. Conclusion: If the amp with lead battery in it was not so stiff (for this size!), I would only play without power cable. In mobile use, for example, on the ship ("Can not you even play a few numbers on the top deck?") I do not have to look for the can, but take the thing with and go. The same is true for the fast dietary day, where otherwise you could have a double bass or a tuba, because you did not want to spend any time on the spot with the search for a socket.

But also for "more serious" applications the built-in UPS proves itself: One has no more electrical connection to possibly dimmergestrikten current lines.
