Big Bang for your Buck

Graham3281, 08.06.2018
Summary : A great range of easy to dial in musical, clean bass tones. A powerful and lightweight little marvel. Unbeatable value at current price of ¤499.

In over 40 years playing this is the only amp I have ever bought without trying or hearing firsthand! I was not disappointed the Bass Block is a little marvel and unbeatable value. I did seek advice from trusted sources on Basschat forum and saw YouTube clips. This also comes from Patrick Quilter of QSC power amps fame so that gave me confidence.

I have now used in four venues and a couple of rehearsals and I am very pleased with results. I bought this on a whim as a back-up amp, but it is way too good for the subs bench
and I use it as my main amp regularly. I use this with my Barefaced Super12T (2x12) and I am delighted with my onstage sound. There is a good quality DI out (pre EQ only) which works very well. The sound of my bass (usually Fender Jazz or MusicMan comes through clear and uncoloured.

I was a little apprehensive about lack of traditional EQ bass, middle and treble etc but the simplicity and effectiveness of the two tone shaping controls is excellent. I play a wide range of music, including classic rock pop, soul, funk. It's very easy to get everything I will ever use or need from Motown to snappy funk tones. This amp can be driven but is primarily designed for clean tones, those looking for distortion or highly overdrive metal tones might use a pedal, or look towards GK or Darkglass etc. It does not produce sizzling sparkly highs, but who needs em?
Cons? Nothing major. Mute switch is not totally silent in operation. There is no ground lift switch on D.I. out, but this has not been any problem. The amp is fan cooled, but fairly quiet and imperceptible when playing. In all nothing to deter me from buying again.

Excellent service from Thomann as always, very quick to respond to queries. Thank you

This is it!
I still cannot describe the sound but I've had Ampeg, Aguilar and GK and all failed to please me.

I'm pleased now.

Will give more details after playing some more. Just received it.
--------------------------------------- EDIT-------------------------------------------
After playing it through different venues and configurations I cannot express the love I have for this amp. I have it paired with Barefaced BB2 and/or a SM, and with both it works wonderfully. The best compliments I had regarding my sound were with this amp.
Tone wise it sounds like a vintage amp ( I've never had a valve bass amp), with GAIN between 7 & 8 you get this gentle unnoticed distortion that emphasizes the sound. Power wise it is like a bottomless well, I've had open gigs for +200 people without any P.A support using both cabs (4ohms). The bass spread so well through the square park ( audience ) and even on stage with all the other instruments.

Still haven't found any defect with it, still not looking for any other hardware, I'm done!
