Good, light and small
r.r , 22.02.2019
I've used this amp for 3,5 years now and I'm still amazed about the sound and the possibilities what it has. I play Fender J-Bass and Sandberg California fretless, with Markbass 2x10 cabinet. I perform Jazz, folk, pop, fusion, big hall and stadium gigs and small cafe gigs.

Pros:
So much choice of sound! From high end slap sound to DnB low end bass sound... all-around amp!
The sound is well balanced and I've been using this amp also in studios, just because it's great for that as well.
I've had couple of accidents lately with it and it has fell on the sides while touring. It's strong and it still works well.
Special knob for the headphone volume, which is good for practising.
It performs well in low volume and high volume, almost no noise and it's overall really quiet.

Cons:
After couple of months of having it the AUX input stopped working properly and then also the headphone jack, so it's not the practice amp anymore sadly.
There's no mute function on the amp, what could be really useful.
I've tried to play double bass through it, but after using AER and other good double bass amps, it doesn't make sense anymore.

In the end, in that price range it's one good amp!

Rich and warm sound
Jimbocrimbo, 29.05.2017
Love this amp, makes me sound like a pro! Playing it through two Eden 1 x 10s. Tons of headroom and adjustment; quiet and discreet. It really is a little beast. Italian made so looks the part, just like their cars - but let's hope it's more reliable!
