Fantastic amp, i would buy it again and again. Sounds amazing with marshall guitaar amps. Looks great and has a cool sub octavve button.
Great for any type of bass.
Amazing with jazz basses and MusicMan basses, sounds best when used for punk, rock, slap and jazz.
Hold out well at high volums although it does become a little bit distorted
Doesnt take much fiddling to get a good sound, portable, good size and suprisingly load for its size.
I looked at bassmans (eww) and SWRs and chose this because all the other ones sound too much like guitar amps. I liked this amp because it is very smooth and yet punchy at the same time. I would probably get a MAG of some sort if this was stolen. The only way this amp could be better is if it was a MAG. If you are looking for a smooth and punchy(in a deep way) amp for blues or jazz especially this is a perfect pick.

The sound quality is ausome, very smooth and mellow. I play it with a American Dlx. Jazz and it works great. This amp is best for jazz, blues, and reggae but will work for anything, except maybe metal. This amp is of great quality for only $300, I perfer it over just about anything thats not Ashdown. It can be surprisingly loud, I've played it in auditoriums and in a crouded club and easily beat out all ambient sounds.
Very easy to use, just plug in and you get a great sound, unlike SWRs which take some fiddling to get a good sound.
I've banged it around for a few months and had no problems. It came without one of the capasitors saudered right but other than that I have had no problems.
