Definitely intended to be just a practice amp. The controls are basic, volume and 3-band eq (bass, mid, treble). However, it produces a recordable tone at lower volumes when micced up. For someone who is doing any bedroom recording, like myself, it does the job.
Bass-ic bass amp (geddit?) that is loud enough for a small jam with friends. Basic controls, Bass, Mid, Treble. Sounds fine. Not too heavy, not too light. Fairly portable. Has a input for aux and headphones which helps a lot during practice. Great amp for beginner bassists.
