Its better than my old mesa amps and it £400 its a mega deal these were developed for jack bruce and jaco pastorious the latter never using them but they nail an awesome sort of marshall super bass sound they are great
Favorite bass head
Reliable is the word, and add to that the sweet compression and versatile settings allowing you to reach RATM territory as much as Muse or RHCP, without breaking a sweat.
Don’t waste your money.
They sound like complete crap. The compressor (one knob) just reduces the volume a little. It has a SS and tube pre that can be blended but they don’t sound much different. I even bought a new 12AX7 tube. Only get this if it’s less than $100 and you have a sansamp or a Darkglass D.I. Because it’s gonna sound like shit.
Nice hybrid bass amp
I'm a big fan of the graphic EQ it allows you to do to dial in your tone. Cool lights on it as well. The tube and solid state pre-amp section works well, whether you blend them or isolate them.
Pros- Great hybrid amp, graphic EQ
Cons- Maybe not as powerful as other bass amps out in the marketplace these days as in wattage.
