Great little PA....When it works!
Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
This is my issue. I've owned this system for about 14 mos, now. Had no issues until just over a year. Then during band rehearsal one evening, the left channel went out completely. System was just out of manuf warranty (of course), but LUCKILY, I purchased it here at American Musical,so an extra year warranty was included. Took about a month to get it back. The left amplifier had to be replaced.Unusual, since it had only been used for occasional band practice/solo practice (acoustic guitar and vocals only). I did read another review elsewhere where the customer had the same problem...left channel amp. So, beware of this potential issue if considering this PA....and DO buy it at AM for the extenteded warranty and great customer service.
Features
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
Pros: *Quick, easy setup/break down *Lightweight - Only 50 lbs *Good power for small venues *ipod/aux for MP3 is nice *Decent reverb selection Cons: *Questionable reliability *Only 2 band EQ (no mid) *No adapter bracket available for mounting the head on a mic stand. It has the holes on the bottom, similar to the Yamaha Stagepas, but no adapter available, at least when I purchased. This may not be the case, now.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
The system is very easy to use, even if you've not had much experience with sound reinforcement. Setup is a breeze, especially for a simple set up like I use it for...vocals and acoustic guitar.
Sound
How is the tone?
Sound quality is not bad for a system at this price point. It is obvious that Samson was modeling this system after the Yamaha Stagepas 500. I played through the Stagepas (guitar only) before buying the Samson. I thought the Yamaha barely edged out the Samson in sound quality. The system really needs a Mid EQ to help with guitar tone quality. My Taylor sounds great, but I installed a K&K sound body transducer (SBT) setup, instead of an under saddle. transducer (UST).Guitars with the latter can sound a bit quacky (mid-rangy) through the system if going in direct.
General
Your general opinion of this product.
Great product which does go toe to toe with the Yamaha, at a lower price point. I've used the system mainly for band/solo practice, but have gigged with it once...a wedding reception for a med-sized room, which it handled beautifully. If not for the quality issue with the power amp,I would have given it 4.5 stars. I just feel like it's inevitable that the power amp will go out again, and probably during a gig. Therefore, I have "trust" issues with the system. Possibly Samson has addressed the issue with later released units? Let's hope so.
