Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Ampeg quality. Though this is an inexpensive combo, I feel the overall quality of this combo is good. Great for entry level amplification, or for use in small gigs and for amplifying acoustic bass guitars in the way I use this amp.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
I like that this combo tilts back. Allows for use as small monitor on stage. TRS 1/4" Line Out allows a balanced output to run to the house sound board or recording console. Simple EQ system -- always a plus.
How is the tone?
I really like a 12" driver for acoustic bass work. For my taste, it just sounds better than 10's or 15's for acoustic bass amplification. Rich sound. The 12" woofer has a way of resonating acoustic bass in a way that 10's and 15's just can't do. I can't explain it -- you just have to hear it to see for yourself.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
