General What is your overall opinion of this product? I was nervous of being stuck with a sales gimmick here, with vintage being in style again. Took a chance with this product & am as happy as can be. I would recommend this to a friend. Quality How is the quality of the product? Was it well made? I've only used it on about 5 gigs in the couple weeks I've had it. No problems yet. The side handles are awesome & the silver fabric still looks great. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? My favorite part about this amp is that it has the vintage sound with modern day features. It was the selling point over the vintage Fender Bassman's. My favorite is the auto bias computer in the back. As well as the pull knob mute. Sound How is the sound quality? How does the sound compare to other products you've use? My passive vintage basses (Fender J Bass & Peavey T-40) sound nothing short of amazing. Almost giving the capability to sound "how they are supposed to". The slightest little movements will be picked up, almost like youre discovering new capabilities in your playing. Yet, there is ONE con... My active electronic basses don't really sound that good on it to me, its def. a vintage tone rock/funk & soul monster. Feel Are the controls logically laid out? Easy to use, the whole two channel set up is awesome. Tone How is the tone? Distortion vs clean? VERY Clean and WARM on the clean setting. VERY WARM and FUZZY overdrive. No pedal or digital effect can replicate this tone. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? A bit pricy, but if you can afford it...Go for it. Not a single complaint. Especially with the payment plan option only a couple gigs a month and its paying for itself!
