General Your general opinion of this product. I was skeptical as I always used a big, bulky, heavy name brand PA system. I wanted a small, compact unit for small venues (hospitals, nursing homes, churches, charity gigs, coffee houses). But all the small PA's I bought sounded pretty bad or ended up being larger than I was looking for. I wanted to try something completely different so I order this one from AMS. Not much in the way of reviews from around the net, so I took a chance. Glad I did. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? It is well made, and heavier than I anticipated. But it seems sturdy and solid. Not much in the way of controls but I fixed that with a small 4 channel Behringer non powered mixer with FX. The included gig bag is perfect. About the size of a large brief case. 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? Had it up and running in less than 5 minutes including reading the manual. If you can't figure this out, find another line of work. It's that easy! Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? It is so compact that you can carry in one trip WITH your guitar. Makes those solo gigs a breeze. The reverb on the unit is pretty bad, but I added a small mixer with reverb and delay so that fixed that problem. The sound out of the box is a little tinny for me, but my wife (a drummer, so what does she know) said it reproduced my Martin to a tee. With a small mixer, it sounds good. I like the overall sound, with some tweeking, and it is more than loud enough for small gigs. The tripod and carry case are very nice. Sound How is the tone? Not much in the way of controls. What you sound like unplugged is pretty much what you will sound like plugged into this unit. I prefer more bass, but that's me. Others who heard me play through this thought it was fine as is. Overall, it reproduces exactly what you sound like...no hiding behind special effects or delay/reverb here. If you sound bad unplugged, you will sound bad plugged into this only louder. If you sound really good unplugged, you'll sound great with this. I am pleased overall. And I do this for a living and have for 45 years. The difference between a Bose compact and this is not worth the difference in price. I am happy with this choice.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? We've only had this for a month - but we love it. It's sleek, we only use it for vocals, but the range is great. 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? This one's pretty simple, you just plug it in. Sound How is the tone? We've only used it for vocals and light accoustics, and for that it just can't get any better. General Your general opinion of this product. It's great!
