500 watts.. really ?
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
I'm mainly skeptical about the wattage rating on this thing. For 250.00 you can't really go wrong but I was hoping that on those times with a smaller stage ..I could run 1 smaller 8ohm cabinet and use mainly for monitor and let the house PA handle the rest. But at 8ohms you're getting approximately 250 watts and I can't hear over a drummer with that. I've ran my 4-10 Hartke at 4ohm and sounds substantially better but I noticed the knobs were up a good way. My other concern is the input switch for active or passive basses. I run passive for my jazz bass. I then have to crank the preamp knob way up before it red lights for clipping. But If I run it in active mode..It's way punchier and I can run the preamp knob way down..and it sounds good..BUT..the red light is almost always on. Just never dealt with that on other bass heads. I was wanting something lighter and portable so I wouldn't have to carry my Hartke LH1000 around. Just not sold on it yet...but for a personal monitor onstage or a practice rig..it's excellent.

Best bang for your buck period!
What is your opinion of this product?
500 watts, 5 lbs, great sound, simple layout..... $249... WIN. There is no better amp for the money on the market. Got this as a backup and I think it just became my number one gigging amp.
