Everything I hoped it would be!
By: Dennis Shea
I'm a Busker. I already have two battery powered amps but when I saw the Pass Port Mini, it really caught my eye and piqued my interest. I checked out a bunch of videos reviews and read as much info as I could find. Other portables may have more power but I figured this had what I needed. And I was right! The Presets are easy to work with and I have already started to get creative with the software from Fender Fuse. I use a Bohemian "oil can" guitar with two P-90 style p/u and get a great sound. It is very portable and using Duracell Procell C batteries is working out okay. AMS always has good pricing and the payment plans are phenomenal for a hard working struggling artist like me. That's why I keep coming back! I can see the value of this amp as a practice/bedroom amp as I have it next to my computer while I mess with my presets. It's going to be a workhorse for me this summer down at the beach Great price, fast delivery, great payment options!
I’m happy with this purchase

Affordable little amp with 2 outputs. Clear sound with decent volume
It does exactly what it says it does. I haven't used the mic input, nor used the battery power. Everything else is good. Plenty of time has been spent with this hooked up to my laptop. Both to run the FUSE software and as a line in for backing tracks. Headphone out allows you to crank it for practice and on-line courses. I like it!~

It really does sound great for its' size. A lot of great features for both acoustic or electric guitars. AC/DC feature is key, though. The only thing that would give it the five star rating it deserves would be a rechargeable battery pack(s). Changing out dead C batteries is ridiculously expensive. Using rechargeable C cells is less so after the original outlay for batteries and charger; but how much better (especially when you're out busking and there's no power source), would it be to have an easily replaceable/rechargeable power source that you could simply snap into place on demand?

Great Mini PA For people Getting Started Out...

I was looking for a small, portable PA for a mic and my acoustic electric guitar. I checked out several and for its size and price, you can't beat it! I like playing for small get togethers and want to heard. Don't let its size fool you. It's got great sound. Probably what sold it to me was that it reverb. I like a little reverb for my voice and it fit the bill. Most of these in this price range don't have reverb. The other pluses to this is ALL the guitar effects on this and that it has both a power cord or its battery powered so it makes it portable. You can play it anywhere. I highly recommend it to someone who is just getting started out playing for friends, small gatherings or even street performances.You can't go wrong with this.
Worth every penney ! and more!

Very sturdy, solid built.
Best feature is the way it takes the medium of your guitar without changing your tone. Both acoustic and electric tone woods shine through perfectly. While it can add plenty of color to your tone if you like. They preset models are spot on. You could line out to a bigger speaker, it's plenty loud for its size though.
Pretty simple, just dial in what you like and play. Not an excess of confuseing stuff, just the right amount features. You can run some pedals if needed. I figured it all out without the manual if you know modeling amps I think you'll appreciate the simplisty of this one.
Amazing clean, Overdrive channels are really,really, really good models. Not sure how they did it but the even nailed the response of the pick attack. It's Fender magic I guess. I'm not going to wonder to much and enjoy and be thankful.
Your general opinion of this product.
This is a great little amp, Fender hit a home run with this little jewel. I'm a tube amp guy and I'm very impressed with the overall tone quality and that it's a PA system too. It's small, loud, clear ,simple and only 7W. I just wanted a good amp with a headphone jack for jamming @ 2 am and I got a lot more. Big-O surprise in a little package.
Big-O = Southern word/means real big. :-)
