Bought for my 9 yr old son for his birthday, on the advice of Musicians Friend (who have given consistently great advice in the past) and his bass teacher. Great sound, plenty loud, very versatile. In my opinion a great value. I also bought the warranty, with encouragement from MF, and afterward mentioned that to his teacher who thought it was a great idea (especially for an enthusiastic 9 year old).

Now, I'm not what you would call an expert when it comes to amps, but I definitely have experience with using a few different brands for the years I've been playing; Fender, Peavey, Behringer, Yamaha, etc... But of all that I've had, this Acoustic amp has been most disappointing. I hope that it is just manufacturer defect, but the thing only lasted 2 months before it stopped making sound at all. A month and a half in it started crackling and cutting out intermittently, and it got worse and worse until it stopped working completely. Cycling on and off used to fix it, but that doesn't anymore either. Sounded OK while it did work, but didn't work for long. I never turned the gain up past half and never brought the volume near its max, so unless there's something I'm completely misunderstanding, which I don't believe is the case since I've never blown any other amps I've used, the manufacturer is at fault for giving me a bad amp. Hoping to have them replace it for me soon.

Comments about Acoustic B100mkII 100W Bass Combo Amp:

The compressor not turning off is unforgivable, even to compressor users witch I am not. Well made attention to detail, great price for a 1-15 but for me the always-compressor puts this one in the mistake buy category for this old dynamics player.

          This amp is bigger than I expected. That's not a bad thing, but it's a monster for 100w. Finding any other amp that is this loud for the price is the real challenge.

            I am very disappointed in this amp. It's now in the repair shop after not even 2 years of moderate use. The sound cuts in and out and makes a crackling noise. This is very frustrating when you're in the middle of playing a set and all of a sudden the sound goes out. This must be a manufacturing problem based on another reviews comments. Seems we are having the same issue.

            Comments about Acoustic B100mkII 100W Bass Combo Amp:

            Nice amp at a great price. Sounds nice for both my fretless bass guitar and upright electric. At least for this 70 year old bass player, a little heavy and 100W is a little weak for larger venues. Great for the home studio, small clubs, and rehearsals but keep finding volume turned up way past half to get the volume I want and need. I play jazz, not rock, so volume shouldn't be an issue but I'm still turned way up. Rock, you need to be in the system. So my suggestion is to keep that in mind. Still gets the job done and no complaints from fellow musicians so must be OK. Maybe they all think "...jeez that guy is really loud..!" Ya never know. Good luck all. Break a leg.
