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:

      I got this amp about a year and a half ago and it worked great until about six months ago. Sometimes when turned the speaker just makes a crackleing noise with a very quit bit of my bass behind it even a nearly full volume. I don't know maybe I just got a bad egg.

          Comments about Acoustic B100mkII 100W Bass Combo Amp:

          Since getting this amp, I have used it for in home studio recordings and also live gigs. Amp sounds great! Lots of tone options! Simply can not beat this amp for the price from Musicians Friend! The only negative thing I can say and this is just because I have a bad back is that is heavy!!! I did not think it would be so substantial! That said, everything otherwise more than makes up for the weight. It is easy to use, all the controls make perfect sense. No mysteries trying to get great sound out of the amp. Plenty of volume for small to medium sized gigs. It can easily be miced or wired to direct out for bigger gigs. I like the fact that it is from a really cool company that has some history. I was looking at other amps but happy I came across this one! Bottom line... Get this one before they are gone!

          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.
