    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).

    I use the amp for my Yamaha DTX-500K Electronic Drum kit and at low volume the amp sounds really good but from 75% volume on up,the speaker produces a mid-range distortion/vibration that sounds terrible. I would not recommend using this amp with an Electronic Drum Kit unless its for practice only or only use on-stage "If" you use the Direct Out to send the signal to the Main mixing board. This amp/speaker combination produces distortion/vibration at high volume levels~!

      Comments about Acoustic B100mkII 100W Bass Combo Amp:

      I bought this amp to go along with an Acoustic B30. Since having the B100 I haven't even played through the B30. I'll probably use the B100 as my main amp for practice, etc.

          wanted something better than a "practice" amp. This was a really good bass amp, everything I need for years to come, I won't outgrow this.

            This is a great ax, the sale price was incredible, and the personal attention was over the top. Cons: no cover, no wheels. C'Mon, way too heavy and oddly shaped not to have wheels. No matter, I bought a set and got 'em on. And why no cover? I'm working on that one. Been playing a few days, and a friend stopped by today and tweaked it a bit. Couldn't ask for more for an elec bass/bass.

                Comments about Acoustic B100mkII 100W Bass Combo Amp:

                I purchased the Acoustic B100MkII to replace an aging Peavey TNT 130, my initial reaction to the sound of the B100mkII was not very good. At low volume the amp sounded ok, but at higher volume there was a fluttering sound coming out of the speaker box. It was driving me crazy, so I pulled the 15" speaker out. This amp is a sealed cab, no ports. I noticed a dime size hole where the wires for the speaker come through, with the cab sealed it is forcing all the air through this dime size hole. I put a strip of gorilla tape over the hole and put more insulation on the inside top and bottom of the speaker box. Problem solved, now the B100MKII thumps like it should. While I had the speaker out the cab is made with MDF, it has internal bracing and it looks like it is all glued together. There is sound insulation on the sides and back but not the top and bottom?? The magnet on the speaker looked about a 56oz with the positive and negative wire leads soldered on the speaker tabs.
                My bass guitar is a peavey foundation with passive pickups. I put the tone control knobs at the 12:00 position and the gain knob all the way clockwise and slowly raised the volume knob to about the 1:00 position and the clip light never came on. This is more volume than I will ever use at rehersal or at a small club. I settled with the tone conrol knobs at about the 2 to 3 oclock position. This gave a good solid punch and good low end. Plus it has a XLR with a level knob for external power amps or mixing board use. I did not try the overdrive channel, Im to old school to use so other reviewers are going to have to fill that in. The control knobs feel solid but I did have to give all the screws that hold the chasis and chrome corners extra turns with a philips head screwdriver. This amp is made in China and I think they rush the building of these amps. The tone is better than my Peavey TNT 130, but time will tell if the reliability is as good as my 30 year old USA made Peavey TNT.

                  basically purchased for around home and small venue use. Excellent value for the money and fits the bill just as I was hoping for. If I were to put anything for a con, it would just be that I expected a little more power--even with the overdrive on, I'm needing AT LEAST half-way gain and half-way volume. The sound is good but Im not real comfortable "pushing" my equipment. As I said, for the money it's worth it!

                    This thing is great! I only do home recording, and this thing is wonderful. And with the port on the back, I can mic it and get an untouched sound out of it at the same time. Makes for some cool stuff to do with the bass.

                      All that I can say about this amp is WOW!!! The volume and tone that you can and will get out of this beast is unbelievable! Anything from deep, deep lows to that Geddy Lee treble sound. This is a no-brainer if you are looking for a great amp for a low price. Just get it!!!

                        This is a great amp for the price and has a 3-year warranty. The XLR output makes this a perfect amp for small gigs and recording, and one of the reasons for using this amp. The unit is heavy and well built. It also has a nice classic look.
