Solid practice amp, but not expandable

Good amp for the price, but not enough power to really play with a drummer. No outputs

Comments about Acoustic B30 30W Bass Combo Amp:

Just got this amp and it works great with my p-bass. I like the four band EQ, gives you a little bit more control than a strict 3 band. The alternate shape button also adds a little more control. The overdrive is also nice.
I haven't seen how loud this amp will get yet but it is decent for practice and can easily be heard over a drum kit. I also used this with my acoustic and sounds decent when you tweak the EQ.

    If you want vintage bass tone this is a great choice. Used with my P bass with TI flats I get a sweet old school tone.

    Comments about Acoustic B30 30W Bass Combo Amp:

    I got this little amp a couple weeks ago. Its really nice for practice. It even handles the low b on my 5 string pretty well and gets loud for its size. It is the loudest and best sounding practice amp I have heard or played through. It would make a good cheap recording amp but it has no direct out so you have to mic it.

    Excellent sounding amp. Use to own a much larger version back in the 70's. This one lives up to the standard. This amp, tone-wise, blows my old am away (Ibanez SW35) at a much better price.

          Great little practice amp! Surprisingly loud and articulate for only 30 watts! It fills the bill for bedroom practice, and is powerful enough for Church on Sundays and smaller gigs and jam sessions. This amp is worth every penny. The build quality is very good, very sturdy construction for this price range! I'm very happy with this great little combo!!

                Have played a lot bigger amps that didn't have the sound this has. Good practice amp or small venue where you don't need a lot of push. Would recommend this to any one who wants portable easy to carry amp. Great small room or garage band amp.

                        Comments about Acoustic B30 30W Bass Combo Amp:

                        I am a guitarist by trade, so I wanted an affordable amp that could use to get into bass. This amp really does it all and sounds good doing it. I really like the controls and the variety of sounds you can achieve, especially with the shape switch. I don't really use the OD often, but it sounds good.

                        This amp is a very good volume for playing at home a practicing. It sounds very good at low to medium volumes and can crank pretty loud if needed. I have often gigged indoors with this with a drummer, and although it sometimes needs to be fully cranked, it gets the job done and is heard well. However, at an outdoor gig with a heavy hitting drummer it did start to struggle to keep up but was a contender.

                        The only reason I did not give this a 5 star review was because of it's lack of output options that it offers on the rest of the line. I know that might be a lot to ask, but it is a HUGE upgrade to this amp, and is something they obviously already know how to do. I honestly do not understand how in this day and age that is not a standard feature on any amp.

                          Very loud for 30 watts. Super clean lows even when cranked. We use it for an electric cello, but have tried a 5 string bass through it. Does fine on the low b string.

                              This is a terrific little amp for practicing and small gigs. For recording it is also very good either mic'ing it or using the headphone jack as an output into a board or a DAW setup. Some reviews stated there was no dedicated out for direct recording but that headphone out jack can be used for that purpose. You might want to get a cable that reduces from stereo to mono if it would make you feel better but it really doesn't matter. I play a Fender Jazz bass (passive pups) and Ibanez (active pickups) through this amp and they both sound terrific. It may be only 30 W but it will rattle the windows before you max out the volume.

                                We were pleasantly surprised by the great bass sound this amp has! We were also surprised by its size. It is pretty large, and it is very heavy. We love the sound we get from it in our performances! One thing that is concerning is that the power cord is permanently attached as opposed to being removable. It is concerning because if it ever gets a short, it will be impossible to replace. Other than that, we are very happy!!
