Ordered a re-stock version (it's like brand new!) of this amp to save some $$ and it was delivered 5 days later! Couldn't wait to get it unpacked and plugged in. I had originally purchased the Ampeg BA-108 and it wasn't near loud enough for jamming with electric guitars IMO.

But THIS amp will do nicely and it sounds great. Has a warm sound when using the neck pickup and a super punchy / bright sound using the bridge pickup. Sounds great when slapping!

Overall couldn't be happier with the sound and price and it looks cool too! Here's hoping my wife doesn't notice the new addition.

The micro-cl looks cool and delivers a pretty good rock bass sound in a surprisingly light and portable package. However, try before you buy as there appears to be QC issues with the stock speakers and 2x10 cab. My cab out of the box had to be replaced--a speaker sounded blown right out of the box or was not wired correctly. The micro-VR with the 2x10 emminence cab is probably a better way to go if you can afford it want the ampeg sound in a small package. But this works fine if you are a guitar playing fooling around or a beginning bassist.

    Comments about Ampeg Micro-CL 100W 2x10 Mini Bass Stack Black:

    This was a great deal! I had to get one after reading all of the great reviews and seeing the latest article in Premier Guitar where it received 4 1/2 out of 5 stars. This thing can crank so don't let it's small size fool you and the 100W head can easily power a larger cabinet. The only real complaint is the cab can become a bit muddled when the volume is cranked but replacing the cabinet with one of higher quality def shows it's this cabinet! But all in all great practice/jamming amp.

      Comments about Ampeg Micro-CL 100W 2x10 Mini Bass Stack Black:

      Try as I might, I can't think of anything I don't like about this amp. For it's size, it cranks, has great sound, has strait forward well thought out controls, and the variable aux input for iPods, and other music sources makes it a great tool for practicing.

      If I played big venues, it would be way too small, but for bars, jamming with friends, practice etc, I love it. It looks cool too.

      Oops, just thought of one thing I'd change.....I'm not crazy about the plastic input jacks, though they haven't failed me yet, they seem kind of cheap for a relatively high priced amp.

        I find this amp has a very great tone. And the separate AUX volume control is very good when you're playing alongside a track on your ipod. This is definitely well worth the money. For someone who uses a fair amount of effects and plays heavy music, I was able to get a very good tone for that rather easily. I couldn't recommend this amp more. The active pickup input is definitely a very nice addition.

          Comments about Ampeg Micro-CL 100W 2x10 Mini Bass Stack Black:

          Great practice amp. I thought it may have enough beef for a small/med gig, but when I tried to add enough bass for a bass-ier tone, at the level I had it (not cranked) the cabinet just couldn't handle it, and started farting out. In my opinion only, this is a manufacturing/design defect, considering the amp and cabinet go together, and you cannot buy them seperately. Overall though, a great practice amp, and I assume recording amp. Own the coolest practice rig on the block with this one!

          Comments about Ampeg Micro-CL 100W 2x10 Mini Bass Stack Black:

          I bought this amp based on my experience with Ampegs over time. I was not disappointed. It has a quality sound, feel, and touch, with excellent build quality as well. For a small amp, the deep bass it provides is everything I hoped for and rivals my bigger amps. Controls are straightforward and angled so you can see them easily while standing. This is a great amp for practice or playing intimate venues.

          Comments about Ampeg Micro-CL 100W 2x10 Mini Bass Stack Black:

          This thing is fantastic. I was in the market for a practice amp, since I didn't want to lug around my bigger rig to and from practice. This beauty, pushing 100 watts, surpassed the sound quality I was hoping for significantly. The only major downside I can find if that it doesn't have it's own Direct Input, which makes it a little difficult to simulate my main tone. It doesn't respond as warmly to my Low-B as much as I'd like. But realistically for the price paid, I can't complain.

          The tone is as fantastic as anything you'd hear from ampeg. You get an overkill of volume for full band practice and plenty for smaller gigs. A nice plus is the head makes for a great backup in the event that your main rig fails. If you need a loud portable rig for practice or small venues that pushes a good tone, I'd highly recommend weighing in on this.

            Great little amp. Awesome sound. Been needing an amp big enough to stay with the guitar and drumer, but small enough to move. Two speaker cab is the way to go, sound is sharper and smoother then with a single speaker. Also a great amp head for individual practice.

                  This is a terrific amp in a small package. The micro size is, for lack of a better word, ADORABLE. Typically that's not what I look for in a bass amp, but in this case it's great. It's got the nice, classic Ampeg look, but it's supremely easy to transport, takes up virtually no room on a small stage, and looks nice in my house. And yeah, it SOUNDS GREAT, too. It has way more depth for such a small amp, with the perfect amount of punch for slapping. Plenty of volume for playing with a drummer. The EQ is a typical simple 3-band, but it works fine to get whatever tone you prefer. Works great with my P and J basses and actually suits my upright really well, too. There are no real accoutrements to it (aside from the play-along aux in function, which I doubt I'll use much). It's just a really good small bass amp with a sound you'd never expect to come from something so diminutive.

                      I took out the original speakers and replaced them with one 8 ohm 200 watt speaker, left the bottom speaker hole empty and WOW! This amp really opened up and is clear and actually LOUD. Responsive tone controls and plenty of volume, can be used with the supplied line out for input with the PA and therefore the monitors. I have the 8-10 cabinet, 4-10 cabinet, 1-18 cabinet and they are for rehearsals now...

                          I have nothing against this fine piece of machinery. It works like a champ, except for the fact it blew one of the 10's out in a matter of 3 months after purchasing. Wouldn't even turn the volume past 5, and no I was not using an active bass. Maybe its just my luck. Although it would be nice to know what kind of 10 it is so I can get the correct replacement. I was also thinking of modifying the cab to run my effects through it in a live performance, also so I could run a bigger head through it. But Idk

                            This is a great bass amp. Perfect for practicing around the house. It could also be used for small gigs. Easy to move around without much hassle.
                            Really nice punchy sound. I use a Fender Jazz bass (MIM) with it and it sounds great.
                            Quality is very good. Very good looking too. I'm very happy with this amp.

                                Great for practice, jammin with the band, or small gigs. True Ampeg sound quality. Never leave for a gig without it. For a large outdoor venue, need to plug into a PA anyway. Big sound, small package.

                                  Amp has a problem. Speaker cab with Gaillen-Krueger 200W head and 1-15 cab rattles stuff in the room. Haven't practiced with band yet. Light weight and easy to move. That's what I was after.

                                  The micro-cl looks cool and delivers a pretty good rock bass sound in a surprisingly light and portable package. However, try before you buy as there appears to be QC issues with the stock speakers and 2x10 cab. My cab out of the box had to be replaced--a speaker sounded blown right out of the box or was not wired correctly. The micro-VR with the 2x10 emminence cab is probably a better way to go if you can afford it want the ampeg sound in a small package. But this works fine if you are a guitar playing fooling around or a beginning bassist.
