Excellent amp use with a 4-ohm cab for max power

By Y2VymDldY

from Chester, United Kingdom

I traded in my 27 year old Ampeg V4B bass head which I have had from new. The Portabass 250 gets the same sound and more from ace soul motown sound to funk and rock. I also use it with an electric upright and I get an excellent sound which other musos comment on. Buy one you will not be sorry!

Great for any style or gig yet fits in your trunk!

By steve burrows

from Snohomish, WA

I am the bass player in a power trio that plays blues, funk and rock - both original and some covers. My portabass PBC2210 combo works great for all of it. Simple to operate and I don't mind taking it from home to practice and back. Bass in one hand and amp in the other. I've owned many amps-Hartke, SWR, Sunn, Acoustic and Fender and this thing blows them all away!

Great setup for the travelling musician

By jacowannabe

from Ames, Iowa

The portabass system has a wonderful tone that I haven't found with most other small amp systems. I love not having to take 2 cabinets that weigh 100 lbs and a huge rack to a gig. Just grab and go! It was also very suprising that I got a beautiful warm tone while playing my double bass through it. I had heard that it would be a great electric amp, but it is great with the upright. I think that this product is one of the best to come out in the last 5 years.

Big sound, small package!

Finally, someone made a lightweight amp with power! Ampeg certainly knows bass.

Too Cool

By Make it happen.

from The moon

Really warm for non-tube. Hope it can handle big gigs if they come around, but the sound is really warm and the controls are a sinch!
