      Comments about Ashdown TourBus 15W 1x8 Bass Combo Amp:

      Really solid little amp with a good overall sound. Very portable and packs a punch considering the weight and price. Would allow an electric bassist to hold their own in an unplugged jam with a few horns and a quiter drum/percussion along the lines of jazz drumming or hand percussion. Great for impromptu jams. Also great as a beginner amp or bedroom amp.

      Allows for a decent amount of tone shaping with 3 EQ controls. Ideal for a starter to explore finding their tone, or a seasoned pro looking to get something along the lines of what they get out of bigger and better gear. I was able to dial in a warm sound with a bit of high end spark thanks to my bass' onbaord preamp and the amp's EQ. Without the bass preamp (passive) I was still able to get great midrange tones and still a warm low-mid sound.

      The only thing I have an issue with is the lack of a backport or an open cab design. At max volume this will distort due to the cabinet design, not because of the preamp or post amp overloading.

      Simply put the air that the speaker pushes back can't go anywhere and the back and sides of the cabinet end up making a distortion sound. Otherwise it's a great little bass amp.

      Comments about Ashdown TourBus 15W 1x8 Bass Combo Amp:

      I don't often write reviews but this amp deserves a kudo. first off, the closed back on this amp. gets the most out of this little power house. I've always liked the sound of a lead guitar being played through a bass amp. Well, you'll get great sound here! I was skeptical because of the name?? (Tourbus!)What's this?? At the price, I couldn't resist. My friend listened and played for about one minute and said WOW! Where can I get one of these amps? Now, I've ordered a second (Ashtown tourbus) 15 watt bass amp. for him and am considering an Ashtown lead guitar amp for myself. The now price is hot!~ Get one! Light weight too!
