A Versatile Little Amp in a Small Box

I play the bass in a 19 piece big band, which rehearses in a room on the first floor over a bar. I was looking for a small amp for rehearsal because the room is accessed by a steep narrow stairway. For the price, the quality of this little amp is amazing. I've seen other reviews where people have said the amp is noisy, but that's not a problem I've found. There are a wide range of sounds on offer, if you spend some time playing with the controls, and, thanks to the 'dynamiser' circuit, the overall tone remains vibrant and punchy at all times. Despite fighting against 4 trumpets, 4 trombones and 6 saxes - as well as guitar keys and drums - I get asked to turn down if I play much above one third volume! So I can use this amp on gigs too, without getting a hernia. I thoroughly recommend this amp.

Wow, what a great little amp. No it's not good for really loud gigs, massive punch, huge tone variety, ultra-pro sound, etc. BUT, for it's intended purpose, it's fantastic. I've played tons of amps over the years and I already own a killer rig for concerts and recording that can do just about anything - except it's big, heavy, and way too powerful for learning songs in my apartment and just fooling around. I needed a compact and lightweight amp that was cheap, and quite honestly I didn't really care that much about high quality sound, so I looked into the BX300. The tape/cd inputs and the headphone out are super convenient for learning songs discreetly. To my surprise, this thing really sounded pretty decent and was MUCH louder than I expected. The Shape function was better than I thought it would be. And the price! At usually $120, this is a steal. I compared this to about a dozen other "similiar" amps on the market and nothing else even came close - even some little combos that cost up to $350. Really, the offerings from Crate/Peavey/Fender/Rogue/etc. That are priced at about $220 or less are not even in the same league. And, judging from some of the other reviews posted here, this amp works fine for light gigging and rehearsals (which I wouldn't even had considered for something like this). So, if you need something small and light, for general practice and/or playing along with recordings (and maybe even a little gigging?), but you don't want a cheapo piece of crap that belongs in the WalMart music aisle, this is absolutely the best value on the market.

A wonderful combo bass amp

By Brad-fVNou

from Pittsburgh, Pa

See all my reviews

I have this amp and couldn't be more pleased with it. It is quite loud and can be used for practice, studio and smaller gigs. For larger gigs just patch it through the main board. Unlike some reviewers I get no hiss or white noise from this amp. The amp has a beautiful, full sound and works great with my effects pedals. I can shake the house with this little baby. If you need a good inexpensive bass amp - buy it!

Impressed with this little amp.

By Fred Horrell

from Cape Girardeau, Mo.

I've played bass for years, own the big Fenders, Kustom,Peavey, etc. I needed something small & easy to carry. I chose this one because of features & price. For a small amp, this Kicks Butt. Adjust the tone settings properly is a must.

bad a55 little combo

By That guy-WVz91

from Milledgeville, GA

This is great for studio work, I dont have to drag my Trace rig around from session to session. It does have a little hum and hiss, but it isn't anything that interferes with its sound. This amp has a great low end, and the mids and higs are pretty clear too. For the price, you cant beat it. It is definately not versatile enough to gig out on, but for session work and practice, it is a really good deal. These guys make top quality stuff, think the BMW of bass amps.

Good for a beginner....

By Electric Eye

from Las Vegas

I have had this amp for about 2 years now, and it is time for a new one. I was exited about this but when I started getting serious about tone I could not find one. The controls do not do much until you get about a quarter of the way on either side, the volume control only changes the volume every 2 lines. It distorts at about 1 1/2 on the volume also. Good for a begginer who is not serious about tone.

Awseom Bass!

By Very Happy Bass Player

from Billingsley, AL

This is an absolutly wonderful bass. I couldn't believe the punch and volume this amp could put out. I only turned the volume up around 1/3 of the way, and my wife yelling for me to turn it down.. It was viberating the floors! I could not have asked for a better bass amp for the price! Buy It! You wont be sorry.

Good practice Amp

By SpectorBassa'

from Fort Kent, ME

See all my reviews

If your the type of player like I am and like to feel the notes while you play them, don't get this amp. The amp is too small to handle my P-bass and it never really got too loud before it started to flutter on me. I sold it do an old band mate of mine. I'd opt for the next model up. The volume actually lasts past just practice mode ( You can actually jam with friends!!!) Do yourself a favor and don't get this amp unless you only want to practice with it.

great amp for a beginner

By Ibanez69

from Alameda, CA

This is an "ok" amp. I get a good slap tone with the shape button. But when you turn up the volume it begins to give off feedback or some kind of fuzz sound. It?s great for practice but not for shows.
