I've used this amp about 3 months. The cabnet is very solid and makes up a large portion of the weight. The front grille rattled pretty bad at moderate to high volume. I took it off and lined the edges with electrical tape. The rattle is almost gone. I opened it up, and it has a stamped metal basket 12" woofer. The magnet is about 50 or 60 oz. The tweeter is a paper cone and also has a large magnet (about the size of the cone). I also pulled the power amp. It uses Toshiba power transistors. The power supply is slightly overbuilt for a 60 watt design. Large filter caps, and a pretty hefty transformer. I measured the output and it does indeed put out 60 watts rms. The speaker isn't very efficiant so it doesn't sound as loud as some other amps in this power range. For the money i feel this is a great deal. I couldn't buy all the parts and wood and make one for this price. I found that it is best for vocals. I ran a keyboard, bass guitar and strat throught it (one at a time)and the sound was ok but weak. Bass was fair but air leaks all around the cabinet caused strange noises. Keyboard at lower to mid volume was fair. Guitar was also weak. With vocals it was very good. All in all a very good amp for the price. Fix the rattling grille and seal up the air leaks around the back cover and you'll have a nice little amp. I plan on buying another one.

I had this amp for about hald a day. I ordered to have as a practice amp for a new bass I had also ordered. The one I ordered was what they call a blemish you know a little scratch and you save a few dollars.When I opened the box the first thing I noticed was there was no packaging materials just a amp taped up in a card board box. Well after removing the amp from the box I discovered the blemish right away. This blemish was bigger than I had expected. The entire front of the speaker cabinet looked like it kicked back about 6" into the cabinet. It also looked like the amp chassis had some major blemishing on it too. ;).I was able to inspect the inside of the unit at this point quit easily and note that it as made of the cheapest particle board I'd ever seen in my life 1/2" I would guess. I also noted that the boards had no glue only very small brads. Obviously after inspecting this unit from the inside I had to desire to re order another and decided to get a real bass amp from Hartke.MF did a excellent job quicly supplying a RA and having Fedex come out and pick the item up so I would have to look at it anymore.

Purchased as a Keyboard amp for my Roland Piano, and as a lightweight little bass amp for playing bass at Church.Was a little disapointed in the Bass use of this amp; developed severe vibration and rattling, had to remove front and rear panels and reinforce. This solved this problem. I use this amp for my Roland stage piano in a Country band and have had no problems with this use of the product.
After 2 years of rugged use, the 4 I've bought have been solid, unfailing performers. They've been used for bass, keys, small P.A.s and Monitors. The sound shaping of the parametric EQ makes it usable for a variety of instruments. Don't let the low price scare you. These are quality amps.
Okay ... this was my first amp purchase. I needed something for my keyboard and I wanted to get a good deal. For the price this amp is okay. Construction is nice and the features (two channels with XLR & 1/4' inputs each) are cool. I had trouble with the XLR inputs though (small, cheap screws kept them in place, but continued to loosen and the inputs kept creeping back into the cabinet). I had a friend to help me replace the screws and have had no problems with the inputs since. As far as quality of sound, I recommend you buy another amp for live performance. I gave it a "3" ... quality for price (aka = you get what you pay for).
When shopping for this item I assumed at least that I would get what I payed for. That would be a decent amp for keyboard and vocal practice, and also small gig capability. I was wrong... The 60 watts are divided into 30 per channel. Each channel definately does not have 30 watts, more like 15 max. I'm not good with technology, but I know I blew something out. Now whenever I play through this amp it makes this disgusting rattling sound. It makes me sick. I didn't get the warrant, I mean it's like half the price. Just put the 100 bucks toward a Roland, or if that's out of your price range at least a Behringer, you won't be dissapointed the way you would with this amp.
Very pleased with this amp. Bought it to use with a set of e-drums and a keyboard, but am now using it for bass practice as well. It's got great range, does a nice job with both high and low frequencies. Seems reasonably well constructed. Hard to beat for the money spent.
This is not to bad of a buy. For the price it is a great value, however, it does not sound as great as some more costly models. I feel with music equipment you get what you pay for. I use this amp as a monitor for my keyboard in live performance only. I hear myself fine and the rest of the band has had no problems with the quality of my sound. I would not use this as a bass amp. The bass responce is poor but for home practice it would get the job done. I would still make this purchase it this amp ever goes out. I have owned this product for one year now with no problems.
I purchased one of these amps a month or so ago. After it arrived, I plugged it in using my M-Audio Midi controller and Yamaha Motif Rack. I was pleasantly surprised at how good it sounded for the monet I paid! To compare it to a Roland or Yorkville keyboard amp is not fair, but for the price it's quite good. I added some weatherstripping to the front to quiet the grill, and I may change out the drivers at some point, but for an inexpensive practice amp it serves the purpose very well. I may build an outboard cabinet to run with it and use the same drivers in both.All in all well worth the money for a 60 watt amp!
Don't buy it, believe me! The sound is terrible, it rattles and hums like a chainsaw, and the tech support to fix it is nonexistence. Getting a certified guitar tech to fix it costs almost as much as the amp. Any questions? forget about it!!
I purchased mine about a year ago, initially as a first bass amp, and also as something to run vocals and other various sound reinforcement duties. I had read a review from a dude who dismantled the thing and reported that the amp itself was built stout, it was the cab and the speaker that were lacking. I found this to be pretty much true. The cab and grille vibrate way to excessively for use as a serious bass amp, but some weather stripping fixed the grille. I replaced the speaker in mine with a more heavy duty PA speaker I got off ebay for 30 bucks (the original speaker was quite cheap, so I would recommend replacing it.)All told I have a buck thirty invested, and I've got a loud, solid, flexible dual channel amp. And don't forget it's got a four band parametric eq. I've had great results using it with keyboads, drum machines, and syths. The sound is quite good with the new speaker and the tweeter swithced on. I don't regret buying this amp at all. Keep in mind that it is kind of a fixer upper, but where else can you find this kind of power and versatility for so cheap.
This is a great value. Very loud, and sounds good. I use it for keyboards and vocals. Unfortunately, it's built cheaply - weatherstripping fixes the rattling grill, and a 2x12 piece of pine bolted to the back fixes the rattling back. I got mine when there was a line-out factory defect, but the manufacturer, AXL, was very helpful in telling me how to fix that.
