An excellent amp to learn on.
The Nemesis N8 40W Bass Combo Amp is the perfect amp for players just learning their instrument. Now, the beginning bassist can clearly hear what (and how) they're playing, allowing them to develop proper technique at an earlier stage of development. It's also a great amp for more advanced players who need a small home practice amp.

The Eden Nemesis N8 is the best practice amp going, period. I have been looking at picking up bass after 30+ years as a 6-string player... I have shopped and played my way through virtually EVERY "starter" amp out there. If you are an experienced musician and need quality tone even in your practice environment, then this is the only amp out there that will satisfy you.
Right out of the box, the speaker in my new Nemesis N8 had a serious buzz in it. Being a beginner, I took it to an experienced bass player, who confirmed my suspicion.I returned the amp, and intend to buy the 50 watt Crate, as a replacement.
This combo is great. I recently bought it so that I could have a practice amp at home and in case I needed to play small gigs. It works wonderfuly. I have a ESP 5-string and a Fender Jazz and they both sound incredible through it. Very basic and simple controls and excelent sound. This is worth buying.
i got this amp about 8 months ago, back when my band was just me and a drummer, and it performed great..now my bands bassist uses it at practice, and it hols up ok..we're a 3 piece band, and it can occasionally be heard when the guitarist goes into a solo, but not really any other times, but hey, its only 40 watts so you cant complain..the only thing that i would say is bad about this amp is when you turn it up all the way, it distorts and doesnt very good..other than that, if your are a beginning bassist looking for a solid practice amp to jam with, this is all you..
This amp will amaze you in the volume it can produce out of this 40W amp!If you hear it blindfolded you would think it's a bigger amp in size, since it handles the lows quite well!The amp has a fixed enhance built in, which is a little less beneficial for back pickup players.Overall it's a great amp, sounding really great; a better deal then other brands!I use the preamp out to power a larger old 115 basscombo to get more juice!
I have now played my Nemesis N8 regularly for a number of months. Unlike other inexpensive amps I have owned, the more I play the N8 the more I like it. This one is definitely not going to eBay! As I noted previously, I believe the N8 is a unique product: unabashedly a high quality PRACTICE amplifier (e.g. flexible preamp, plywood construction)...with all the touch and tone of a big rig but without the drywall-splitting volume. This said, the mark of a good instrument is that it has enough inherent value to inspire further investment. For me, the N8 easily clears that bar. A month ago, I swapped out its heavy duty paper-surround 8" (a very good speaker) for an Eminence NH2008 with rubber surround, Hemp Cone, neodymium magnet structure, and 2" voice coil (an absolutely excellent speaker). The only tool I needed was a Phillips screwdriver. For my finger style playing, this premium motor at once gives the Nemesis even more tone and a bit more accuracy at the very bottom. I lost a few watts going to 8 ohms, but I had 40 to start with and...in my townhouse, anyway...they aren't missed.
