This amp is great! The thing about it is that it may not be for you though, I've heard people complain that it doesn't have as much punch on the bottom-end as they'd like, which alot of people love to have for funk. For the type of music I play though, which is rock/punk, it suits my needs perfectly. I use it with my Fender P-Bass. I love the features, 4 band EQ plus I like the brighen switch which is pretty cool. For 75 watts, this thing is pretty loud - my neighbors can hear it in their kitchen and my amp's not even halfway up. For some of you guys gigging, it may only be a 75 watter, but you can hook this think up to external cabinets/speakers. It's pretty durable too with that grill, I bet I could kick the thing pretty darn hard and it would still stay protected. Overall, this amp is great and I like the sound. Hope this has helped someone.

If you're looking for absolute mediocrity go with this. It's not loud enough to play with drums. It's not loud enough to go against any kind of guitar. The tone is hard to dial in with passive or active bass. And the tone takes a nose dive after you turn in up past 2. Keep the volume low and its a pretty decent amplifier.

Good for a beginner, not considerably enough.

By AndrewLC

from Boxford, MA

Good price, if Peavey has made adjustments on this "new updated" model. Mine from a few years back, is just nearly powerful enough, and does not deserve the 75W tag. It can not handle a passive bass such as the Ibanez GSR200 as the two of the combined lack enough controls to hone in on better tones, that don't blare out at large volumes.

By Justin Cornell

Excellent Starter Amp. Highly recommended

By Freedomslave

from Shelbyville, TN

This amp has all the necessary features for a starting bassist. With the 4 band EQ you can tweak your tones fairly well. Excellent for practicing alone or with your new band, but enough power to play small clubs with no PA. I would highly recommend to budget-minded first-time buyers.

wow

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I got this amp about a month ago.The amp is great. It has a perfect sound.The features are very good.This amp is loud enough for me to play with my friend that plays drums. That means it is prety loud becase he is a hard hitting drummer.When this amp is turned up all the way it is kind of blairy but that is why it has an external speakr/cabnet jack. I have been playing for a year and this amp suites all my needs. I will probaly start gigging with this amp.

SO SO amp

By BASS Critic 101

from Abbotsford, BC, Canada

Its ok for a starter amp. I upgraded to an Eden, so my ears are spoiled. The amp does tend to distort or discolor the sound of the bass once you get past half volume. Also had a tendency to make my bass sound out of tune when to loud. Also, it has no di out for recording or pa.For starting out, it will get the job done but if your looking for good tone, look to Eden (Blues or Rock) or SWR (Punk or Rock)

ok amp

By zildjian player

from australia

This amp is ok... i've had it for about 2 years and it got the job done for just practicing but if you turn it up over 1/2 you get a kind of distorted sound... if you are on a budget and are going to use this for small shows and practicing, it's pretty good.

Basic 112 a steal.

By Ceege

from NM

I've had this combo for 3 years now. I have played in lots of small concerts gigs, and sessions. The send feature allows for the Bass to be sent through a PA which sounds great in an auditorium. Get next to the drums though, and you'll be forced to crank that thing up. I don't start to get any distorted problems until i hit about 8 or 9 on the volume. With an extra bit of juice from my pedal, this combo can kick. And if you're looking for a portable amp, this is about the biggest you want to get if your gonna be caryying on and off stage. Love this Amp!
