I've had this unit for a few years and use it occasionally. I haven't tried competing products like the Bass-in-a-box or Pocket Rock-it but this thing hasn't changed since I first saw one in the early 1980's. With all of the high tech micro gadgetry around today, I wound think someone could come up with a much better unit that has amp/cab and effect modeling built in. It works but the headphones suck and it has a constant hiss esp. When using the mid and treble boost functions. If you want to go retro, this is for you!

Overpriced For What You Get.

    Comments about Rockman Bass Ace Headphone Amp:

    The Bass Ace functions as intended, sound is decent if used with a good pair of headphones. The included headphones are pathetic and function more as an insult than their intended purpose. Feels cheaply built for the price range it sells in. Purchased because of limited choices for this type of product on Musician's Friend. Works as advertised.

        Comments about Rockman Bass Ace Headphone Amp:

        Maybe I had too many expectations, but this was a 100% waste of money. All I wanted was a decent-sounding headphone amp to practice quietly with. Poor, weak sound quality, even with pro headphones (Sony MDR7506). Tried brand new battery, the 12V power supply, still awful. And the output of an American Standard Jazz bass with passive pickups causes overloads?? And then, the limiter kicks in so early, it's useless. I'm not a deaf person, either. I'm a pro audio engineer, mixing for the local orchestras, Gospel groups, and jazz artists. I'm certainly open to suggestions from other users to make this thing better, but for now, it is going in the bottom drawer, where things usually get thrown away in a few years.

        Rockman "Bass Ace"

        By ronnie Wagner

        from Lake Tahoe

        Comments about Rockman Bass Ace Headphone Amp:

        Just OK
        I have the original Rockman for guitar, from back in the day, which came with the power adaptor. SO it never occurred to me, and was not advertised, that NO POWER SUPPLY was included! It costs $15 more! Plus the unit takes 9V batteries, which cost $13.00 a pack.

        The unit works OK, but not enough volume compared to the Rockman for guitar.

        Also, you need another adapter to plug in an Ipod (from 1/4 to mini plug) not sure how much that costs.

        Suits my purpose

        This is a so-so product. Its hard to get the buzz eliminated from the low notes, but overall not bad. The sound is passable, about halfway between unusable and outstanding. Using this product is better than trying to practice the bass without any amplification. I have been using it quite a bit, and would buy it again.

        Don't make the mistake of buying the Dunlop ECB-004 power supply like I did. It doesn't fit. Maybe a power supply might improve the sound? I actually like the battery anyway, because its one less cord in the way.

        Iffy

        By t. curren

        from Arcata, CA

        Comments about Rockman Bass Ace Headphone Amp:

        The first thing you'll notice is hiss. Hiss before you play, hiss while you play, and hiss as you let a note sustain. This is accentuated by the fact that it can't handle passive pick-ups at or above half volume, and the unit has to be turned up almost fully.Occasionally you'll hit a note or two that causes some warble, with the note cutting in and out.Hitting the mid-boost or treble-boost also kills the bass range, rather that simply enhance said frequencies.That all ignored, it sounds almost late '80s Trace Elliot-ish with punchy, rubbery tone, which I like. Acoustic guitars sound good through it, too.[I play it through pro DJ headphones.]

        A great way to practice. It could be a terrible product at the price, but it's not!

        Great tonal variety

        By Rocky9059

        from Louisville, KY

        Comments about Rockman Bass Ace Headphone Amp:

        I have been using the Bass Ace for over a year now, and I love it. I've been using it on both bass and guitar. On the guitar, I get a very wide range of tones, it's awesome. The headphones kind of suck, but I just used some better headphones, and everything sounded great. On Bass, the range of tone is smaller, but that's what I would expect with lower frequencies. Overall a great product.
