I had an RB20 that was basically a scaled down version of the RB30 and it was great; so much so that a friend of mine talked me out of it because he loved the sound of his Telecaster through it. Easy come, easy go. I was shopping for another one when I spotted the RB30 on sale. The reviews panned it but most seemed to be written by someone new to the language and completey baffled by physics. Clearly, I had to have one of these things. Within 10 minutes of it arriving, I had the fretless plugged in and found a nice equalization: put the mid, high and presence anywhere you want but for the love of God keep the bass pot at 9 o'clock or less (that's due west... left, get it?). O.K. A show of hands of those who believe that the driver and cabinet were carefully matched and ports calculated on the Thiel/Small formulas predicting the wavefront based on acoutical loading and other math/engineering type stuff. Right. No one. Good. The only math that went on selecting the driver was "what's the unit cost if we buy 10,000?". Drivers are like tires on a new car: low bidder junk that needs to go as soon as possible. Now that that's out of the way, let's talk about the positive things. It has plenty of power for practice (30 watts? I don't think so but that may be the fault of the driver). It has a nice eq section. It has a balance XLR out with it's own level control. Note that the balanced out is mic level, not line level so don't think you're going to get away with plugging it directly to a power amp (I tried it). The size and shape are real handy (it begs to be tilted back). It's light and has the best owner's manual I've ever seen: one side of a postcard and it said "plug in, turn on, shut up and play your bass", (I'm paraphrasing, of course) but NOT IN FRENCH or CHINESE! It would get a 10 for features if the balanced out were selectable between line and mic levels. It would get a ten for quality if it had a better driver but then it wouldn't be such a bargain. Now the next thing I'm going to do is unthinkable; I'm going to spend about a hundred bucks on a good 10" Eminence driver, dome tweeter, l-pad, some caps and chokes and this dude is going to sing like a bird. Anybody want their's modded? I've got ideas.

Don't buy this amp!

Please, don't waste your money. I know what you are thinking...why get a 10W when I can spend the same amount and get 30W? You are not getting 30W...you...Read complete review

Please, don't waste your money. I know what you are thinking...why get a 10W when I can spend the same amount and get 30W? You are not getting 30W...you are getting, at best, a poor quality 10W amp. Turning the nob up past 1/8th of the way results in a LOT of fuzz...especially if you have active and/or single coil pickups. You are far better off buying a Peavy Max 126, or a Behringer Thunderbird BX108. That is if you insist on staying cheap. Your best bet, though, is to bite the bullet and go for a Fender Rumble 15 or an Ashdown After Eight. They cost more, but you can count on the quality. Or, go to a pawn shop. Whatever..just don't buy this amp.

Don't Buy This Amp

By SkyhawkPilot

from Harned, KY

Like the past few reviews have said, the amp works fine for a few weeks, but then suddenly (and for no apparent reason) it starts to sound distorted. There is nothing you can do to get a clean sound out of it once it has started to crap out. This amp is a total waste of money, please look at other amps.

Great for foollin around...

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This is a perfect amp for simply foolin around, or playin with your buddies, but for gigs it doesn't have enough power. the features on it are good, but not the best, it has the basic needs to play, but it doesn't have any unique sounds, but it sounds real good anyway.

Sound Like Bass.

By W0FReto381

See all my reviews

This amplifier sounds pretty good. I use it a lot and I never see or hear anything wrong with it. My friend also has one of these and he did not take care of it. He had to throw it away 2 months after he bought it. Everything is great about this(value,sound), besides the low rated features.

Okay for solo practice,

By RockTillYouDrop

from Myrtle Point, OR

It sounded ok, had a minor defect in the input jack but played ok. I did not play it for more than an hour or two before deciding to exchange it. It just isn't loud enough. I was playing along with a Marshall MGCD10 (10w) and it couldn't keep up. I traded up for a Behringer.

Sounds pretty good.

By Fooseballrg72

from Redlands, Ca

This is not a bad amp. It's gits a really clear sound even with a boss overdrive/destortion pedal. I baught it because it was the loudest thing I could afford and I'm really happy with it. So if your going a cheap practice amp this is an awesome choice.

To heck with bass...its a great monitor!

By StabnSteer

from Kansas City

See all my reviews

I took one look at this guy and noting its built-in lean-back design and I figured this would be a fantastic self-powered monitor. Considering most self-powered monitors reach into the multi-hundred dollar realm, this little guy works great! I've also used it for small coffee shops as the main speaker after running my voice and guitar through a Mackie mixer.

PIECE OF JUNK

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I bought this amp almost 2 years ago. After two months, I couldn't get one clean sound from it. A couple of weeks ago it completely blew out and wouldn't utter a single sound. don't buy this amp.

Horrible

By The Faz

from Florida

This bass amp was the first that I have boughten myself, so its not as expensive as any past amps I've owned. But, I was very disappointed. I tryed my bass with this amp and for the first few weeks it was great, but then it stopped working alot. I replaced the wire and still it kept going out. So I am now going to replace this very bad amp.

Good at first

By Spud2112

from Pearl City, IL

I found this amp to be a good little practice amp. I also wanted to mainly use it for a direct in amp for recording, until I realized that the balanced XLR output jack in the back was actually an input jack. I don't know what happen there, but now its nearly useless to me. Don't buy this amp if your looking for a cheap direct in amp for recording.
