Solid practice amp, but not expandable

Good amp for the price, but not enough power to really play with a drummer. No outputs

Comments about Acoustic B30 30W Bass Combo Amp:

Just got this amp and it works great with my p-bass. I like the four band EQ, gives you a little bit more control than a strict 3 band. The alternate shape button also adds a little more control. The overdrive is also nice.
I haven't seen how loud this amp will get yet but it is decent for practice and can easily be heard over a drum kit. I also used this with my acoustic and sounds decent when you tweak the EQ.

    If you want vintage bass tone this is a great choice. Used with my P bass with TI flats I get a sweet old school tone.

    Comments about Acoustic B30 30W Bass Combo Amp:

    I got this little amp a couple weeks ago. Its really nice for practice. It even handles the low b on my 5 string pretty well and gets loud for its size. It is the loudest and best sounding practice amp I have heard or played through. It would make a good cheap recording amp but it has no direct out so you have to mic it.

    Excellent sounding amp. Use to own a much larger version back in the 70's. This one lives up to the standard. This amp, tone-wise, blows my old am away (Ibanez SW35) at a much better price.

        Comments about Acoustic B30 30W Bass Combo Amp:

        Great little practice amp! Surprisingly loud and articulate for only 30 watts! It fills the bill for bedroom practice, and is powerful enough for Church on Sundays and smaller gigs and jam sessions. This amp is worth every penny. The build quality is very good, very sturdy construction for this price range! I'm very happy with this great little combo!!

                Have played a lot bigger amps that didn't have the sound this has. Good practice amp or small venue where you don't need a lot of push. Would recommend this to any one who wants portable easy to carry amp. Great small room or garage band amp.

                            I use this amp for practicing, and it would also be great for band rehearsals and gigs in small spaces. I was surprised at how much power it offers -- I turn the volume up to 2, and that's plenty loud for practicing. But the best surprise is just how clear and well-rounded the sound quality is. A strong, solid bass tone that doesn't break up, and doesn't distort (unless you turn up the Overdrive knob, of course). The only possible downside to consider is that this is bigger and heavier than most small practice amps in its price range, so take that into account if you're going to be carrying it around a lot.

                              Very loud for 30 watts. Super clean lows even when cranked. We use it for an electric cello, but have tried a 5 string bass through it. Does fine on the low b string.

                                  This is a terrific little amp for practicing and small gigs. For recording it is also very good either mic'ing it or using the headphone jack as an output into a board or a DAW setup. Some reviews stated there was no dedicated out for direct recording but that headphone out jack can be used for that purpose. You might want to get a cable that reduces from stereo to mono if it would make you feel better but it really doesn't matter. I play a Fender Jazz bass (passive pups) and Ibanez (active pickups) through this amp and they both sound terrific. It may be only 30 W but it will rattle the windows before you max out the volume.

                                      Bought this amp for home use, but I think with its 30 watts , it might be good to play out as well . Good sound and easy to use
