Might be a bit of a late "reply", but it may be useful to others eventually?
I just got one, only had a moment to plug it in, and it' s pretty loud amplified. Even with the three EQ knobs in the middle detent, and a weak battery (well that's what the warning light in the preamp says anyways), it's as loud as, or louder than any of my electrics, and I've got quite a few, and some really powerful ones (couple of Matsumokus, for instance).
Pretty good sound as well, as I said I only had a moment with it, so I can't yet write an in-depth review, but the amplified sound impressed me, it has a lot of "depth" to my ears.
But I have to confess this is my first electro-acoustic bass, so I really can't compare.
Others, with more trained ears, might think differently.
For what it's worth...
