Tell me about them? All of them..
Sorry but someone had to do it:
One millionth ( 10-6 ) of an ampere, abbreviated as µA
Hmm. Well, they're all small and lightweight.
Small unit of current flow as dincz pointed out.
Micro even wouldn't you say?
sensible answer maybe
Orange bass terror 500,it,s small,light and LOUD
haha.. Ok. Stupid question. Sorry.. Have not shopped for a new amp in 12 years.
Checked out the GK MB-800 but I didn't like it. Also the GB 9.0, which I liked, but not enough to buy it. Aguilar Tone Hammer 500 (which I seem to like) but it may not be enough power.
3 lbs 12 oz
The Ashdown Little Giant seems pretty cool.
One thing I am noticing from all the demo's that I have seen and heard is that these little amps really lack that huge bottom phat floppy big wet one bottom end. Most demo's are guys with crappy sounding basses, no tone, slap monsters and a ton of fret noise. IMHO
That is the trouble with the demos, everyone seems to want them to sound the same way.
If you are looking for huge loose bottom end in a micro, good luck.
Ampeg Pro 7 is sounding pretty nice.
Streamliner 900 ?
See this is what I was looking for. Do micro's just not have it?
Do micros not have huge line frequency power transformers, output tubes and output transformers, no they don't they are micros They can try to emulate any or all of the characteristics they provide depending on the designers end goals. They are meant to replace the big heavy amps though, with that there will be trade offs that some may not appreciate.
So, thoughts on the SVT 7 Pro? It seems to be one of the "larger" of the small amps. I checked into so many I can't remember anymore. Anyway, I kind of like the tone from the 7 pro. They are going for something about $500 used, but sell quickly. Seems to be a good thing. Other than that, I kind of liked the Ashdown Little Giant 1000 as well.
IMO Ashdown or Aguilar might be a better fit for your tone goals?
Aren't those 2 full rack spaces?
Mesa walkabout....... end of tone search I promise
Yeah, you could say so.
Hmm, yeah that's not a micro amp.
