Bought it new at Alto in Middletown, NY read reviews online, sound is AWESOME. combo amps have come very far in recent years. It has the ampeg tone, is punchy and perfect for a small combo, without sacrificing quality. I needed this for my guitar room, I no longer have stacks since I don't gig for the time being, and my old combo speaker blew. We are redoing the room and I wanted something that sounded good, but didn't take up tons of space. This is one of the best $100 I spent in bass gear in the last 10 years, I am that happy with it.
