    I know PJB stuff is well-built, but his larger offerings don't
    offer a price/tone-volume or price/weight ratio I like.
    However, this puppy doesn't seem to have any real competition (a quality practice combo under 10 lbs that's small enough to sit on a desk or drop in my suitcase for a trip).

    My question is whether at low volume for practice or to accompany acoustic guitar the low frequencies and "thickness" (for lack of a better word) are satisfying.
    I assume it sounds clean without any grit, but does it sound like "bass" (I play 5-string only)?

    I have one on my desk.

    It sounds fantastic, but it's not loud.

    It's probably louder than most would expect (for such a small box) & can definitely hit the lows. The back is a passive radiator - so get it near a wall for some extension...

    My reasoning was to have a practice amp on my desk - that looks & sounds good... It is a great practice amp, and might work in an acoustic setting - but there ain't much headroom...

    It definitely sounds like a bass amp.

    If you're near Montreal, Moog Audio might have one on the floor to demo...

    Cool, thanks. I really wanna know if it can hang with 1 or 2 acoustic guitars.

    Sub'd! I might go try one of these out. There's a dealer in my area. I'll post here if I do.
