    Pros
    • + excellent recording amp, flexible EQ
    Cons
    • - low-power
    Mine has the controls on the top with the handle, altho' it also has a slant bottom side, 25 watts.

    IMO, this is an excellent recording amp, particularly if you use pedals. I keep it a cuppla feet from my mix position, and typically mic it with a parallel DI, or a parallel feed from the mic (I usually use a GT Brick, and a VC3Q). It's quiet, loud enuff (I run it clean at about "4"), and can actually grind if you crank it. 3 EQ knobs give a lot of flexibility, and it's a nice size (mebbe 16"x16"x12", 25 lbs?). No DI output, but it does have a cans jack. BA108.

    Pros
    • + This is a great practice amp.
    Cons
    • - No DI out. This is not a gig amp.
    I got this amp for $99 bucks so my son would not mess with my GK rig. I've since repurposed it as a practice tool. With the amp in front of you with the speaker pointed at your head, it does a very good job of giving you a great bass sound at low volume.

    Don't expect to use this in a band setting. In fact, I wouldn't use this with an acoustic guitarist, but for practicing without shaking the house (or apartment complex) this is a great tool. The headphone jack also allows for completely silent play, if you need to go that route.

    I wish Ampeg had included a DI out, because it would be interesting to use this as a monitor and then feed the DI to the board (yes, it sounds that good). That would be asking too much though, right?

    Pros
    • + Aux in with separate volume control Clean Sound
    Cons
    • - None
    Playing an Ibanez 405 with upgraded Bartolini MK5's and Bartolini Pre-amp. I prefer the sound best in Passive mode but the Bass sounds great in both Passive or Active modes.
    The knobs feel firm and the amp as a whole feels durable.
    The amp is extremely quiet and has an incredible clean sound.
    I don't play this amp above a 2 or 3, but believe it could handle higher volumes easily.
