This sounds great, and it's loud. I pretty much plug into it with everything at noon and the tweeter off, adjust the EQ slightly to taste,set the master volume where I need it and go to town. It's pretty loud. The 130-odd watts it gets without an extension cabinet are not the shy, retiring watts that some amps get. I can keep up with a fairly loud band, no problem. I tilt it back using an amp rack so I can hear myself at shows, and I'm considering getting an extension cabinet. Sometimes it's hard to hear myself in close proximity, but it always fills the room, PA or no.
I'm not a huge fan of the brightness, contour, and vintage buttons. The vintage sounds overcompressed to me, and the contour scoops it too much. I'd rather just use the knobs. I sometimes play through a Keeley Bassist compressor or a Darkglass Vintage Microtubes if I want a grindier, more compressed sound, but my basses sound great plugged right in. It's a clean, full frequency sound, with good presence and no mush.
The great thing about this amp is that I now walk into the gig with my amp, my stand, my pedalboard and my bass, all in one trip.
