Pros - Light weight.
Cons - Main volume changes the Direct Out volume.
Take your local gear snob, blindfold him ('cause, c'mon--it's a 'him'), and stand him in front of this thing and let him hear it. Then, have him extend the pinky of his right hand and hang this mini tone monster off it. Then drop the mic and pick up all the gear you needed for the show and walk out with it in one trip.
Smiles all around with this unit. I've played for 5 people and 5,000 with it. No problems whatsoever. Works for BG and DB. Never a hiccup. 34.5 pounds of good time low end. You might want more than this will deliver, but you don't need it.
Pros - Very light weight and sounds good set "flat". To me it sounds better than most of the other 115 combo amps out there.
Cons - Though the low E seems a little weak to me, possibly due to the limitations of the stock speaker..
I was using the much heavier Ampeg ba115 for lower volume gigs and this Fender is louder and MUCH lighter and seems to have a better over all sound. I also favored it over the Markbass JB PS model that I returned, which sounded great in the store, but I could not seem to get a tone I liked on the gig without lots of fiddling. This front ported Fender is just so easy to dial in. Good solid bargain and has been very dependable so far. I would like to try it with a 4 ohm speaker, just to see how much extra head room it might have. better over all than most of the other 115 combo amps out there with similar specs. I have not used it live with a second speaker cab yet because when testing that setup, I found (no big surprise here) that it didn't hold up against a 500 watt Eden or Markbass head with two cabs. So, it's not going to be my first choice for loud (outdoor) shows, even with an additional speaker, but for the smaller jobs, it's just fine. I'm sure an additional cab would help expand it's range some and if you have PA support and your band isn't super loud, it should be fine just as it sits. I got a cover for mine and that will help it retain it's good looks.
Cons - For the price, none really. The only way you are going to get better is to pay more.
This amp has a good sound, with several noticeable differences among the settings. There are Bright, Vintage, and Contour. You can combine them if needed. It has an overdrive. The Bright with Contour works really well for my Epiphone Viola bass, with the Vintage being the best for my P bass.
Very, very easy to move and carry. Half the weight of my 100 watt 15" combo I traded in.
It has an XLR out that I've used to go into a PA. Seems to work well.
It has enough volume to be heard well playing with a drummer, two guitarists using 100watts 2X12s, 3 mics.
$300 for a floor unit. Traded a wah pedal as well.
