    "Good small amp"
    Pros - Lightweight
    Cons - OK tone, the TonePrint feature wasn't all that useful
    Nice smaller amp in a decent form factor. Lightweight, can carry with one hand down a set of stairs easily. Volume good for rehearsal or small club. TonePrint feature didn't seem to work properly.

    Pros - Responsive and sensitive EQ, great loaded compressor, loud
    Cons - None
    I've been using this amp 4-6 days a week for over 2 years. I bought it as practice combo which later on was promoted to my outdoor gig amp. Great sound, super light and rigid. I spilled all kinds of liquids on it and still it performs great in 100F down to 38F weather. Greats sounding out which I recorded hundreds times. Highly recommended.

    Pros - Light weight, looks good, GREAT additional features.
    Cons - A bit muddy tone, lack of headroom, EQ hard to get used to.
    Got this combo secondhand, not much used and in great condition. Got warned from seller that it has "chinese 250W", didn't really understand what he meant until I bought it to a loud rehersal.
    This combo just couldn't keep up. With gain set properly (up until clip light comes on, than back down a little) and even EQ flat, amp would cut-out for a few seconds with master set on 6.
    Combo sounds OK when master is set on 4 or lower, a bit muddy but OK, EQ is unusual and takes a little to get used to, but works. Seems to me it was adapted for Jazz type of bass.
    Features are GREAT! Tuner is very good and gig-worthy, and 2xTonePrint effects are future! Good job TC, keep working.
    All in all, I could recomend this combo to home and small coffeshop musician - if they dig vintage-sounding equipment. Anything louder than that, even loud rehersal, and this combo won't cut it.

    I have actually 2 BG250-115 combos.

    I simply love them.
    Awesome value for the actual product.
    It can easily feed a place with about 400/500 people with lots of quality bass.
    I definitely recommend it.

    Cons - Cheaply built, Pricey
    The amp has a lot of features. None of which I will ever use. Blue Tooth, Tone Prints and USB connections are no features I will ever use, but I guess they are nice. The 250w amp gives a good response even with my 5 string. The tuner works well and is a great additional feature. The Tolex is super thin and tears very easily. The overall weight is super light and very nice in that regard. Bass Mid and Treble controls are easy to read and simple to work out.

    I'm a big fan of this one! a ton of bang for the buck! 12-inch speakers RULE!!!

    I got the BG250-208 and I'm very pleased. It's obviously not very loud by itself but it can handle an additional 8 ohm speaker, or you can easily disconnect the internal speakers in favour of any 4 ohm speaker configuration. With that it's loud enough. I actually use some of the tone prints, like the multi band compressor. Also I like the pre/post EQ line out and the 11 Kg weight. Very quiet fan so it's very suitable for bedroom rehersal.
