    I've had mine for a little over 2 years. Can't say that I drive it hard ... (1) 4hr. gig or rehearsal/week, plus thirty to sixty min. daily. No problems thus far. I like it alot.

    I got a B2R to ease the wear-and-tear on my Mesa Bass 400 tube amp, and I think it's one of the best amp values for the money (I paid $489). I use it with an SWR SOB 1-15 and Goliath Jr.III 2-10 and it's plenty loud for all the indoor shows I've played. I like the tone of the amp, the controls are really versatile, and the 5-year warranty is hard to beat. The only downside is that the fan is really noisy, there's no ground lift on the XLR, and it's larger than it needs to be (15" deep). All in all, I like it a lot better than the Peavey, G-K and Carvin amps I had before.
