This amp combo just arrived today ($280 from Music 123). OMFG, it is even better than I'd hoped, and I had high expectations. Having played the models of Bassman just before this, I knew they were well designed, efficient, built well, and very fine sounding. Man, they've really perfected the art of packing a whole lotta punch into small packages these day. I couldn't believe my ears at first. I played it with the tweeter off so far (has three positions, full, off, -6db). The contour switch does wonders. Within seconds I had things dialed in just fine, and the plates were rattling! That's my test on if a bass amp is loud enough. This thing is very sweet, has all pro features, and is ultra-portable. The Fender-designed Eminence speaker must be something else--it sounds so far like this amp has better definition/articulation than my SWR/RE-cab setup. I'll post another review after I've gigged with it or made other use of it (it'll probably be my rehearsal and practice amp).
