coming from the world of steel guitar where these (now quasi-vintage) compact stereo radio / amps are secret tone weapons and having just gotten another recently for general music listening I'm curious if these can handle some intimate vol. bass fun? my old one handled the low B on an 8 string steel just fine. of course I have mine to try out but being ensconced in it's happy place and dragging it all back out to answer my own question would be a ...drag. this one is not the original model which had sliders for vol. / treble / bass but it does what I bought it for, however, if the idea is a winner I'll get an earlier issue again just for guitar / bass use, and if there are positives maybe this thread can help discover more aspects of it's hopeful wonders. anybody given it a shot?
