    Has anyone on the board ever tried using one of these with a bass? I realise it's a guitar head, but I was just wondering how it worked with bass.

    It's also stereo, two power amps each driving 50 watts into 4 ohms. So you really need two cabinets to get much out of it.

    Ive used one as a pre many times......great overdrive! As a stand alone head it's pretty underpowered.......but fun for recording.
