I bought it at r2musical off the specials page. Let me say Rawn was very cool to deal with. I was looking to buy the preamp he stil has up there and get a power amp. I would've use the speakers I already have. The problem is I'm not in a gigging band right now, and most stuff these days is going to be in someone's basement. Buying the preamp, I'd still have to carry a 65 lb cabinet around. The Drome 12 is 38 lbs. First of all, this sounds almost as big as my SWR WM 300 & Eden 2x10XLT. It's quiet, and has a very powerful EQ. The bass response is really good for something this size. The character (tube simulator) button sounds pretty good. Haven't tried the DI yet, so I don't know what's up with that. The effects loop is really good (it's stereo) haven't tried the Bass eraser stuff yet either. I usually plug my Status Classic S-2 in there, and it has a really good slap tone. Fingerstyle is pretty cool as well. It sounds good with my Dean (passive) bass. The verdict is this thing kicks ass. It's small, light, loud, and sounds really good. I don't expect to use this at a gig without PA support, or go toe to toe with a loud band. But for practice, and low volume gigs, it rocks. btw.. anyone try out the EBS (hd)TD 650 ? Rawn has one listed and I was thinking about buying one. It's $1500, which is what one would pay new for a SM900 (I think).
