Is Samson a good brand for bass stuff?

    I know Hartke is one of the brands Samson markets, but I'm wondering about things made specifically under the Samson name.

    I have a chance to pick up a Samson KM-140 for around $200. It's a multipurpose amp with 4 channels and 2 XLR inputs. I think it would work well, as I intend to also play guitar and sing through it.

    I guess this thread has two questions, then: What's the general opinion of Samson gear and what, if anything, do people know about this amp?

    Here's a pic:
