    What is this? I just ran across one the other day, and was confused. How do these sound? How do they play? The one I saw was 50w. Is that enough?

    Is this a real bass amp, or is it another bass amp that sounds better for guitar than a bass? I love the sound of the JCM 800 for guitar, so I was both excited and confused when I saw this amp.

    Someone please tell me about it. Thanks

    IME, marshall should stick to making the worlds best guitar amps and leave the bass amps to the other companies! Like Eden, SWR, Ampeg etc.
