    I don't think there is any for bass. You can try that little Pignose guitar amp and keep the volume low.

    Just use the guitar ones if that's what you want. There's no need to make a special "bass" unit, since the speakers are so small and can't reproduce any low end anyway . . .

    yea these guys are right. I have that marshall microstack, which i bought several years ago. I tryed it with bass. You can use it, but it sounds crappy and distorts at higher volume. especially with overdrive (duh).

    NOTE - The headphones that come with these are terrible. Toss them and get a good set of cans. http://www.headphone.com is an excellent reference for what's good and what isn't.

    I have one similar to these that's even smaller (can't remember the name) and ran about $29. These are all headphones only, for which I use Sennhieser PX100's. They are WONDERFUL for practicing / playing.

    I carry mine in my case and warm up with it when the sound guys are getting everything / everyone hooked up.

    Those are cool and I own a Pocket Rock-It but I think he wanted an actual amp with a speaker.
