    I know it sounds awesome for synth effects and what not, but does it have a good clean sound? Or is that even possible? Lol it looks like a sweet head but I dont know if I could use that as my main head. It has so many features I feel like i need to put it in the FX loop!

    Anyone acutally own one? How is it?

    i've played the mo' bass recently, and yeah, it's got a good clean tone (sounds like SWR, y'know?). all those effects are easily switched on/off. it's no problem to get the clean sound. plus it has lots o' power...but it's pretty expensive.

    Some unlucky guys have had serious reliability issues with it. It isn't exactly built like a tank.
    But it looks cool, I must say.

    Yeah...I agree with Oyster!

    Do a search on Mo' Bass...you'll find that several people had unkind comments regarding it. Don't let those comments deter you, but let them serve as tools to make you aware of potential problems.

    As an alternative, if you really want the SWR sound, get a more basic SWR amp and add the effects you want. It'll give you more flexibility.
