    I bouhgt one a few months ago & I've been VERY happy with it!!!

    My guitarist has an Ampeg VL1002 100W 1/2 stack & the Bassman does a great job.

    Have you added an extension speaker to it yet or is 350 watts suffice against a 100 watt guitar amp. I'm also curious as to how this amp handles the full 500 watt capacity. And I totally agree with you so far. Been playing this baby for a couple of hours now and the tone is absolutely incredible (though it is a bit colorful on a flat setting). But so far nice lows with a nasty edge! :)

    my bassman 60 isn't bad, but isn't good either. i'm not surprised that the higher-end models sound good, though.

    The one I have is an older. It dosen't have an output for an external speaker.

    To my understanding, I'm running 350W into the 4 ohm 210 & it surprizingly holds it's own against the 410 guiatr cab.

    I also notice that it seemed colored in the flat position. That's pretty much how I set it when I'm playing like & use the preamp on my bass for any minor adjustment.
