    Picked it up from GC. Decent price as they don’t seem to be all over the place. In great shape, but needs wheels. for my needs, I’m very happy

    Diamond Blue Rocket Bass.

    Straight forward pre and only line out
    No effect loop.
    Really couldn't ask for much more.

    Too much hip thrust
    One of my favorite amps with the sponginess thing going on. If they could make a 300-800w version it would be phenomenal.

    Know what yah mean. This tone control on the B100 has found it's way into more powerful Ampegs. I think it's a combination of the pre and very simple BJT amplifier. That unique sponge starts losing its magic past the 200 watt mark. Ampeg and few others went with more mosfet amps past the 100 watt mark.
    But yes there is a few 150 to 200 watt Earlier heads that get that feeling.
    150H , B2RE few more I can't think of. More eq and common features. But the 100R will always have it's charm.
