    Thanks man! Looks good, sounds good. I didn't think of using it as a mixer like that...pretty slick.

    Hey thanks Dan!
    The red bass is an '81 Vantage Avenger that i bought 2 weeks ago for $250 CDN!!!!! and sounds great! :hyper: (my first ever pawn shop bass)
    As ofr the cables, it's a PJB BI-20 cable:

    and hopefully in Nov. there will be much more in the area of reviews on the OVRDRVN.COM pages @ YouTube.

    thanks again!

    Thinkin about getting one of these. I would use it as a headphone amp and as well as a pre/power amp when I hook it up to a cab for practice. Question: If it is run through an 8 ohm cab, would it be loud enough, or should it be run through a 4 ohm cab?

    the back says 8ohm but the instruction booklet says 4ohm ....


    hold on 'til NAMM.... :bag:

    there might be some fun stuff to go with the 'Buddy there :ninja:

    It does also say that the Buddy is great for using hi-end home audio speakers but ya, I'm assuming that 10watts is great for desktop practicing but that'd be about it... I shall pursue this thought Figgy, I'll try finding some speakers to hook it up to and get a vid up in the next little bit.

    Groovy. Main reason being I know that I am going to need a headphone amp as well as a practice amp in the future, and if this can do both, thatd be great.
  11. 250CND?!!!
    what a find congrats any more pics of it?

    that cable looks expensive............. really expensive:bag:
  12. Thanks for doing that... very informative. It seems like a nice piece of gear. I don't quite get the 10 watt power amp though. Seems relatively useless. I'd like to see a 40 watt+ version that could at least drive a cab at 'practice' volumes... or better yet an even smaller unit with the power amp removed.

    Cool review- thanks for putting it up. I love my Bass Buddy- it's the clean preamp in my mini stereo rig- great compressor as well.
