This is not a low volume practice amp, this is my gigging amp! 20 Watts all tube, loud, clean, tubey bass. This thing pushes low end bigger than my V4 did at 1/5th of the wattage, compared through the same cab. And it is LOUD! My apartment starts shaking at 9 o'clock. The upstairs neighbors start banging on their floor at nine o'clock because I'm vibrating their place too. Beyond that it's just an earthquake. Clips are done with a Fender Mustang Bass modified with a Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounder Precision pickup. Mustang -> Cable -> 2061X -> Ashdown ABM115 -> Shure SM57. This first clip is some uncharacteristically for me lightly played pickstyle: http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page_songInfo.cfm?bandID=889952&songID=9017985 The second clip is palm muted pickstyle: http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page_songInfo.cfm?bandID=889952&songID=9017996 For the last clip I bridged the two channels (Lead and Bass) and turned up the Lead Channel just a tad for just a bit of grind. This clip sounds anemic in comparison to the others because I didn't take the time to dial in a good balance between the two channels. Oh well: http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page_songInfo.cfm?bandID=889952&songID=9017999 I've owned a lot of pedals geared towards copping the light grind you get from a tube amp like this, but in person none of them have come close. Seriously, the kit for this amp is somewhere around $850, and you can get the Ceriatone clone, prebuilt I believe, for $500. Marshall still makes these in their handwired series for $1850 as well. More clips to come.
