    There's some info out there on this amp for bass but I want to get some perspectives anyway because I'm in the position to pick one up for peanuts.

    I am recording in the studio soon and wanting to know if anyone knows how this would go. I use effects heavily (Boss ODB-3 and MXR Flanger) and play through a 4x10 and 1x15. Not sure just how much headroom one of these would have, but I'm thinking for studio use it would be alright. I don't mind overdriving it either. For just over $100 I reckon it would be worth it.

    Any opinions would be useful.

    A good deal at 100 bucks but it's still just 50 watts. I've played bass through a friends MIG50 through an Avatar B410 NEO I owned and there was just no headroom. 50 watts just isn't enough power. MIG50 is very much like a 50 watt Marshall, breaks up nicely for guitar but sounds not so good for bass.

    However there's a lot of guitarists out there who would easily pay 250 to 300 for a MIG50. I'd buy it and turn it for a profit.
  3. Hi.

    One hell of a deal for $100 if You ask me.

    Snag it and sell it if it doesn't do it for You.
