    No, this is not a typo. ;)

    Has anyone tried this amp yet? I'm looking for a small combo with some power and I heard that this one is a new offering...
     
  2. Hey there
    I had the pregenitor, the first model BB, for a good long while. Havn't tried the new one.
    It's not a powerhouse, has very little "throw," and sounds tinny for recording, but it's a nice amp nonetheless. More flexible than anything in its' class, I found.

    i have an elecric blue head and have been very satisfied with it
    it definitely gives the swr sound ... the only bummer is lack of bass and treble shelving controls
    it also does a pretty good job of powereing a couple of 8 ohm cabinets although it's not gonna be an ampeg by any means
     
  5. I picked one up today from a pawnshop. It looks brand new and I paid $200.00 cash for it. I got it to use in my bedroom to be able to practice quietly but efficiently.
