Tube preamp, amp Mosfet.
2 * 450w in 4ohm, if I'm not mistaken, the doc is available on the web
Specific level I will not descend into more detail because everything is available on the web.


However, playing with this amp is a bit of dream, in my opinion ... definition, settings, bass, the sound required whatever the frequency, the dynamics ... this amp is definitely a pro!

The doc gives some examples of settings known bassists enough ... is exactly that ...

And make your own sound is quite 'easy' if indeed we know what we like / want ...

Plethora of settings for all types of sounds really ... incredible definition.


Say it suits my style of music will not advance to much (metal / prog) ... it's so subjective and personal ... but given the possible settings, I can not see how style it would not fit ...

Output I have two 4 * 10 to ampeg, SWR supported by a cube (just a bit more serious (I have a Moog Taurus III) wood ... it sends the pants fall to the ankles!

As I have an upstream and a VB99 GR55 (yes, I play a little, I am especially pleased) that I have a 6 string Ibanez recent, even if it's not a signature model ... this is amazing ...


I use it for 2 years now I have a Hartke HA2500 and I played long ago on a head HIWATT ...

... this is not the place, but I have a problem, however ... when I use it in stereo speakers and whatever the assembly to change the impedance, I'm cracking 'electric' in stereo making its use impossible (after 10 minutes approx.) ... I brought home 2 'repairers' Place de Lyon ... nothing, nada, no nothing, nothing ... a hair balls at this rate ...
I continue my research ... on the web, nothing ... I come down to a faulty capacitor, but my knowledge stops fast enough ...

The fact remains that this is a powerhouse, with dynamics and control possibilities of crazy! ... so do it again ... I would do!
