USE

Setup is simple. It plugs into faade, adjusting the gain and volume according to his desires and his fate!

Manual that discusses the function of each knob, between the output + prcautions job! All that to know is in there.
It gives a good sound quite easily. The well rounded sound great for slap slapping you get what you want!


SONORITS

This amp suits my style of music (Rock) in a semi-pro setting.
The appointment of power and good sound is Introduced!
Associated with a 4X10 Hartke, I could vary between a sound bourr round low vibrating the whole neighborhood a foil highlighting its a slap East games!

I use this amp with a Squier Precision Bass classic series and a pedal Bass Big Muff.
I really apprci the prcis DLivre sound this amp!

NOTICE GLOBAL

I use it for little prt 6 months.
I tried a head ct Mark bass sound that gave me enough prcis my taste.

I like the mouth of this head. It does not pokey like most heads Transistor!
It has its resemblance to the Ampeg SVT CL in giving it a charm supplmentaire ^^
One of the benefits that can stepfather ngligeable but so useful in some situations is the little space under the power supply for storing cables, docs etc ... (Useful in rp quickly to let it all hang out here and there)

One drawback is the weight (again and again) but this is quite MODR over a head while ^^ lamps.

The report qualitprix is ​​more than good. If the future I had to make this investment I do it again. Biensur a rest in a frame from beginner semi-pro.

It has an amp 300 W RMS with two speaker outputs, a preamp tube that serves only to "decorate" ... Brief standard config, all you need is already using a radio / CD to understand how to use that thing!

One gets the impression of having a "soft knee" in front of us! How many times I yelled: "But you sent me of his b *****!". The sound? so easy to obtain: a y'en (which is neutral for that matter!). For the rest, you have real brands!

SOUNDS

So for her? .. Easy to obtain: it connects and presto! So you could say "easy"! For the rest?! If you have a good bass, the sound is good, if it is a low entry level, you'll understand me! But this amp is intended for young, novice, etc.. In short, those starting out and want a first head (with the light so conspicuous!) Without breaking the bank ... He missed!

This amp is only useful for two things: it is nice it is true that the next vintage, the lamp behind a small window that's pretty ... According to the weight: it weighs like a dead donkey weighted with lead, it was an amp that one hesitates to move! So sometimes we say we will cancel the concert for fear of having this anvil up and down the seven-storey student from our room ... Simply put: you want a good head cheap, efficient, lighter? Take the VR Micro ampeg! It sounds a thousand times better, and the weight off that thing! When I received it and plugged (after wearing it on the walls I thought: given the weight it needs to send!) Well I plug it, and then I tell myself ... "Um, I had forgotten to plug a wire, or a button to switch?!" ... Short, one rikikiki ... I searched? Well no, everything was ok! Finally at the connections!

For sound, you should know that you really "push" knobs for juice! It's annoying fast! The feeling of not having underfoot bothers me terribly!
I have no favorite in this amp! Oh yes when I found someone to take it back ... I had to sell off a few weeks after the purchase because really after two concerts (one outdoors) I was bored, annoyed ... Sound "sucks" without fishing, tasteless ... In short, the sound you not want to have!

The only drawback is that if you just want to throw it out the window by dint of seeking the right sound you could seriously injure someone given the weight of the craft!
The preamp tube: a scam! it is aesthetic! More you push the gain, or volume, the lamp does not change! It's just a flashlight that illuminates a lamp "power" behind glass! This is not even the power tube that lights up! Scandal! See if you have the opportunity to your dealer ... Or I hate to think that it is the head that I had a worry ...
Sincerely opt for a class D amp that prevent you fart back and give you the power, dB less heavy!

OVERALL OPINION

I scratched a personal brand: Kustom. I do not want to hear about it! To get a head behind buy Ampeg Micro VR, I can say that I realized the difference between a small head well filled, and a large head and very heavy load ... To me this model is an error, a horror of bass amplification! There are two knobs on the front which are useless! I've looked ... As soon as we moved into one, it did lower the noise level, frequency and disappear so random?? ... So they stayed in the middle tjs! Therefore remained a 3-band equation (and yes as an active bass!) For an amp supposed "to do", it's very light!

What I liked:? The price? And even when using it because we say we paid dearly! the least: Ben this thing to be considered a 300 watt bass amp, and worse than some young people say that's true bass sound known! My Harley Benton 110-w buried "far" (in terms of sound, sound diffusion, feeling of power ...)!

The rating is final. It's tough but deserved! Maybe mine was a concern, but with hindsight it is part of the worst mistakes I made in choosing the material of low!
Flee ... Or assume!

Outstanding!!

In my case, I bought the combo Kustom FOR 200/115, ie a combo of 1x15 "200 watts RMS into 4 ohms but the amp is exactly the same as the head DE300 HD.
Head delivers 300 watts of course instead of 200 for my combo.
But since the combo is not yet included in the list of Kustom amps, I give you my opinion here.

So this is an amp with tube preamp (12AX7 Electro Harmonix 1) which delivers 200 watts RMS (or 300 per head).
The settings are very simple but very effective: a tube for the gain level tube preamp, an EQ with bass, mid and treble, 1 bass and 1 contour contour high. These two contours are very useful because they act precisely and premettent to custom tailor the sound of the amp...…

The settings are very simple but very effective: a tube for the gain level tube preamp, an EQ with bass, mid and treble, 1 bass and 1 contour contour high. These two contours are very useful because they act precisely and premettent to custom tailor the sound of the amp to the acoustics of the place where we play. For more information, see the website of Kustom.
Then there is the volume control.
There is an entry for active bass and a passive bass input.

At the rear, there is a connection to DI with pre and post EQ switch with the ability to send the console to the raw sound of the amp or sound with a simulation of the HP amp. There is obviously an effects loop, tuner out and a auxiliary output for HP. On the combo, this output turns off the signal sent to the HP but the combo to the head, there are two output jacks for speakers.

In combos, HP are Eminence. So it's quality that HP is also found in high-end Fender amps.

The knobs are of high quality, réglalges are accurate and effective, the components are also first choice and the construction is solid and flawless.

UTILIZATION

Configuration is very simple. The presentation and use is very vintage but incredibly effective! The manual is clear and precise.
And most surprising is that the beast SONNE serious !!!!!!
This gives a hell of his very easily, I was really amazed by the power, punch and its incredible that this little beast can spit!


SOUNDS

I bought this combo because I'm tired of carrying my body around triple stack and thus for small clubs or scenes averages, this combo is fine.
I played a hundred concerts a year with various groups, but mainly I play good solid rock and roll with a lot of classic rock cover. I need a big sound very big, warm and round but I also like that my sound is clear and well defined. I push so usually a little low and the treble a lot by digging mediums.

With this amp, I immediately got the warmth and roundness of the sound of a tube amp and the HP 15 "is also something to KKE.
In addition, it may be pushed to the max without fear of damage. The following HP property and high gain and volume, we get the typical crunchy sound of old tube amp. In short, a delight!

I play exclusively on Fender bass. A Jazz Bass Classic 70 and Classic 50 Precision. Good bass passive, although roots.



OVERALL OPINION

The combination of this amp with my bass is truly exceptional!
However, I have tested dozens and dozens of amps Ampeg SVT Classic through Trace Elliot or Ashdown or SWR and it is largely small Kustom comparison!!

Obviously, we must compare what is comparable to this game, I'm sure the Kustom is unbeatable in terms of value for money.
The Kustom Deep End Series can be compared to the series of MAG in Ashdwon example. Ashdown I know well and to have good quality home, he must pay the price. The new series is really disappointing MAG.
For the same price or even cheaper, Kustom provides material of excellent quality, a sound worthy of the greatest brands and a manufacturing quality impeccable.

In conclusion, for me, buying this amp was a shock véritbale.
For the price, I did not expect such a result to tt.
Kustom brand is not distributed everywhere, but if you have the opportunity to try this brand of stuff, go for it !!!!!! You're on your ass, guaranteed!!
A brand that deserves to be better known among us ...
