This is a fantastic amp. It is really loud for its size and particularly comes into its own at a distance. This is great for gigs in church halls or small/medium clubs. It would also probably be easily big enough for other places but i haven't yet gigged it anywhere bigger. The ultrabass (sub-harmonics proccessor) is really cool and the 'shape' function on chnnel 2 gives a great alternative sound. The footswitch is included in the price which is cool. It has every kind of connector imaginable (tuner out, pre-amp in, external speaker out, tape in, tape out and headphones). The whole thing is durable to the extreme and the price is fantastic.
Not much to dislike about this one, its heavy but then all bass amps are, erm... it could make you deaf since you'll probably end up playing too loud too often as its so much fun to use... DAMMIT, I JUST CAN'T FIND A BAD THING TO SAY ABOUT THIS AMP!!!
really tough, (i've dropped it a couple of times and it's kept on tickin'). The carpety covering is a dirt magent but stops unpleasant sound reflections. It has plastic bits to protect the corners. One word of warning though, if you're carrying out of the car etc. in the rain, it's got a speaker at one side and a port (hole) at the other so be careful, I nearly lost mine that way.
Excellent,excellent amp. So what if it isn't a famous brand, behringer are well respected in the home recording trade as a great manufacturer. BUY IT NOW you'll find nothing better for the money or probably quite a lot more, I guarantee it.
