Love the cleaness of sound and the second channel. It can boom out the neighborhood at half volume : )

The ultrabass funtion doesn't seem to have much of any effect on the sound at all, I use an Ibanez five string fretless. Most of all when I recieved this amp when I'd play high notes there would be a rattling sound coming from within the head when turned up less than half way. I don't know if this was just this unit or if it could be a design flaw. I got the run around from behringer saying that if they couldn't find the problem they'd just send it back and charge me the massive costs in shipping and inspection fees. With this being a problem when playing high notes at loud volumes and only intermittantly I didn't want to take the risk of them plugging it in once to check it out and not hear the problem and inadvertantly give me a royal shafting... So I returned it and upgraded to a different more dependable brand. I've also heard that people have had fuse problems with the amp. I've also heard other possible problems that seemed rather aesthetic and trivial to which I've taken with a grain of salt and therefore will not even mention here.

Construction is nice but I've heard of peoples knobs breaking off during moves and jacks breaking out when cords have been stepped on. I liked the wedge shape feature. Quality...well like i stated above, you may get lucky and get one that you don't ever have a problem with, but as for me... I did and have heard of others who have as well and I want the amp I buy to last for more than just a year or two.

Overall for the purposes of a nice looking clean sounding amp it is pretty good supposing you don't have to do much gigging and don't have an initial problem like I did. My biggest fear in keeping the thing was that if there was something loose in there, it would have only gotten looser in time and once you open the thing up the warranty is void. Amps vibrate...bass amps really vibrate, and I want something that seems to be of sound construction from the start. Otherwise the features are a nice plus, but sound quality is held in much higher regard in my book than any little icing slapped on the cake. Good luck and I hope this is useful.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you investigate into other reviews than just mine and the other one on this amp on this site before you make your decision, hell the other guy, apparently, didn't even know how to spell properly and or doesn't know grammar. Either way that in and of itself should tell you something. If you look into other review sites you will find others that share my sentiment.
