I bought this from Musicians Friend for $160, but it had free shipping which saved me about $33.

This thing is LOUD. For being only 60 watts RMS, I was REALLY surprised at how much this thing can put out. I play it at volume 4 (otherwise my parents complain)but it handles my 5 string very well. I really like the Shape feature, too. It adds a sort of compressor sound to it, and it can go from very punchy, treble punk style to really bassy and full. This thing shakes my house, too. I'd recommend it to anyone.

I play a 5 string, and at higher volumes, it kind of lets up on the very low frequencies, for example: if I've got the shape on 10 (out of 12), it'll give me a very solid bass sound. It's awesome on the top 4 strings, but if you play the 5th (low B)open, it's not at the same decibel level as the others, if that makes sense. I'm not sure if this is normal with a 5 string, but that's how it is. Also, if you have the shape up past 10, you lose your treble a good bit, but if you like a lot of bass sound, and like to feel it, not hear it, this is your amp.

The construction is pretty nice. This is a hefty sucker. When I got it, I didn't expect it to be as heavy as it is. The speaker can handle a good bit (it's rated at 100W RMS) so don't worry about it blowing out or anything. The Tolex covering (or whatever it is) is nice, too. The circuits seem to be well-made, too. The whole thing doesn't overheat, which I've had trouble with in the past (Ampeg 2x10). Very well made.

This amp, for the price, is AWESOME. It's loud, sturdy, flexible, and portable. If you're looking for a small gig amp that won't let you down, this is the one for you. Compared to my friend's Carvin 8x10 stack, it's not loud or anything, but that's hardly fair to compare it to a stack. I'd say that if you put this next to an SWR LA-15, this thing would kick its ASS. The LA-15 has only got the wattage on it, which this baby can easy catch up to. Overall, this is a very well-made amp that I'm gonna be hanging onto.
