A leather handle on top.
Comes with removable wheels.

No entry for an additional speaker, but it works in 4 ohm speaker, so this choice is fully explained. And then, 350 Watts into 4 ohms, this is enough for many scene.
It therefore lacks a tuner input, and handles on the sides would have been welcome.
To do this, and given the price of the machine, I do not the maximum.</span></span>

UTILIZATION

<span style="font-family: Verdana; color: black; font-size: 7.5pt; mso-fareast-font-family: 'Times New Roman'; mso-bidi-font-family: 'Times New Roman'; mso-ansi-language: FR; mso-fareast-language: FR; mso-bidi-language: AR-SA;">Very simple configuration: Here is the list of knobs: Gain, Bass, Mid, Treble, Volume,
Added to 2 switch: "Deep" and "Bright".
No need for manual, everything is very simple.
we get a very good sound, very quickly. It&#39;s simple, no need to search too long (but if you spend time, it can also greatly refine)
The EQ works well: each volume pot goes from 1 to 12. Knobs for bass and treble, the position is "Flat" on 3. For knob mediums, the position "flat" is 10.
So the EQ to cut a little bass and treble, but more push. otherwise on the midrange.
Frequencies have been well calibrated, which avoids some problems.
This amp is built for Pop, Rock, but also sounds more muffled Jazz Standard by cutting Frequency converter. For metal, I find it just yet, but I&#39;m working again. To see.
His power is great, especially his "circulation" is incredible. Gone are the days where "means the bass when it stops playing," now you&#39;re playing, you hear what you do!

To sum ​​up, great sound, very well balanced, versatile enough but not too much, and has a power and an excellent distribution.</span>

SOUNDS

It is ideally suited to some of my music styles (Rock, Pop.)

I use it with a Rickenbacker 4003, and a low Kah Dune Lawrence 003-05.
We get very good sound, whether with fingers or plectrum, rounded or drier. To do so saturated with the gain in depth (and to overload the lamp max), we need a bass with high output, active preferences. My "Rick" can not. For the metal to "Korn", it seems a bit tight.

It accepts far-reaching impact. And this amp is great with a fuzz, an overdrive or distortion. He brings a "grain" to our little pedal, and sounds really good.

On this point Fender did not lie, this amp is made for the Fuzz, or distos (overdrive or larger).

Nothing to complain about his level, we are in the high end!

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 15 days. It replaces my old hardware (TECH 21 landmark 300, baffle TC Electronic RS 210, Warwick W 115 Pro)
Of all the amps I could have (Aguilar Db 728, SWR Goliath III TECH 21 PSA 1.1) it is clear that the best of any mix, which "broadcasts" the best.
TECH 21 on my head, my settings were similar to that of a Fender Bassman, and that is why, seeing a 350-watt combo out, I had taken the step to get a config both simpler and more powerful, requiring 2 TECH 21 HP to run at 350 watts.
The 15 "has an enormous power, which is more than enough at any stage (unless you&#39;re playing at the Zenith, or he will take it back!)

One of its features is its response to effects pedals like overdrive / distortion / fuzz.
The fact that there is no output for additional speaker is not a problem except pure make nice on stage. That would still was more to get a nice "stack."

The big minus for me is the lack of grip on the sides, which does not favor the transport of the baffle, which fortunately is not heavy (but still quite large).

In addition, an input tuner was a bonus.

Excellent value for money, big power, great sound. Good quality workmanship at first sight.
