Hiwatt B40/12
Combo Lower transistor
Dlivre a power of 40 watts but not powerful trs
No effects loop.
qualisateur: 1 contour, 1 Bass, 1 Middle, 1 Trebble, a Presence.
A gain knob, a volume knob.
2 between a HIGH and one LOW
1 headphone and other WHO 4-8.


Bass combo easy to use.
I use a Squier spcial PB.
One can easily find the corect in 30min max.
At the manual I can not advise you because I bought a used quelq'un who had not kept


I play it with a Squier Special PB has a good sound, but quickly saturates trs if you increase too much. For group play it you sufirra not for me you have a drummer who played with the fingertips: D. Or you need a good sound system behind to return it. I use it to play rock, it is for rock, the slap pass quite well with. Get Connected ds channel High. I put trs little gain because it saturates in a row, a bottom edge, the lower the middles 5 8 5 Trebble the presence and 0. I was her only versatility but default is that it saturates quickly trs, surout with gain.


I have been using trs short time (one week). Before you buy this combo I try 2 Ashdown, a 15watts but to play in a band is too tight I try APRS 100 watts but the portfolio, there's more pfff nothing. I also tried an Ampeg BA-115 but the same, the price! so I pulled over the Hiwatt B40-12. With exprience I would do not have that choice! For starters it is but if you buy the portfolio rather the Ampeg BA-115.
