Audiofanzine FR's review

Kustom KBA65
(Originally written by bassbaker/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
65-watt mosfet amp, Celestion 12" speaker, line out, FX loop... It has everything!


Ultra easy configuration: just plug and you already have a good sound!


I use it to practice with my 5-string Musicman and the sound is great! It lacks 15 or 20 watts for me to be able to rehearse with my band (we play heavy rock and my current drummer thinks he is King Kong!) but it's enough at the maximum output level. The effects provided are surprising!


I've owned it for one month and it's a great amp when it comes to transportation!!! If it gets stolen I will buy the 100-watt version! This amp is true to the sound of your bass.

65W combo with tansistors, Input jack: 1For 1basse +, Outputs: XLR + 1 1line another jack, speaker output and effect loop.
6-band equalizer (knobs)
Notch function
8 effect:
4 chorus, flanger 2, 1 slapback, an echo
1 hp 12 "Celestion


Very easy to use. Beautiful pallette of sounds.
I'm not a big fan of effects on low but they do their job well and are very easy to use on the other hand: only one effect at a time.
Very powerful 65W covers only a battery without any problems (maybe not metal style), but for rock no worries.


Fits any style of music.
I use it with an Ibanez SR 400.
My strings are brand new so my sound to a sacred attack but the hp 12 "encourages sound with still prefer the punch of a 15 hp" for such reggae.
I like the sound of juan nelson and there is no problem of sin without anything metal very groovy!


I use it for a few days but I played a lot of amps before.
We appreciate its power compared to 65W of departure.
Compact and not too heavy for once.
Matos good quality well finished.

Already mentioned above.
connectivity is very comprehensive.


The handling is downright easy. quickly found the sound that goes well. knob the "Notch" ule is given to a specific grain. Equalizer can refine enough properly.
Regarding the manual, there's three pages in English, but I must confess not to have to watch what it said.


For a pop rock sound anyway. Fan of metal or reggae is not the top.
This is a 65W but the sound is there anyway. In repeated and live in bars and is more than enough.
The effects are mainly there for the gadget. I use a personal multi-effects pedal and more. with my P-Bass S1 is nickel. plus he's still a lack saturation.


I have used it for 8 months and I am very happy. and then the report qulité price is really good. for 300 euros is not much power with this combo of this quality.
at the time of purchase I hesitated with a Fender Rumble 60. I reget not because the fender is probably less versatile.

So a combo mosfet (transistor "improved") of 65 watts, on a hill celestion speaker (hence good quality 12 inches. 6-band equalizer, leveling the gain, 8 adjustable digital effects (4 chorus, 2 flanger, 1 slapback, an echo)
There is a Knob "notch" which effectively Ganges sound, but I do not really know what he has is ...
There is a DI, which is convenient to register at'm easily without beaucop of material. Also, taking "CD in" to connect a walkman to train, or connect another instrument has low volume (for a course for example).
There is also an effects loop, and an output to connect the amp to another speaker. I do have never been used.


I bought without a manual, and I've never had need. It was my first amp, I do not know much at that time, but I can say that APRS always satisfies me more than 6 years. the sound is relatively warm for a transistor amp. I am using does not Gnrale effects, but those on offer by this amp enough for me when I needed.


I play metal with my groups, but this amp serves me dsormais at home to train. I play it with 2 bass: a Cort Artisan A4 (former model) in MightyMite team, and an ESP / LTD F-404 with EMG 35DC team. Evec the Cort, the sound is pretty clear that I can mess with Knob gain, but with LTD, I naturally gain office. The problem with this bass is that when I push the bass, the amp can saturate a fast, cel forces me to lower the output level of my bass, or Modra equalo the amplifier and bass in the bass frequencies. I do not know if this is normal or if I did not hurt my HP, because when I was young and stupid, I tend to fuck the low frequencies at the bottom ... After all, even when EMG 35DC are powerful. That said I have had this pb once reglacges amended, and does not my palette Reduces sound at all (low frequency boost on a 12 inch not in itself be very useful, and n is never good for any HP has long-term).

I'd say this amp meets quite well the sound of the bass. It is not particularly clear. I would say he has a good sound that lacks all, in that it is not a lamp.


I therefore used since June 2004, over 6 years now. I have not tried many other amps in this range, but I do not feel the need! It has a nice sound and versatile.
Personally, I find it just too much for group play, but depends on the cell material of other musicians if they have any Staks 100w lamp, there is not even thinking. If there is only rpeter where everyone plays on combo has will do. This is a good practice amp, or to concerts in small bars, but a good combo 65 watt transistor, nothing more. I recommend it to those who need an amp compact, reliable, playing in group mean volume.
I could settle for less to use than I am now, but I do not regret that choice, and I do not resell.
