-1 Passive input
-1 Input active or passive (it is questionable usefulness of the passive input only)
-1 Output to another HP in 8 ohm
-1 Effects loop
-1 Tuner output
Among the pots:
- Setting and gain control + low frequency (all in 3 pots)
- Treble + control gain and frequency (all in 3 pots too)
- A button to enable or disable compression
- A button "limit defeat"
- A horn button to activate or not the tweeter
The HP is a 15-inch with a switchable tweeter.
The amp is solid state power is 175 W.
The configuration is not very complicated, I got no manual and I'm always out.
I have long played on a bass aria pro II and I must say that the result in terms of sound quality never really made happy (for lack of means I'm satisfied). Very suspicious of the quality of the bass, I bought a bass Musicman Bongo 5-string with which I could truly realize the limitations of this amp.
First its a relatively round and now unfortunately I'm quite disappointed by its performance in the bass, despite the presence of HP 15-inch, low saturated quickly notament the use of the string if (in fact I ' have reduced the use of the amplifier to about 20% of its total power max).
In the acute no problem there has potato slap in notament can even add activating the tweeter, only flaw on it: it hums slightly (I bani live sound engineer for the systematic application " What's that noise? ")
The equalizer when to him is not really effective it scans a spectrum ranging from 100 Hz to 4 kHz a gain adjustment up and down can focus on the two frequencies (one can easily find something better on another amp).
Compression and "limit defeat" is a much less efficient compared to the equalizer, in short ...
I use it for almost five years, he never let go despite a sometimes very severe use (fully several hours). Among the good points I would note its robustness and its price (420 Euros bought new) and the possibility of using it as a return because it has a pan for 45 ° tilt. Among the bad sound quality that is not exactly linear over the frequency spectrum, weight (but hey this is the case of many amps).
So, I would not recommend users to 5-string bass with 4 strings is doing pretty well, the price / quality ratio seems reasonable without necessarily being a good deal. With experience I will maybe not the same choice as it must surely be better for the same price.

They give your dja ... 175W transistor amp .... short!
9, so as not to 10 ...
I got no instructions, using simple but effective. We quickly understand how it works. EQs are really tural impact on a sound, switchable tweeter is especially nice, has also noted the 'Enhance' or 'compressor' which provides a fat a wish, to practice with the Rock a big R. Good power, it's a transistor amp, 175W will serve you well to be heard during rehearsals.
Note also the pan once very useful for playing along well, and may also have dual use back, if the amp is not used ...
9 because nothing is marked blame him!
Amp very versatile, at ease in all styles.
A rpondant, and easily adjustable thanks to the EQ, used with several low, it suits me very well for use 'repeat + concert "that I did!
I put 8 because it is a transistor ....
Used for 2 years, it satisfies me, I tried 2 other 3 amp in the same price range, I do it again the same choice without hsiter!!
A great amp is a reasonable price ...
