Roland DB-500
DSP preamp transistor amp
160w hp and no output because the receiver is set for internal hp
apart from that full connection
simul lamp and lamp distortion, compressor gain volume simul HP15 "
equa severe acute parametric medium
Digital chorus, 2 memories of adjustment


Very simple amp to use
very effective SETTINGS


The sound is just at the top
the amp is very neutral (it upset some in), but it makes you terribly low value and whether it is good at any volume
hp are superb (customized eminence in the Fostex severe and acute compression)
the lower medium seriously is somewhat round and the medium-high timbre is beautiful
this is not a quick, dry sound, it's a little round and very stamped (like Ampeg more versatile)


I have it for 5 years
I have never managed to replace it as qualities
ideal for any style bass
The only complaint is the weight a little matured and no lateral handles
I have a small Markbass for small gigs but after trying qq Markbass, that Roland is more musical

Roland DB-500
I am the happy owner of this great amp that I bought for my little 15 watt succder. I have no great exprience to compare against other existing amplifiers on the market but frankly I do not blame him. Thanks FFF's electronic amplification of Roland, one can simulate three types of amps: solid state tube 'or' tube drive 'and the Difference of sound is flagrantre. Power level, ps problem to switch to a battery or fender dchanes.
Cpncernant his other more, we can see three buttons SETTING THE amplification: "Gain" "Volume" and "Compression". Rglage of "Low" "mdiums" and "Aiges" and especially the SETTING THE frquence of mdiums. A button "Shape" to simulate a woofer larger size, a D-Chorus ....
Login on the possibilities of sound.
Very practical: two memory buttons + select a manual to easily record their rglages prfrs (optional cmomande the pedals possible)


Simple configuration, big sound clear, vibrant and punchy saturated ..... A great amp for a hand with the advantage of low weight.


I play it with a Godin bass. nothing wrong.


I remake that choice without a doubt, at least with regard to the part rptition. For scne, I can not talk because I have not the chance to share my passion as a group. May be the power it would be a fair bit (though I'm not sr, but must try to find vien default .....)

Roland DB-500
Awesome power for size.
Able to mimic an amplifier or transistor lamps.
Connectivity complte.
Two effects: compressor and chorus, that fill out their office.


Easy to configure.
Its easy to find and clear manual.


Can give everything: potatoes, precision, grain ... except possibly be sounds and soft felt.
A high volume, the sound quality is prserve.
The sound is not related to its size (it sounds like a big +).
However, it lacks that little extra that makes indfinissable that I prfre other amps in some occasions. Vritable lack of heat?


I have a year and I used to scne. He has impressive power for its size. You can cover a group of nerve outdoors while keeping the volume below the elbow. I do not put him 10/10 because, DPIT its great range of sounds, he can not reproduce or Ampeg Ashdown some of my knowledge. A BMOL also gnrent effects that really too much background noise.
