UTILIZATION

* The configuration is simple?
* Gets it easy to sound good?
* The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
The config is very simple, you just read what is written ... (!!!)
Even a prick like me understand how to fix it in 5s.
The manual is clear, in French.
To get a good sound, better to avoid the user OctaveBass is frankly dégeu.


SOUNDS

* Will it fit your style of music?
* With what (s) guitar (s) / low (s) or effect (s) do you play?
* What kind of sound you get and with what settings ("crystalline", "fat ",....)?
* What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?
The 7 models ... uh sorry, 6 without the bass octave, can find a sound corresponding to different styles. Better still have an active EQ on the bass for more latitude. Mode SuperFlat suits me very well.


OVERALL OPINION

* For how long have you been using it?
* What thing do you like most/least about it?
* Did you try many other models before getting this one?
* What is your opinion about the value for the price?
* Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...
I just bought it this afternoon at Star's Music (Pigalle) and I was really skeptical about the bass ... until I try it!
It's amazing what it can own spit a lil something.
Well it sends wood without shake my bénouze playing an F, but still ...

The feature I like is its size and weight, certainly, 7kg at the end of a strap (included) is not nothing, but given the sound is not asking too much.
Because the niche of bass amps portable trèèèèèès is narrow, I have not tried others. However, I had a Laney RB1 (not portable) and 15w is squarely on the day and night!
Very good value for money, I do it again without hesitation that choice
