i found this great amp on ebay and got it for $180. brand new! i think it retails for about $299 so i didn't save that much, but the amp is worth every bit if not more.
for a 30 wat combo, this thing rocks. this is a solid very well made little practice amp. i say little, but the thing has to weigh close to 50 pounds. even though it is only 30 wats its 12' speaker is louder than some 65 wat combos i tried out. great aux input to plug in cd player or rhythm machines. and a tilt back leg to angle amp upward is great for practicing. this is by far the best practice amp i have come across yet. i'm not sure how it will stand up to a full band practice situation. but i really don't think it was made for that anyway.
i really can't think of anything bad about this amp other than it only has 3 level controls, 4 if you count the aux volume.
very, very solidly built. strong frame with felt covering and a metal speaker cover. could easily handle a small toddler climbimg on it(it has).
best little practice amp i have ever seen. i origanially bought it because it was a good deal for $180. but even the $299. retail price is a great deal for this little tank.
-Combo Low BLUE CAB 30 Warwick announced at a power of 30W RMS (but beware it is very far from other manufacturers 30W).
-In Connection level, one can dream better for an amp of this type and in this price range, since we find: 2 For among low (between an active and a passive between), a enters and exit effects loop, headphone output, line out, and very interesting, from a paramedic who can connect a CD player or mp3 for instance to work with pieces .dropoff window Interesting also that between grasp this has a volume potentiometer of its own and that mix the player volume with the volume of the amp ..
In sound now, I must say I t stupfait to "this amp to study", in fact the sound is really clear and made with the knob Azro and one can easily get any sound color, sound good mettalique has a sound all round and warm foie playing around with the 3 pots.
I'm not used the manual but it's relatively simple and sufficient air
Due to its versatility, it should have all type of music.
I play it with a Mayones Be4 which also has at its disposal a very wide range of sounds, well this amp faithfully restores me all this.
I had ssay ten amps before opting for it and Adi the first thing you notice is its size, it is still deep and wide and even with his hp 12 "it is hard to believe that this is a 30W amp.
It's a raise questions about the amps power etalonage, in fact it has largely as much puisssance some amps 60 / 80w I tst.
Intrssant and also rare find: a volume ranging from zero to twelve, the sound does not saturate until 10 or 11 and yet I sending her into the amp with electronics in bartolini of my bass.
I was looking primarily an amp to study at home with such a FUNCTIONALITIES between auxiliary, an effects loop and a very affordable price, and I also have a great sound.
The only default that I found was this combo is a light breath that means continuous but disappears when we lower the treble knob -2 .The problem is when you put raparait the main volume from 10 and above. but it sincerely leger breath becomes inaudible when there's really any background noise or that one is more than one meter of the amp. This really is to chipotter because it is not Gnant and CONSIDERING the price of this amp I think it does dampen anyone.
I had forgotten another small addition, there's a very practical system the back of the amp that can tilt and it avoids having the sound "in the feet" when the combo is pos ground and ca also reproduces better midrange / treble also.
A word also on the solidity of the amp, just everything exudes solidity of the pots to the box, everything seems very robust, AC is verifies its weight by 20 pounds all the same bb; )dropoff window
That is if you want a good cheap amp to work for you see rpter group in a quiet musqiue style Go ahead, for that price, with its 12 hp ", the sound and the power it exudes I think this is one of the best qualitprix report of the market.
I use the second version of the Blue Cab 30, the one with a 10 hp. "The old version was renamed Blue Cab 60 t.
It dlivre 30 watts, CONTRL offers simple but effective: three knobs to legalization (B / M / T) and an output volume. Point.
No fuss kind of compressor, wah or Octaver is plug and play.
Two entries: passive or active, depending on your bass.
It adjusts the equalizer and go up the output volume. And that's all.
By way of goodies, a headphone jack, a line out and effects loop.
A short walk can Leaflets the rear to tilt the combo.
It's simple: just an amp.
It amplifies without dnaturer.
The sound? this dpend of your game and your bass.
For me its j'apprcie Fidler.
The neutrality of BC30 is INTERESTED: the sound is typical depending on what you plug in there.
I play on a Neuser Crusade Signature 4-string, needless to say that a ring.
I have yet to test in pedals (I'm not a fan of effects) but I'm ending for a compressor for the slap.
Note that the very low Neuser out naturally and that the BC30 is able to return them.
It is small but heavy trs. The sound is the height of the weight of the craft.
Nine is the most expensive amp in its class: approximately 190 euros.
No effects, no gadget, you might think it is too expensive the other o offer lots of buttons. No, actually you pay 30 watts of quality.
I have tested dozens of combos, amps possd between 150 and 2000 euros, and I can assure you that this little 30 watt amp is really good.
You have a slightly lower premium (or top level), forget modlisations and onboard effects and build on the basic quality. That's what I did and I do not regret my choice.
Are we talking about THE FIRST version of the Blue Cab 30 is - say the MODEL which has exactly the same dimensions as the current Blue Cab 60, and thus an HP 12 " (the new MODEL as close to the former Blue Cab 20, much smaller and with a simple HP 10 ")
Here is the photo of the former MODEL (the one I'm going to talk):
- 30w amp transistors
- HP 12 "
- Between passive and active
- Effects loop
- Between RCA Stereo with volume CONTRL
- Headphone jack
- 3-band equalizer acute mdiums, serious
- Volume gnral
- On the back foot allowing it to be put in position inclinbr />
I would put 9 because in this price range can not do better (can be output from HP supplmentaire, and again ...)
Operation is ultra simplistic. One branch and it works. The rglages are quite effective, and the possibility to connect from one is extremely smart amp for such a study.
I play a little every style of music. The neutrality of this amp is its strong point. It is quite versatile despite a tendency to have low too blurry ...
The big strength is its power to a 30W hallucinating! Thank you for the bowl 12 "that can reproduce sound well enough to Manir Dfine, even when you push the volume back! You really have to push him into a corner so that it saturates.
In terms of volume restitution scabies see it surpasses many amps 60w or more!
I put my 8 taking into account the price range it belongs!
Overall, I am satisfied with this amp trs. Amp study as it is really perfect. Plenty powerful for use in private, it may also s'insrer carefree trio in a guitar / bass / percussionist ... or for acoustic jams.
Caution, however, to play with a battery that tape a little, even when it is too light ... But this is not its function! It will then consider the transplant via the line output on the sound system gnrale.
In short, a trs good deal if you get it into an opportunity
