Yamaha BS 150
150W amp, 15 pcs HP
Tweeter dbrayable or attenuated by-12dB
Between variable gain, effects loop, headphone jack, Line Out Symtrique XLR output for tuner.

A compressor / limiter is Intgr amplifier with variable compression. A SETTING THE contour to round to the contrary or more aggessif sound. A qualizer 4 bands.

Trs useful, the push button "mute", which avoids on stage to hear the noise when no dsagrables Thurs Note also that the cooling of the amp is passive, perfectly silent. Matrise The sound is by appointment, between the jack as too quiet


The sound is completely configurable with few buttons. Saturation possible choices rglant gain. This amp is extremely versatile and prcis!. The compressor is efficient trs. The Ractive HP makes a dynamic amp trs.
No need for manual, everything is clear!


Whether any style (and therefore perfect for studio taken) he found full scope in Funck and fusion. Especially for the slap! But the rocker is perfect base, as in jazzist or Varita. With its configurable tweeter, the same metal will not be outdone.
A high power in extreme low Legre a saturation can be heard!
This is not a default forcment but j'enlve point for this because it's a transistor amp.
All is well equilibrated. For my part I recorded in the studio with various styles: blues, rock and Funck and everything goes!
On the website Cinquieme Empreinte (http://www.cinquieme-empreinte.com/) you will find tracks recorded with this amp.


I use the amp for 5 years, and in keeping it.
I t trs enjoyable surprised by the stability and balance of sound and versatile. Finally an amp that folds to play the bass, not the other way ... too often.

In BPS, on small and medium scnes it will be widely effective, and perfect in the studio.

Ngatif one point, his lack of power for large scnes (supplmentaire will return ncessaire) but at a price of 650 Euros when I bought it can not have an amp and an ultra powerful equilibrated its super versatile, dynamic. I have not spoken, but the carpet covering gives an impression of .... solid and well made. After 5 years of use, the knobs do not crack!
Another problem ... amp is a trs rare, but the few owner of this amp does not give up easily.

All is said below, nothing to add. A comprehensive and practical combo amp.
EDIT: I would add that it is coated with a beautiful carpet, 4 nice big rubber feet, and icing on the cake is not vertical. The faade an angle so that the sound rises, very practical so I often see people calibrate their amps to give the angle the faade. I do not understand is why all amps are not made like this one of the cot l.


The configuration-is it simple?

-The manual is clear and sufficient?
I have not, however, why, everything is clear and empty.

-Gets it easy to sound good?
Yes, easily. The sound is prcise, enjoyable, and modular (tweeter disengaged, 4 knobs for EQ, a contour efficient compressor with LED also effective when it activates.
The gain also led to his prvenir any saturation. So it's a breeze.


-Is it your style of music?
Yes, in fact it is versatile trs. Rock, reggae, ska, pop, Maloya, amp bass drum (with a microphone troubleshooting TB BD300), Rock 'n' roll, jazz, and this with low frtte passive, active, electro-acoustic fretless, and even a Fender Ashbory (baby bass strings silicones).

-What kind of sound you get and with what rglages ("crystalline", "bold ",....)?
With or without tweter, according to the report you want, you can get a rev range of sounds so DIFFERENT that there will always probably "his Son".

-With what (s) guitar (s) / low (s) or effect (s) do you play?
Passive Stagg pourrave (and makes good!), Ibanez neck strait active electro-acoustic fretless Kort, Fender type silicone or polyurethane Ashbory strings.

-What are the sounds you prfrez, you dtest?
Reproach, I love the precision gnrale the rponse IMMEDIATE and warmth and deep bass returns. RPET or small sized concert, I am always happy and in all styles. As said below humming a little saturated happens if you stick all ranges of low back or if we peak-clipper gain constant.


-How long have you use it?
7 years and 3 times per week on average + concerts now.

-Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
This is my first, the store seemed to have been for ages, he soldiers -50%, I give it a go, what well I can!

-What is the particular feature you like best and least?
+ Tuner output with mute button (to agree silently on scne)
+ Powerful and deep, versatile.
+ Wide range of sounds, very easy job.
+ Keep the road, but he drools flchit not (it runs from 7 to 9 / 10, our drummer is a lumberjack).
The crack-knobs (especially volume) until no longer learn anything. I disassemble the head amp and a helping pschit knob into the slot of potentiomtres few rotations min / max, 1 hour of rest and is like new pops up next .. Normal what.
The tweeter-inducing bit of breath with such a bad multi purpose, I gnral COD.
-Rare, casi collector's find, I had a big hit of pot, the seller did not know probably not what he was trying to dbarrasser, for sure!

-How do you report qualitprix?
Ah well, in my case, just excellent.

-With the exprience, you do again this choice?
Obviously, I've seen others since, none given me want to replace it.

As t said below, happy those who have fallen on MODEL. I just wish the problem of creaking potentiomtres and thus maintain even when quite often, good is not expensive, and it is the story of 10 minutes from time to time. Other than a reproach, just thrilled.

I had a few years ago. I pay a fortune, between 600 and 700 euros. In the era supply n'tait not as varied as now. Advantages of this combo: estthique, compact enough, a certain quality manufacturing, while discrete RALIS dpannable so easily. Harris support a battery but only just. The 150 watts is a view of the interior mind because the transformer is only 135 VA and is a class AB amplifier. For those not familiar too, I translate: it is in reality a 100 W, not a 150 W. The sound is pretty average, not trsdfini not trspchu, not very deep. It may sound a bit amliorer using prampli / external pedal connected to the effects return.
Trivia: the one I had purchased the DI output that does not work. APRS opening and consideration, it lacked the jumper to the ground link, I walked and addition.
