Reproduces the function of the amp it simulates.
Presence, bass, tremble, medium, gain.
Two entry: normal and bright
In addition level
A good place for bosses who did not take the shortcut of a single kind of tone knob


Difficult to find the right settings to get sound from the bassman amp which is sent.
I said I tested it on a Fender Vibrolux and an orange rocker 30. In the Vibrolux is already plugged into the bright channel, the channel of the bright boss was too "bright" and therefore out of mind bassman. Against by the rocker, the bright channel then the boss got my favor. In addition, I have the impression of the presence and use tones to correct the sound and not to create it even if settings are effective.


The report from the real bassman sweated that I could try is frankly not bad at all. We recover the inflection and spirit of the amp. However, all seems a bit less bite than the amp simulation (but my memory plays me music perhaps towers?)
Beyond the copying, not the pedal reacts badly and overcharged the registry blues / rock suits him perfectly.


I share with another audiofanzien against my TS9. I would not make any comparison between her as different in their basic purpose.
Skeptical of the sound reproduction of a legendary amp, I confess to believe even if a handful of euros we do not have the same final result, we're not far.
However I'm sure the final result is closely related to the amp where it sends the boss. On my config, impeccable ... but on the neighbor???
