A disappointing purchaseBy: paul on 2 August 2019This is my first portable practice amp - I got it because of it's unique (for a bass amp, anyway) feature to be powered by AA batteries - small, easily portable and discreet enough to take to small acoustic jams... or so I had hoped. I'll be honest - this little thing sounds terrible. Even on the clean channel, turning the volume up past 50% makes the speakers sound tinny and rattly. turning it up a touch more gives it a harsh, unpleasant crackle. To get any sort of clean tone, I have to drastically adjust the tone and eq on my bass and use only the bridge pickup, which as you can expect makes it sound thin, weak and nasal. The drive channel sounds nothing like an overdrive, it sounds like crumpling newspaper into a microphone. I didn't expect an amp at this price to sound glorious, but the speakers are practically unusable at any volume. The only reason I use it and haven't returned it is it does have both a headphone jack and a line in, so I can practice to prerecorded or jam tracks through my headphones and not wake up the family. I'd find a different practice amp if I were you!
