I rented this to test out at rehearsals. I wasn't able to turn up passed 1 o'clock on the amp before the fault light would turn on. It happened three times during one song. Needless to say, I wasn't a fan. This was unfortunate because the tone was great but it couldn't even compete with the 100watt valvestate guitar amp. My drummer had a direct out for in ear monitors and thought the tone was great. It is just too bad it doesn't supply the volume it boasts.

Top notch for the price. You can great pretty much any sound out of it. If you play with your thumb and select the "Ultra Lo" you might just bring the walls down. Great unit for the price.

Ampeg has made a great bass head for players on a budget. Goes well the Ampeg SVT410hlf cab. The value is there and with the right tweaking you can get that classic Ampeg sound. Also, this amp with save you back and is light enough so your kid can carry his own equipment.
