    "The real deal!"

    This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.

    Sound:
    I wanted an amp that I could play and get a decent tone from, without the need for effects pedals to help generate the sound I'm looking for. This amp does this and more. I sold an Eden Nemesis RS-400 amp because, although it had great power and a decent tone, all I could get was a slight variation of the same tone. Not with this amp. Once you plug into it, and spend maybe a half an hour or so fiddling with the knobs, buttons, EQ settngs, and the tone/pup knobs on your bass, you'll find all kinds of tone candy. The bright, ultra high and ultra low buttons dramatically change the tone generated from this amp--from tube warmth, to punching slap.
    Feature:
    This amp comes with a EQ on/off + mute. This is handy when you want to activate those custom EQ settings on the fly. Although compression is not bad, it's not as good as the EBS multi-comp I play through.
    Ease of Use:
    Settup is fairly straight foward. Fool around with the knobs for about an hour and you will love it.
    Quality:
    The only reason I'm giving this a 6 is because I was sent the last one in stock, and it had a short in the signal chain. Maybe being the last one it got knock around or dropped I don't know. So beware of postings like "only two left in stock". Wait until the get more in.
    Manufacturer Support:
    After receiving the prepaid UPS return label the turn-around after a sent it back was less than 3 days. I returned it monday morning and received a new one Wed afternoon. SDM rules when it comes to customer service
    Value:
    If you look a the Ampeg SVT Pro 3. This is the same amp but with at least 2 extra 12AX7 tubes, + an extra 100 watts. There are die hard purest who hate knock-offs, but this is the real deal.
    Overall:
    The only thing I'm buy to compliment this amps is perhaps 2 or 3 effects. That's it. If you've got a decent cab, you will love this amp.

    "Sounded good while it lasted"

    This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.

    Sound:
    A beautiful, full and warm tone. Just what I was after.
    Feature:
    It didn't work long enough for me to explore all the tones available. A footswitch is a nice feature and I was intrigued by the possibilities of the switchable graphic EQ and the valve drive function.
    Ease of Use:
    Simple as pie.
    Quality:
    It's a heavy beast and seems solid, but it only lasted for half a song, so it's hard to say.
    Manufacturer Support:
    SDM issued an RA immediately, hope to get a replacement quickly. We'll see how the follow up support process works. I expect good results so I'm rating it as such.
    Value:
    If it works, it's an incredible value.
    The Wow Factor:
    For the money, this is potentially one monster of a deal. It's a big sound for very little money.
    Overall:
    This amp has a full, warm and really quite awesome bass tone. It was replacing a Fender Rumble 350 head and the difference between the two was immediately apparent. While the fender's sound was okay, it just didn't fill the sound of the three piece band I'm in the way I like it to. Unfortunately, the unit only made it halfway through the first song I used it for. We're not a loud band by any means and I was hardly stressing the unit, but the sound faded in and out and then died completely. Lights worked, no sound. Fortunately still had the Fender but I was extremely disappointed to say the least. SDM was great in shipping and setting up the return. I'm trying another one with the idea that everyone gets two strikes and because I really liked the tone and solidity of the amp.
