Sound — 7
I usually play my Epiphone Nikki Sixx Blackbird, through the amplifier which sounds very smooth and deep. If I wanted to do slap on the other hand I would use my Cimar Jazz Bass. The EQ feature comes in handy with the genre you decide to play on the amp. Its 180 Watts which means the amp can be used as a gig amp. The distortion channel sounds OK along with the clean channel. The mixture of Distortion and Ultrabass does sound quite cool, like an 80's synth feel but that's only if you're into that sound.
Overall Impression — 8
Overall I think the amp is a great amp for a person not looking to spend to much. The features are good for the price and the sound, not being brilliant, does sound good. If It did get stolen I would buy the amp again because it has given me great service.
Reliability & Durability — 9
I do depend on the BXL1800A because it is a tough unit without any major 'f--k-ups'. I have used it as a gig amp once but it is mainly my backup amplifier, just in case. So far, the amp has been very good to me without any problems yet. Thought I have only had the amp for 1 year now, it has been through a lot and still stands.

If you looking for a cheap bass amp, which can be used as a practice or even gig amp this is the right one for you. The Behringer Ultrabass BXL1800A has 2 channels, which can be changes via with the footswitch provided, one of the channels is clean and the other is distortion, level knobs and shape. The amp also features an EQ with an FBQ button. The main feature about this amp though, is the 'Ultrabass' feature. The Ultrabass feature plays the lower octave of what you are playing. it's an alright feature for a cheap amp but nothing over the top. The amplifier also comes with the standard; Headphone Jack, CD input, Jacks for your Pedals and Output lines. The amplifier is also on a wedge angle, which makes it very easy to access the buttons.
