Sound — 8
I use a washburn Xb 100 pro bass, and use it for my metal style playing. Holds up excellent just have to be careful with the bass setting. Best with outside use, projects the sound molecules far.

Overall Impression — 10
Amp works with any type of music. I've been playing for ruffly 2 or 3 years on bass. I own a washburn xb 100 pro, horizon cords. Definetly buy again. Love the deep tone, dislike the confusing features of getting so it doesnt max out. Great chorus effect with adjustable settings. Tried out with a Peavey bass sounded the same as my Washburn.

Reliability & Durability — 10
Very dependable great for gigs. Best with the 220 watt speakers though to produce a more rich sound. Never broken down. Typical quaility from Crate ammps

Features — 8
Good size 160 watt bass amp. Good for loud pumping metal sound or versatile enough for little bass lines. It's kind of a bear to figure out the features. Maxes out quickly if you don't know what you are doing. Effects loop, no headphone jack which i was dissappointed with. Has built in chorus with adjusters. High and Low boost, gain, preshape, balanced output, Several channels. Ruffly 70 to 80 lbs
