Price paid: € 700

Purchased from: private studio

Sound: Sound is Clean clean clean , Fender clean , no backgroundnoise , no hummin .. real Studio gear , fantastic tonesettings possible . use the equalizer to make your own sound , I play with Hofner 500Ct and Epi Viola . I play mostly 60 ties music and it suites wonderfull. // 9

Reliability & Durability: Unless some scratching from poti's that's easaly cleaned with some contactspray , no problems with the amp ; but let it cool down before moving it around when finished playing to save your tubes from harm ; Fender people don't even know this amp exists !! // 9

Overall Impression: I play about 4 or 5 years now on this beast , If it's lost I get an identical one for sure ! compared to the Ampeg's : it got more possible tonesettings and it's cheaper in maintenance :6L6 are way cheaper then 6550's .As standard combo is the perfect studio bassamp for bassguitar or even for stringbass , using the ampschassis only with seperate JBL speakers makes for the ultimate sound you can get ; // 10
