As I expected
Benjamin I., 16.03.2015
No surprise, as I listened to about 40 amps before choosing this one. Thomann's own standard sound bytes, and countless YouTube videos. I tested all the knobs, they work smoothly and without crackling noises. The two AUX inputs (1/4" and 1/8") work, their volume control works, too. Ditto the headphones outlet.

The -15dB switch is convenient when you don't want to disturb the neighbors, or when someone suddenly talks to you. The main input locks the jack firmly, the on/off switch is strong and snaps positively on both sides. The ON diode shines super bright, no way you won't notice it in the daytime, plus it has a nice bluish/white light.

Now the main features: the BASS-MID-TREBLE pots are silent and accurate: a half-notch move makes a noticeable change in tone. It was easy to have a slight boost without swelling the sound: I simply set them too high, one by one, and then decreased them till the swelling stopped. (my guitar is a Jazz clone).

I tried plugging a six-string into this bass amp and liked the sound a lot, even the six-string's higher notes were rendered well, really not that differently than a regular six-string amp. I might actually play them in the Ampeg sometimes when I don't need distortion, or to add low-end thump to the tone.

The volume pot is progressive enough that you can play at very low volume, precisely the volume you need, which changes often when you play at home depending on what is happening around. Its body is well finished with rough but half-shiny black skin, corner protections are neatly shaped, perfectly mated to the body.

When I buy a new apparatus I check for overtightned or undertightened screws but they were all right, this gives me confidence the inside was also assembled carefully. It's not heavy, only 10.7 kilos, not 12.7 as the site says, and handles easily. The 60° stand is cool for shooting sound at yourself instead of the ground, and the feet are rubber, not metal as in my Peavey, which can scratch a table or the ground.

The body's build is tight, and the removable grille is a hard fiber like nylon, seems a cat wouldn't scratch it easily. I regret a bit it has no overdrive, but the 10"/40w Ampeg that has the overdrive is too big/heavy/expensive/powerful for me.

As for sound quality it's a bit subjective but other compact amps color the tone with the silicon in the circuit whereas this one is more transparent. Punchy in the very low notes, more than the other small amps I listened to. Comparison is easy for anyone with a computer anyway, just use good headphones or larger external loudspeakers.

Fantastic Beginner Amp from Ampeg
S.R.M, 11.04.2021
I have a lot of good words to speak of when concerning this amp. It has a clear and warm sound and can handle being at pretty high volumes, impressive for an 8" speaker. I find it to be a very nice practice amp, I'm not the type to go gigging or anything with a large audience, but I think it could hold its own in a small gathering. There's no buzzing at all, only a slight hiss at full volume (which is completely normal).

Pro's:
- Loud rich sound, especially good for a beginner amp.
- Solid construction, mesh front is very nice and seems like it can resist the abuse of my cats!
- Packaging is excellent.
- Auxiliary volume knob is incredibly useful!
- 1/4" and 3.5mm jack for Auxiliary is a useful feature to have.
- Headphone port works quite well, although frustrating that it doesn't have a 1/4" jack, but that's to be expected with most beginner amps.
- Came with a power cable!
Con's:
- Knobs/pot's were quite scratchy to begin with, but it seems after some use they are silent now.
- Handle feels solid, but somewhat lackluster for such a heavy amp.
- LED is quite bright (this is really nit-picking).

Overall I have almost nothing bad to say about this amp. Documentation is basic but works well enough (it's quite a simple amplifier to use). Ampeg make very good products, and this is one I would absolutely add to their good reputation.

Exactly what it promised
Dimitris Kolekas, 12.04.2021
Pretty nice ampl, good design, and shape. Connecting headphone output to the interface does not provide you the expected quality of your recordings compare to the quality of the sound that you can have without headphones. DI Output is what you can expect for a complete worthy purchase.
