Small, lightweight, portable, and enough volume for almost any situation. I bought this a few weeks ago to replace a 1x12 combo and cannot believe how great this sounds! I have it paired with a lightweight 2x10 cabinet, and this is plenty loud to keep up with my band, and I only turn the gain knob about 1/2 way. The MB200 is so easy to use, anybody can get a good bass tone using it. Has a great 4 band EQ and contour switch for more tone shaping options. The only negative I would say is there is no effects loop, but it is not an issue for me at all. This is the perfect head for someone playing gigs in small to medium sized clubs/venues, or for home practice/recording. I spent a long time researching bass heads and am extremely happy I chose the MB200!
