I am very happy with this practice amp. Newer bassists will want something with more punch to jam with in the garage. Those of us that either have a separate gigging amp or a simple need for portability and in-home use will find that this is a great buy. The tone is great and the rhythms are essential for practice. Great for amplification around the fire pit. Back when I toured I would have loved this on the bus. Not for starving musicians. My Ken Smith sounds true. See you in the pocket!
