I used to have a bass amp and cab and didn't need that for my purposes. this fits perfectly anywhere with an output that is phones ready it makes a great practice alternative to any combo amp. I would recommend this. The tones I got out of this are fantastic. The external provided 9V power source is a great inclusion.

I purchased this as I no longer wanted a bass amp for practicing. It's fantastic. The tones I can get are wonderful. The output being headphone ready is a key feature for me.
