Bought the B-Amp a little while back now, after initially buying a Genzler Magellan 800 – which is another great amp, but it just didn’t suit me. For the record…. I’ve used ALL TUBE amps all my life….since I was 14 & my dad bought me a 100w tube VASE BASSMAN (Australian made Fender copy) as he said at the time ” You’re starting to play in bands now so it’s no use getting you something you’ll need to upgrade in 6 months” – wise words!!!! So… I go for a CLEAN all tube tone ideally!
The B-Amp fit me like a glove from the 1st note. Thats WITHOUT engaging any cab profiles, onboard fx etc… It just SOUNDS GREAT from the get go. And, if ya want, you CAN simply use it as a standard amp with 4 eq BANDS- LOW, LOW-MID, HIGH-MID & TREBLE…. BUT, if you desire …it’s got SO much more available.
I haven’t got time right now to elaborate on ALL it’s goodness that even I have used & I’m more of a “PLUG n PLAY” type. I use memory 1 for a my typical use tone – a touch of COMPRESSION, a touch of OVERDRIVE( just so it adds a li’l fur if i DIG IN) & the EQ pretty much flat. I use memory slot 2 for a slightly boosted lows & low mids for my (rare) slap times, & No memory I set to be a basic clean tone. Tho for 95% I use my memory 1 setting.
Nothing BUT compliments on my tone from all that I’ve worked with so far. Love it!

I was rehearsing last night and it’s such a beautiful sounding amp. I was worried about the hifi sound not being punchy enough but it cut like a knife and somehow allowed the other instruments more space in the mix. The other thing I love is the way the eq works, it’s so smooth. We play funk and soul and just like all music, bass is the most important instrument 🙂 The B|Amp adds to the whole band as though you’ve let a studio engineer loose with your favourite bass amp and he’s just added the magic ingredient.
Thanks for making such a great piece of kit.

Just wanted to thank you for the Ref cab design! I just received the 210 today, and it completely changed my paradigm of 210 ported cabs! That tweeter makes all the difference…super smooth and seamless, top to bottom.
