Perfect solution for aging bass player

We bought this for the bass player in our mostly acoustic, folkie-pop band. We'd gotten tired of hauling his massive amp out to gigs and then relying on a good mic. The DI out on this little guy make it the perfect solution... he sets it fairly close on a chair or a table as a stage monitor, while the FOH gets a pristine signal. It's plenty loud enough for our practice sessions and it sounds darned good.

Killer Little Amp

This is an amp designed for practice use and recording, and it excels at both. It's compact, light and puts out big sound for it's size. The palette of sounds gives you everything from ultra clean to Lemmy style dirt, with lots of meat and potatoes in between. The Fender Fuse software is a breeze to install, and it makes tweaking fast and easy. It has plenty of volume for a small gig, or to use as a stage monitor while running a line out of the rear XLR. For me personally, I can't believe the friggen balls the Ampeg model has for such a small amp. I'm impressed.

I played in two US Navy bands many years ago and then spent 20 years making a living with my basses. I bought this amp about 3 years ago and it was love at first sight and tryout. The models and effects are great and this little amp is loud for its size! The low end capability is incredible for such a small cabinet and it is clean as a whistle.No mud at all provided you EQ things correctly. It is solid right down to 40 Hertz and maybe even below that. As a jazz guy I could play at small clubs with no problem. For jazz and some other styles this is a gigging amp although I use it for practice at home. I also play my 300 dollar chromatic harmonica through it and sometimes my Telecaster Custom. It is versatile and high quality. Fender has hit a grand slam home run with this little beauty! My Fender Precision and Ibanez Fretless like this amp too and that makes me very happy!

Fender Bronco 40 1x10" 40-Watt Bass Combo

This is my first bass amp and I am impressed. The unit is well built, has a lot of features and sounds great. I am just learning bass guitar and had no idea about amps so I bought this one from Sweetwater. I have tried all 8 amp emulations. They all sound good but I really like the Bassman TV preset. I use the built in tuner every day before I start to practice. With the eq on the amp I turn up the bass a little, turn down the mid and high and it sounds great. The amp doesn't all that loud but for my learning now thats fine. I would recommend the Bronco 40 to any one looking for a versatile amp to use at home with of tone and you won't blow away your neighbors.
