Awesome Little Amp
The MB110 was the first small amp I tested when looking for a replacement for my super heavy older amp. I was looking for something with 100+ amps. I purchased 2 other amps from other manufacturers, but ended up returning both of them.
I returned to my first choice nad purchased the MB110 from Sweetwater and have loved the amp. So far, I've only used it to practice at home and played once at our church. Can't wait to try it in some larger venues.
Just to give you an idea, when we ran the amp in the church system using the DI set to pre (amp knobs have no effect on signal), they thought it was turning up the sound in the main PA. I could not convince them that it was all the MB110. They said they heard it coming from the subwoofers! As a side note, our church is just over 2,000 square feet in the main room.
The switchable DI was one of the main features that got my attention. I like to be able to plug into a system with DI, and not have to carry a direct box around with me. The other thing I really like is that it only weighs 21 pounds. I can carry my guitar on one shoulder and the amp in the other hand.
One down side. The amp does seem to have a slightly weaker sound around the 100Hz range. Boosting EQ didn't seem to help it there, as it affects the frequences around the 100Hz also. Then again, it may just be me or my room acoustics.
As far as overall volume, I did run a simple test with an SPL meter. For those curious, with bass on the EQ set to max and volume at max, I got a reading of around 105db from about 8-10 feet away. This was done in a basement with concrete on all sides, so there was very little resonance from anything other than the amp.
I highly suggest getting this amp if you want something small, light, and not super powerful that still sounds pretty loud in smaller settings, and that can be run with a Direct Out to the PA. I also highly recommend Sweetwater!
