I'm a new player but I listened to a variety of amps before making a purchase. I think I get a nice tone out the B20 when using my fender p-bass. It's loud enough to shake the walls on a low E, has an ice smooth response, good eq, and the line input + headphone output are really nice to have. I live in a condo so I have to use headphones a lot and this amp seems to perform that function really well, especially when you consider that you can play along with a song through headphones by using the line in capability.

After reading so many positive reviews and playing one in the store I bought this amp online. As soon as it arrived I pulled it out of the box, set the volume to the 10 o'clock position and was immediately disappointed. The speaker sounded terrible! It was thin and had no depth. The low notes made an aweful vibration in the speaker and it sounded fuzzy. It was obviously blown. The amp sounded pretty good through the headphones. I contacted Acoustic Amplification's warranty department the only way available; via e-mail. That was over one week ago and they still have not responded.

This amp was my first and it is amazing. I got it with my Jackson JS2 Concert bass. If I turn it half way up the whole house vibrates! Very good amp.
This really is a very good inexpensive amp. Certainly has plenty of power behind it for 20w too. I use a BC Rich Warlock thru it and they compliment each other perfectly. If your new and unsure what type of sound you want, the booklet that comes with the amp gives you 4 different setting guides that you can work from and tweak. Only 4 bands on this but such a variety of sounds can be achieved. If like me, you are looking for a great sound but don't have $300+ to splash then this is your call. You will not be disappointed.
I have owned several amps. I purchased this one to practice at home. I am able to produce a wide variety of tones with this amp. The amp has enough power to play small events as well. It is the best sounding small amp that I tested in this price range.
I had a crate bx25 for a practice amp, the passive channel went out. I bought this little acoustic as a replacement and WOW. Twice as loud and plenty of bottom for practice. As far as practicing and playing along to tracks or songs, you cannot lose! Not a gigging amp, but plenty for personal satisfaction!!! For my heavier upgrades I will keep acoustic in mind!!!
I bought this when GC dropped the price $20 and then added Valentines "candy" for another $20 off. A great deal on an awesome amp. Having a line in to play along with an iPod is a blast. The highs and lows are very clean and it definately has enough volume. I would recommend this amp again and again.
For the past year, every time I would visit gc to play bass I'd play through this amp. It is loud for a 20watt, its good size too. The mp3 input comes in handy when I don't want to hear just bass, the headphone jack is also extremely handy. I am now sworn to Acoustic amplification, this amp will not dissapoint you, it sounds just like the high end ones, and the 4 band eq helps me get the perfect tone.
Buy this amp in December 2010 ... Im really surprised at the quality and volume of sound delivery for a practice amp... although I am a beginner, I've heard and tried some other brands ... but I think the Acoustic B20 with the 12-inch speaker and 4-band Eq... is an excellent buy for the money
I have not been playing long. Only a few days. I decided it was time to learn the bass. So I made it down to my local GH and spent some time with the staff. I decided on an Ibanez 205, and this amp. Im very happy. The tone sounds great, and yesterday I decided to crank the volume and the bass, 45 sec later i got a knock on my apartment door. For its size it really gets loud. I had it a little past half and i didnt have any distortion. Great amp for the price. I should point out i live in an apartment building with 4 units up, and four down, im up and the person knocking came from across the hall from me!
This little combo is still doing exactly what I boutght it to do. It is perfect for in the living room while playing along with CMT/GAC, and the 3.5mm input is nice for plugging in my ipod. The highs don't come through from the ipod very well, but it is a 12" with no horn or tweeter. There is nothing to complain about after a year of service to me. I also am a proud owner of an Acoustic B200H, and a B410 cab. This brand has not disappointed me. Sure there are more famous brands that cost alot more money, but for all opurposes, this line of products is way better than "good enough".
a 20 watt amp with a power similar to a 100 watt. good job acoustic!
