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.

great for practice

By JG

from Phoenix

Comments about Acoustic B20 1X12 Bass Combo Amplifier:

I bought this amp for my son along with an Epiphone Thunderbird goth bass. The input feature is great for playing along with your favorite bands and learning new songs. The volume control is seperate for amp while playing along with ipod or whatever allowing you to play at any level you like.

Ta Da!

By dave williams

from ashtabula, ohio

Comments about Acoustic B20 1X12 Bass Combo Amplifier:

Paired up with an Ibanez 305-5 string, it boggles my mind. my first set ups were 4 strings and a little 15 or 20 watt amp and it sounded nothing like this. As common sense tells us, this will not work for stage. it will however help keep your house clean when it knocks the dust off of the pictures.

No frills, just great sound

By Jay

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Acoustic B20 1X12 Bass Combo Amplifier:

When my 50 watt amp died, I vowed to get something small and simple. I looked at a variety of 20 watt amps and found this to be the most cost effective, easy to use, and best looking...I love that blue light. This amp is best suited for a three piece band (bass, drum with brushes or light sticks, and guitar or keyboard)in a small venue. The 20 watts is enough to fuel the low end while providing a clean treble. I use it at home and can easily carry it up and down stairs with one hand. I'm very happy and would highly recommend it.

Awesome amp

By Rey

from San Diego

Comments about Acoustic B20 1X12 Bass Combo Amplifier:

This is an awsome amp. it picks up the highs and the lows, and i like that it has a volume nob, cause my peavey didnt you just had to turn up the gain. I would definitly reccommend this to any begginner or advanced player. i dont know how well it works with a band, but it is a perfect practice amp.

Ba-Ba-Ba-B00M

By Adam Williams

from Mckinney, Texas

Comments about Acoustic B20 1X12 Bass Combo Amplifier:

I love this amp, its just about as simple as that. It has the quality of an amp that's 10 times more expensive, if anything, you will pay less for this than your bass. I put the main volume up to 5 and it shook the whole house. Nice clean smooth sound, undeniably afordable. stop reading this review and buy it now!

Great little bass amp

By Felix

from Crest Hill, IL

Comments about Acoustic B20 1X12 Bass Combo Amplifier:

I've had this amp for about a year now. It is perfect for what I am doing. I play for a musical group of 8 singers who usually perform at personal care homes along with a piano player and drummer. We play at a low volume to back up the ensemble so I never have to turn the amp above half or two-thirds volume. The amp has a solid tone and is very simple to adjust. Even the notes on the low B string sound good as long as I don't play too loudly. If you don't need a lot of volume and are mainly interested in good tone then this is fine amp to have. It's a great value for the price.

Love It

By John

from Casey, Il

Comments about Acoustic B20 1X12 Bass Combo Amplifier:

beautifully made - fit and finish is excellent - plays highs and lows very well - EQ works awesome and with only 4 bands it still does a great job of dialing in sounds - have used it in smaller venues w/ no mic at 1/4 volume and thats all the room wanted - so if you want a great practice and small venue gig amp for a great price, this is the one for you

the best practice amp ever

By john Nichols

from red lion, pa

Comments about Acoustic B20 1X12 Bass Combo Amplifier:

The tone I get from my passive jazz bass plugged straight into this amp without any effects is amazing. I wish I could use it on gigs. i get that old school sound out of it to a blistering Jaco type tone no problem. I've never been this happy with a practice amp. I use to have a SWR working man's 12 and this amp blows it away.

Big boom

By Phillip

Comments about Acoustic B20 1X12 Bass Combo Amplifier:

I bought this amp a couple of days ago and I have never been more satisfied with any other amp. It has the most satisfying sound ever. It's great for funk, blues, alternative, clean, or anything. Loud amps are fun.

Great little amp

By Roger D.

from Colorado Springs, CO

Comments about Acoustic B20 1X12 Bass Combo Amplifier:

I wanted a small amp for coffeehouse gigs with a folk singer, so I wouldn't need to lug around a 115 lb Ampeg, and I liked the reviews for this one. Since the tone was the really important thing, I resisted the urge to buy online and waited until it was in stock at my local store today; took my guitar with me to try it; bought it right away; been playing with it all evening. Yup, this is what I was looking for! Surprisingly solid tone for such a small amp, good tone controls, solid construction, and it sounds good enough that I'll definitely try using it for recording.

Great amp!

By TJ

Comments about Acoustic B20 1X12 Bass Combo Amplifier:

I just started playing bass (though I have been around bass players for many years) and this is one good little amp. I leave it at church and practice on a little kustom at home (8" celestion) and I always look forward to getting back to it and praising the Lord on Sunday!

Best practice amp for tone and value

By Richard in Rhode Island

from Smithfield, RI

Comments about Acoustic B20 1X12 Bass Combo Amplifier:

I waited far too long to buy this beauty. Finally picked one up today at the local Guitar Center. I was expecting to see good construction, hear good tones... and was not disappointed in the least. Tonally, this is the best practice amp, period. The finish is perfect, and like some other reviewers I love the blue light, lol. Dollar for dollar the best value out there, no doubt about it. But buy it for the tones. Mic it, record off it... the AC15 was a 15-watt amp and it made history, remember? Make a piece of bass history by recording with this little gem. And yes, it's easily portable with ONE HAND!!!

Comments about Acoustic B20 1X12 Bass Combo Amplifier:

I'm a bass player in the army band, and let me just say that when I'm not at a rehearsal, show, or class, this little amp is a dream! Perfect tone, sound, and size. I can pull it out any time and jam away! Great amp, great value.

The Best Little Amp I've Played!

By Caleb

from Maine

Comments about Acoustic B20 1X12 Bass Combo Amplifier:

I used to own an acoustic amp from the 70's and I loved it so I thought I'd pick this up. Believe me this amp is way louder then you think. It will distort at max volume but if you mess with the EQ you can clean it up. I am just so surprised that such an awesome and powerful sound can come from 20 watts powering a 12 inch speaker. I like playing in well mixed low volume level bands. This will force your drummer to control his sticks a bit better. Don't hesitate to but this!
