You can connect to the BaDass with Bluetooth to jam along with your songs. There is also a headphone output for quiet practice, which could also be used as a line out for recording, or connecting to a PA desk. All of this in a funky metalic green colour!

Compact, well built, enough gruntBy: Graeme Webster on 25 February 2022Let's be clear: this is a bass amp head, and you need a cabinet (4 ohm best but works with 8 ohm); and it is not for even mid-size rooms, as it is 50W rms. Oh, and there is no DI out. But that takes care of the limitations. You can build the sound you want, it is a solid build, and (if it matters to you,) it looks good. Great amp head for home use, the garage, a small church or hall, bar, etc.
