I use this to play out with a full band (multiple guitars/drums/upright bass amplified, etc).
It sounds great and has numerous features that are needed in a live sound setting, especially for banjo players.
It has TWO inputs, one 1/4 in (instrument) input, and another that can be used for XLR (Mic) or 1/4 in. Great for running an instrument and vocals at the same time.
Has EQ on both channels, independent volumes, chorus and reverb (if you need them...).
The 1/4 in input has settings for magnetic or piezo pickups, which is nice, and the XLR input has phantom power for condensor mics which is extremely helpful.
Has a mute button and anti feedback knob that really does work and has saved me many a time already.
It has outputs for L and R XLR and mono 1/4, a subwoofer out, RCA and 1/4in L and R aux ins, a tuner out 1/4in, and two ins for footswitchable control over some of the top features.
I usually end up using the amp as a monitor, and the house runs DI out of it. I can then control my own monitor volume without affecting the house's volume. Pretty cool. Also at 60 watts (30 per side, since it has two 6in speakers) its been plenty loud on its own on most occasions.
I run a Fishman banjo pickup into an Electro Harmonix Black Finger tube compressor in to the 1/4 input, and a Shure Beta 98 h/c condenser mic into the XLR input (I play a Vega Bluegrass Senator without finger picks).
This allows me to BLEND the two signals depending on the venue. The mic is powered by the amp, and will obviously give the most natural signal, but also can be prone to feedback at high levels, even with the anti feedback technology in the amp. So I can dial up the Fishman, and back down the mic, but still have a really nice natural sound. Or in a quieter setting do the opposite, or just run with one or the other.
I think this is THE amp to play out with in MOST situations. It gives you great features and control over your sound.
I'm really surprised to have not seen another review on here about these!
