Artist: Varga András
Band(s): Hahó, Öcsi
Date: February of 2014

Where tested (practicing room, concert, studio, shop):
practicing room

Instrument that used for test:
Squier Classic Vibe Jazz Bass 60s

Cabinet that used for test:
Behringer BB-150 + BB-210

External appearance (Design):
Professional, but not ostentatious. Absolutely SP's family member.
If somebody wants „bolder” appearance - wide range of custom variations
are available. The front and rear control panels are clearly visible,
the knobs are in right positions.

Sound (clean and distorted channels, compressor, EQ, tone, etc.):
thanks to the wide spectrum of adjustability, this amp is very good in different musical styles. Just a small adjusting on the potmeter and you can feel the changing in the sound. Good experiences for everyone!
We can play through the quick, bouncy, attacking sounds to the smooth, silky hummings too. This amp creates surprisingly wonderful and powerful low (bass) sounds at low volume level also.

Features (Effect-loop, foot switch, safety solutions, etc.):
Everything is built-in what you need ever.
I did not test the Effect-loop, but one day I will do that.
All the safety solutions are good for both the amp and the user too.

What kind of other amps should be build (combo, different power range, etc.):
If somebody do not like to lifting so much and/or he hasn't got friend who can do it instead of him - well, for this musican a combo would be a nice solution with similar power.
This is a 150W special edition and the 200W power version is perfect.

Suggestions (further features, appearance, etc.):
It is really Okay in this form.
