The sound is very good! And running the amp is easy as pie, the keys and fine tuning EQ's are very easy to set. I play metal, and punk, and this amp dose all that and more! Sadly the Manual has a lot of small print and can be hard to read, that being said it dose come with enough photo print to set the EQ's for (Rock, funk, jazz, and pop)


I play a 1980's Fender Jazz bass, and a 2009 Fender P-Bass, both American made. I also use a Jackhammer overdrive and distortion pedal. The Ultra-low kicks major ass! The Bright isn't very amazing by its self, but with a Distortion pedal it's very cool. The only problem I have is the pre-amp Frequency needed a little work. I mainly use a Heavy tone with this Amp, but the Clean side is very crisp and clear.


I like the the low end the most, it's crisp, has a good thump! Things I don't like? The cooling fan is very loud after playing for an hour or so it also weights 45 freaking pounds, to moving it is a real pain.. I used to use a SVT 3 I liked it, but needed more power and better low end. The sound on this SVT 6, is awesome, and some of the best I've herd, live shows, and just messing around, it's awesome, recording is trouble due to the cooling fan noise. I would buy this amp 100 more times if I had too.
