Great as practice combo and for small venues.

I actually use my Acoustic AB50 as it was meant to be used: as a practice combo with an acoustic bass. In my case, it's a highly-modified upright guitarrón tuned E1-A1-D2-G2-C3-F3, which is redesigned to play double bass blues and jazz lines. This small combo is everything I need for practice, and I have no doubt that it would work well as a small-venue amp, too. (Although I never play rock music so I'd never have to compete with a slam-bam drummer.) It has features that I like very much, including: transparent sound, two dual-purpose combination high/lo impedance input jacks with separate volume controls (great for use with teacher and student or with a separate mic), an 1/8" input that allows you to play and accompany mp3 play-alongs (which you easily can make from play-along CDs), an 1/8" headphone jack, a comfortable strap-handle, rock-sturdy construction with metal corners, and very simple operation. The AB50 also has several features that are not available on its sister combo, the Acoustic B20: a tight 10" speaker combined with a 2" tweeter (which make the soloist, chord player, and ride cymbal in play-alongs sound very good), a 1/4" output, tilt-back design, removable power cord, and a bit more power. It has a 3-band EQ (compared to a 4-band EQ for the B20), which I find perfectly adequate. (I use a multi-band EQ pre-amp with it anyway.) I originally thought that my AB50 buzzed when I played a G, Ab, or A, but that turned out to be because I had placed it badly in the room--much too close to some furniture. Changing its position eliminated any such problem. I was able to try out the AB50 at my local music store before I purchased. I was concerned that a bass combo might not reproduce the ride cymbal, soloist, and chord player very well in play-alongs, but I ran an mp3 play-along through it in the store and it sounded great--as did an acoustic bass I plugged into it. For what it is and for what it's for--the Acoustic AB50 unquestionably rates 5 stars.
