UTILIZATION

I use it with a Fenix JazzBass and a Korg AX5B pedal.

The sound without pedal is very good. The setting possibilities are basic but quite effective to create different sounds catering to everyone's taste. Deeper, a bit more "jazzy", aggressive, sweeter... In my bedroom I never set the volume control above 1 or 1.5 (10-steps scale) so that means the amp is powerful.

With the pedal it's just magic...

I haven't had the opportunity to use it in rehearsal with my band (we need a singer/guitarist) but I will have enough volume to play next to the drums.

SOUNDS

As I mentioned before, the clean sound is great and it is even better with the effect pedal, almost magical. I know it's not a brand amp but its 120-watt output power and its price are good enough for me.

The RB2 can handle the effects of my Korg pedal. It offers the right amplification for them and I can shape them very accurately thanks to the controls on the pedal and the amp.

The only negative point is that if you use the Comp(ression) control the sound is over-compressed making it useless on a professional level. It's convenient when I play in my apartment after nine o'clock in the evening, but during the day it reduces the output volume way too much.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought it 5 months ago and I still have nothing to criticize. I wouldn't hesitate to buy it again.

I recommend it to everyone searching for a good rehearsal amp or for small venues. For bigger concerts, you'll need a more powerful high-range product. It's a mid/high-range amp and it's rather heavy (46.3 lb.)!

I'd rate its value for money with 9/10 because nothing is perfect, even though this amp does tend to perfection!
