Its all modeled and the speaker is a big part, because using it as a preamp into other speakers is not the same. It has practice loops and built in effects, pretty cool for a hundred bucks.

It's a 15 watter, and with the JBL it'll get loud enough to bother the readily botherable, but it sounds good low (crank the tone control, though). Very simple amp--two knobs. Also: Relatively affordable as this stuff goes. Maybe $300 tops I'd think for a used one in good shape and another $100 for a k110, which would be optional anyway.

I practiced until 2am this morning learning new tunes for my band's upcoming gigs. My wife was sleeping not more than 10 feet away and she sleeps right through my practicing (even doing slap/pop bass riffs)! She can even watch TV and we do not bother each other.
This hookup also works for my electric guitar amp.
God bless my lovely understanding and totally supportive wife and Radio Shack!
chummy wrote:Hey Now. New guy here! As far as Jerry bedroom tone. I agree with the Hot Rod Delux with a D120. There are some other Mods you can to to the Hot Rod. New pot in Drive channel works. You may also want to look at dropping the Mids.
