Seems pretty legit so far
Paul592, 03.07.2021
I have had this amp for about a week now and I've tested it out at home a bit in preparation for some gigs and maybe busking.

Pro's:
- Cost
- Loud
- Lightweight
- Decent overall sound
- Battery seems good so far

Cons:
- At certain frequencies the amp barks unpleasantly, especially "s" sounds
- The "reverb" isn't actually reverb its a short delay!!!
- The bass levels are a bit uncontrollable sometimes

Overall I'm fairly happy with this amp for the price, but I really wish the reverb was a reverb, even a generic digital hall sound is better than the cheap sounding delay that it has. I was disapppointed by that cos I really wanted reverb on the vocals not delay.

For the money this could be the best one for small gigs or busking (even though in the manual they say not to use it outside... But surely that's the whole point of a portable speaker?!?!)

EDIT: It's been about 2 weeks now and all of the rubber stand offs on the bottom have come off! They used the weakest glue I've ever seen. I can literally peel it off with my fingers. BAD

For Bass
Silvers, 01.10.2020
From a bass player comparing the Bose S1 the MBA1... the MBA1 handles bass better. Still its easy to overdrive the speaker if not careful. Same can be said for the Bose though. At a comparative volume level though the MBA1 has a deeper cleaner tone for bass.
A normal acoustic guitar I would use the Bose....bass I would use the MBA1.
Would be nice to see more of these kind of battery cabs dedicated to bass though.... and not just for guitar

cute.

Plenty powerful enough for gigs in small and busy bars.
A bit "boomy" if not restrained by the eq, but trebble too can be overwhelming if not eq'd. Once eq'd, crank it up and rock out.
The echoe, or reverb, or what ever its called is a bit overwhelming too if not restrained by the controll knob. Not the best, but I never use it, so no problem for me.
Very light and sizewise, its a great package.
I really like this little beast,, but used on a stand at abou7t1-3/4 mtrs high, it punches out some real clean sound.
I reccomend it to solo performers. Very quick charge batteries easy last a full gig for anyone.
A little downer is the white noise in quiessance, but never heard in the venue, so absolutely no problem whatsoever.
Fast delivery and 30 days to return it if not happy with it.
We cannot go wrong.

MBA1
G J Pistorius , 19.09.2020
Nice product, especially if you use it for travel and acoustic guitar or bluetooth music.
I Bought it to use with my Mooer GE300 or Hotone Ampero but with both units it just sounds flat. The distortion sounds lack depth and sound overall thin.
The unit itself is a really good build and everything feels solid.
If you are in for a busking amp that does it al and is really handy this might just be the best pick. There is definitely no better quality to cost ratio speaker around.
