    I used to be jealous of my friends that had Trace Acoustics compact guitar amps. Wished there was a way to get a 5" cube that sounded like 2 - 15" speakers. The Fly3 Bass pack doesn't sound like a 15" speaker but it's even smaller than the Trace Acoustics amps.

    katysax, kohanmike, I ordered the Fly3 Bass pack from Amazon based on your reviews. I had to strap my 80's-era Roland SuperCube Bass amp & Peavey Dyna-Bass onto a dolly & push it a block to get to one ukulele gathering. Now I can carry my amp in a shopping bag! Intend to use it for a gig next month.

    While waiting for it to arrive, I saw it at a music store & thought 'it's not gonna work - it's waaaay too small'. After unboxing the pack & trying it at home, thought to myself, it's not loud enough. However, it worked fine when I took it to a ukulele group session.

    Good for you Ampeep. I have a Chinese 10w with a 4.5" speaker and the Fly 3 out does it hands down.

    I would have thought that 10 watts with a larger speaker would be louder. I envy your Carvin 200 watt rig; must sound impressive! Guess you'd NEED to wear earplugs!

    Likely the 4.5" is terribly inefficient. It might be worth replacing with a better 4.5" driver. Sadly this is the only 4.5" i see at parts express: http://www.parts-express.com/replace...1-ohm--290-922

    ugh 1 ohm but 91.5db sensitivity..... looks like there's more options at 4"

    Not worth it, I'm going to give it to my friend who recently started playing harmonica (I inspired him) and wants a small practice amp.
