    I use the PJD4 for rehearsal twice week and keep it in a gig bag, but don't want to break it out all the time for home practice. I use the Fly 3 once every 6 weeks for hospital gigs, so it sits on my desk plugged into the wall, making it much more convenient for practice

    The first amp I used with my bass uke is a Crate Limo 50w 10" speaker with dry cell battery. It was fine for rehearsal and small gigs, but when I used it for an outdoor gig, it couldn't handle it. I bought the Double Four at 70w thinking it would do better, but no, so that became my rehearsal and small venue amp since it's so much lighter and sounded that much better than the Crate.

    Last week, my friend let me try another amp, a Fat Boy 15 watt bass amp. It was better than the Peavey, but still not as good as the Blackstar. Am thinking I'd have to go up to a Fender Rumble 40 to get something more than the Blackstar. The thing is the 40 with a 10" spkr is actually bigger than my Roland with a 12" spkr! Decided to order a 4 wheeled luggage cart to bring my current amp if I need to.

    I currently use my Blackstar Fly3 bass amp for almost about all practices & gigs. Only used my Fender Rumble 40 twice where I connected to the PA via XLR.

    After hearing/trying mine, two bass players have bought the same Blackstar. One plays a ubass & the other plays an upright acoustic bass.

    Much thanks to those who posted in this thread - I never would have considered it.

    Many thanks to all of you for talking about this amp combo. I have had my bass for a week and am enjoying it very much. Lot of grinning as I learn and practice.
    The amp arrived today and now I am into another level of grinning.

    As I read over this thread since last week I kept wondering if all the positives being said about this amp could really be true. Yes, they are!!
    I do not have a preamp on my bass and wonder if it will be even better sounding with a bass that has a preamp.
    Any thoughts?

    I think for world ukulele day I will try my first circle with the bass.
