    Can I use it with a bass?
    Tom C on Dec 26, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Can you use it? Yes.
    Is it a good choice? Probably not.

    With the small wattage and closed back, I doubt you need to worry about blowing the speaker out. So yes, you can use it. It would be a perfectly fine choice for a portable practice amp.

    However, the 5" speaker will not put out a "thumping" bass note or make itself heard over an aggressively played standard guitar played on an identical amp. So, I would not recommend it for performance purposes.

    On the other hand, I cannot recommend a battery powered alternative at anywhere near this price point that offers a better choice. The others are just toys.
    As this amp is rated at what I’m assuming is 10 watts RMS, that means it’ll require approximately 1.12 amperes of current at a minimum at the 9 volts the batteries will nominally provide (since no amp is 100% efficient, the current required will actually be more like 1.5 amperes). That’s a good deal of current if the amp is played cranked, for 6 AA batteries to generate. How long do the batteries last before the clean tones get fuzzy on their own and the volume starts to drop off on its own?
    Lespaul 1963 on Dec 27, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: We were able to get about 6 hours of clean tone at a reasonable volume before any tonal or loudness changes were noticed.
    Will the older monoprice amps be replaced by the Indio type? Like the guitars?
    A shopper on Aug 27, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your interest in this guitar amp. This amp will not replace any current maodels. This will be our first battery powered guitar amp.

    Indio 10 watt battery amp. Steve H. Seasoned musician
    Indio 10 watt battery amp. Arrived in double box container in perfect condition. I've been a semi professional bass and guitar/musician over 40 years (Co's local T.V. ect..). Have lots of equipment but needed a small battery amp for some special applications. This has a nice clean sound and plenty of volume for such a small amp. No noise at full volume, even with my strat. Came as advertised with power supply and extra cord. Looks better than the pictures. Plenty distortion, but I bought it for the clear clean sound. Great for the price, no regrets.

    Great Bang for the Buck
    First, let's get the bad news out of the way. One of my guitars, a Strat, produces a hum when the gain and the volume are both turned up on this amp. But that is a known problem with single-wound P/Us and is why they invented the humbucker. You only hear it when you are not playing.

    Now for the good. The clean channel amplifies my acoustic/electric with a clarity that I would never have expected from a $35 battery powered amp. Toss in a reverb pedal and it is positively lush. The gain channel, is equally effective. The sound is full and deep especially when you consider the little 5" speaker, but still a little thin on the bass side.

    An unexpected feature is the volume control for the auxiliary input. Generally, they expect you to use the volume control on your CD/MP3. I am guessing they are thinking that you may wish to plug in a microphone and do a little "busking."

    I highly recommend this amp as a practice amp and it would be great for travelling.
