There’s an XLR mic input on channel 1. Speaking of microphones, the amplifier is especially great for microphone use.
You can attach a subwoofer to it too. This isn’t the best thing about it, however. The amp comes with a custom 1-inch driver that lets you connect Bugera’s 12-inch woofer to it.
If you don’t want to disturb family and friends, the fact that you can plug your headphones in is appreciated. There’s even a line output to let you directly connect your mixing console.

The Sawtooth amp caught our eye. The amplifiers so far were all black, so its grey body stood out.
It isn’t the most powerful amplifier, however. It’s 10 watts and has a 6.5-inch speaker. It’s very easy to carry around though. The device is 6.9 pounds and is 10.5 x 6 x 11 inches across. Its open weave grill lets sound project clearly, thankfully.
