Win a Beta Aivin BM6 Mini-Amplifier for Guitar

A little 10 watts portable amplifier. It has a clean and lead channel, 4-band equalizer and chorus/delay section. This amp is obviously made for beginners, but the most advanced of you guys can use it as an additional practive amp for home. I used my Ibanez AX-125, the ES-335 like Marathon (for a funny swingy approximate version of a Hendrix riff) and a little bit of Clearwater Lapsteel.

I liked:

  • The clean tone.
  • The sound projection is actually roomy
  • The delay is quite flattering to practice. It adds more room
  • The 4-band equalizer allows to carve a pleasant sound.
  • You can use the gain knob of the lead channel up to 11 o’clock and the sound is still good.

I did not like:

  • It has the small solid state amps disease: it is hard to have a defined signal while you push the gain knob to the max. However, many say (and I do agree with ’em) that a good distorted sound doesn’t necessarily mean gain to the max.
  • When the chorus control knob is turned up after 10 o’clock, it generates a hum. Not that noisy but still there.

That is a good little practice amplifier for home. I used it mostly up to 11 o’clock volume level and it had a lot of room. I think the beginners would appreciate it because of the good clean tone with the flattering delay. I liked the fact that you can also power it with batteries… This means that it easily can be portable, in the car trunk for vacation or to jam at the next barbecue.

  1. Again this would be useful as a practice amp in my new studio, for when I teach guitar.

  2. Lord knows I need practice. But the neighbors have asked that I no longer practice with a 120 watt half-stack.

  3. J’ai un petit garçon qui aime bien la musique. s’il a du bon matos, les pokemon n’auront qu’à bien ce tenir !

  4. Je ne sais pas jouer de la musique, j’veux seulement cet ampli pour me faire photographier dessus en bikini afin qu’on me choisisse pour le dating show de Bret Michaels.

    Quoi?

  5. I am in desperate need of a small practice amp. This would work great and and not piss of the neighborhood.

  6. I deserve to win this giveaway because this is for a device that makes soundnoise louder and if that is what it does then I am surely a fan of that. Also, I noticed it had a button and I like that. And I like that it has letters and a box. Thank you for being wonderful.

  7. Je pense que cet ampli est de taille pour rivaliser avec la suprême grandeur de mon jeu de débutant.

  8. Ben si je gagne cet ampli je me le trimballerai partout avec moi, pour aller donner des cours sur autre chose que sur des line6 tout moisis :pp

    Bonne chance à toutes & tous pour ce concours !

  9. Allez faut bien participer aux 4 concours.
    Comme on disait chez Peugeot : “jamais 304”.

    “La mini-amplification a du bon.

  13. utilisable sur pile ce petit ampli c’est le rêve je pourrais envoyer mes ados bien loin au milieu des champs et moi entendre enfin les oiseaux dans le jardin

  14. Je souhaite gagner ce petit ampli, parce que le mini-ampli est à l’ampli ce que la mini-jupe est à la jupe.

  15. Un petit ampli, certes !

    Mais un grand pas pour le débutant que je suis…

    Et à la maison je pourrais toujours dire : « regarde ce n’est qu’un tout petit ampli, vraiment tout petit, tout petit, tout petit,… ».

    Cela ne peut qu’être très bon pour la promotion de la guitare électrique et pour la paix des ménages !!!!
