Many users claimed that this amplifier this loud enough to use in small venues and as a practice amplifier. The volume was loud enough in situations where it was used in a band setting. This has a nice depth when it comes to lower frequency responses and also has a sturdy construction as well. The CD and MP3 input features are useful for playing along with practice songs.


Some reviews claimed that this amp does not amplify higher frequencies that well and may need some treble adjustments. Some people also claimed that it picked up radio signals and other soft noises regardless of cables used. The mp3 quality is rated as quite poor by some.


If you can still find one for sale then the DA50 drum amplifier is good enough if you are looking for something that can be used as a practice amplifier for everyday use either home and can even be used at small venues.
