I just got the Rockman Bass Ace last week and have had a chance to play with it for several hours. In that time I'm decidedly lukewarm about recommending it too highly.

I'm 44 and I play the bass in a very progressive church with music that ranges from heavy rock to funky gospel to nice slow worship music. We have a great sound system and I use pro-quality equipment so I place a premium on high fidelity tone. I bought the Bass Ace so I can plug in my Ipod and practice along with the upcoming week's music without bothering my family.

I've owned a number of headphone amps in the past including a Boss HA-5 Play Bus (which I still have) and an original Tom Shultz Rockman Guitar model (long gone). I also sometimes use the headphone-out option on my Line 6 Pod XT Live. Incidentally, the Guitar Rockman was great as long as you wanted to sound EXACTLY like Boston. The XT Live produces the the best tone overall but it is not very portable. The Boss is easily the best portable headphone amp of the group for bass even though it's designed for guitars and it's over 20 years old. But I a bass-centric unit...

At this point you're probably familiar with the specs and basic attributes of the Dunlop Rockman Bass Ace so I'll skip to my impressions.

PRO'S

Price: Overall, the Rockman is not a bad unit for the price.

No power switch: The amp comes on when you plug the bass in and goes off when you unplug it. No switch to forget - just remember to unplug it after use each time.

Bass tone: With decent headphones (see below) and some tweaking the bass tone produced by the Rockman is not bad - definitely usable. That said, compared to the Line 6 and the Boss listed above it is clearly the worst of the three.

I agree that the headphones are a piece of cr...

Used with good earphones, you'll get a decent sound.

One downside: playing bellow the standard E will cause distortion, especially on a fifth string.

I had one for my guitar in the 80's and it was nice ! This new product seems to have been made as cheap as possible. Probably like many companies looking to have more profit at the cost of quality. The case is cheap plastic and the headphones are probably worse than ones at the dollar store. The headphones were a BIG disappointing as being shipped with a "BASS ACE" because they cannot handle the bass sounds, and just rattle like crazy. Might be good for an old 9v transistor radio. They should be ashamed shipping these with this product (Bad Form). I would have preferred the AC adapter over the 50 cent headphones.

I paid $62.00, but the quality seems like it should have been $39.99 since it does not have the AC adapter. I do like having the Bass Ace, though, using my better headphones...the sound is much better. Needs the AC adapter because the battery life seems short.

You like to practice your arpeggios, right? You can't wake the kids or neighbors or roommates while you do it, right? This is the gig for you.

It doesn't sound awesome. It gets you where you need to go. And for the price it's tough to beat.
