Roland BN-60 Reviews 1

Found on eBay, $200...


For one thing the guy who sold it to me said it was rated at 150 watts rms through a 15 inch speaker... i thought it was a great deal, wasted 2 weeks of my life being excited about it then when it got here i plugged it in, turned the volume halfway and struck the E string.... bbbbbbbbbbzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzrattlerattlepoppopcracklecrackle.... turned it down a little...ok.....a lot, and i could hear the E without distortion. i almost cried... the thing sucked so bad, it even smelled funny...they i look behind it and see that the 150 watts wasnt the power it put out, it was the power it took to run the stupid thing... so then i realise the actual wattage of the amp is less then 30 when i plugged in my old johnson practise amp, (rated at 15 watts) and it almost overpowed it. so there i was stuck with a nice 63 pound paper weight.

piece of crap

its from the 80s i think, or early 90s, so its hard to find, but if you see this it doesnt deserve a "1" rating....think -10....thats still to high.
