I have tried every bass amp sim, plug-in, Cab IR, standalone and in countless combinations searching for a REAL sounding vintage growling tone. I thought I was happy with what I had until I downloaded the bassdude demo, then it all changed, I only need this now. I can now sound like the 60's tones I adore, from Duck Dunn to Willie weeks . Brilliant product
Excellent, really excellent emulation of a classic amp design. Definitely recommended!
I have many plugins for guitar and bass...But this one is the very best!! Clean sound vintage and solid
This is it!

I record and mix rock music for more than 40 years. I'm a bass player. And I own and used all the other bass plugins from UAD, Waves, ..... Bass Dude is the only product beside Kemper Reamping that gives me that sound I want to hear. You can hear exactly where a note start and ends. This is essential for my ears.

This amp is just stellar! Love it!
Loving the Bassdude on guitar and bass and it takes pedals very well. The recording chains are fantastic at mix time. If your sound isn't quite fitting just put the recording chain audition thing into auto and play the track listing until you find the right chain to fit your track. Love it
great amp sim!
Great amp sim, but PA should make a more detailed manual with some suggested input levels. if not for the guy that states about input gain, I would not have bought any PA amp sim. the learning curve is longer, but the sound is way better than what's available int he market. I suggest that PA also makes a "de-picking" plugin. you already have the code (SPL De-esser, DSM, dynamic EQ, etc). I bet it could be a nice plugin.
Brilliant! This is the best amp sim I have come across. Works wonderfully for bass and guitar. Just the sound I was looking for. It is a treat to play through this plugin. Sits very good in a mix. It takes hardly any tweaking to sound good. So it is my go to plugin. Thanks PA!
This amp has a typical retro sound, it sounds awesome. As many of the bx amps it delivers an authentic sound, switch mic on your guitar and the amp will sound differently, like a real amp. This is among the best amp sim I know of, the sound is better suited to rock-type sound (not metal) but is also very nice in clean mode with a subtle touch of overdrive.
I love this amp sim. In the early 80's I played a 68 Les Paul Custom through a 70's Bassman 100. That was my ultimate tone. I have always tried over the years to emulate that sound. This sim sounds like that old amp.I have a lot of other sims but ever since I bought this one it has become my go to when recording. It has that "tone" that I just love.
