Reeves Custom 225 Bass Amp
Reeves Amplification announces its first entry in the bass amp category with the Custom 225. Rated at a punishing 225 watts into 8 ohms, the Custom 225 was designed from the ground up with the bass player in mind, with features like active / passive input selection and balanced XLR line out.

Reviews

The first thing you notice when you fire up the Custom 225 is the truly massive, lush, powerful low end.  You feel like you are playing in a stadium with a wall full of amps behind you, no matter what the volume level.  It is a highly satisfying sensation."
