I love the amp and would give it 5 stars but for one thing. When the amp arrived, one of the plastic external corner protectors was cracked to the point of falling off. I immediately asked customer service if one of those protectors could be sent to me to replace the cracked one. Online, METAL protectors of this type cost less than $1.25 retail. I suspect Donner pays 25-50 cents apiece for them wholesale in plastic. I got the response that they needed a picture of the broken piece that I had already glued up and used a permanent marker to "paint" the crack line. There is no gross defect to capture on a picture. I have neither the time or understanding to know why I cannot get a very cheap replacement of a part that will sure crack again, having already repaired it somewhat, without dancing through hoops. I am a physician. I frankly do not have the time to write this note. I was irritated enough by the small mindedness of the customer service people over an inexpensive piece like this that I had to comment. It's just ridiculous and no apology will buy back the time I have wasted already. When the glue breaks, I'll spend 10 bucks and get a set of metal protectors, I guess. Having made real effort to make myself available to patients for 44 years, I just do not get this attitude over a piece of plastic. What's wrong with you guys?
Beautiful sound enjoy:-) thank

I bought this for my kid’s Alesis Nitro Mesh eDrums kit. The sound isn’t bad considering the price. We can Bluetooth a device to it to play along to Spotify or hook directly into the AUX port with a cable. We currently have drums, keyboard and a bass all plugged in using various adapters — it’s great, because you can control levels independently and get the mix balanced quite nicely. Again, it was easy on the wallet and don’t mind so much if the kids rough it up.

Very pleased at the quality and versatility of this amp.
It’s definitely got more than enough power for my usage, haven’t needed to turn the volume past 3. The bluetooth paired to my phone very easily, which will make playing along to streaming music much easier as I don’t have a headphone adaptor. Used the aux input for my ipod, and have tried a drum machine and bass guitar in the standard inputs. Though I haven’t had a chance to set up with my electronic drum set I have no doubts it will work great in that context. The sound of the amp has a great bottom end, and clear highs as well. While you won’t mistake this for a studio monitor or hi-fi speaker, it’s a solid tone for a practice amp and seems to cut very well. It is a fantastic bass practice amp for me, and I also plan to use with my vintage synth and electronic drums when I have a chance to set them up again. The number of inputs and built in bluetooth make it unnecessary to use any external mixers for my purposes, solo practice and songwriting.
The covering of the amp is great, it’s got a tough semi-rubbery texture and I was very pleasantly surprised by it’s feel. Switches and knobs are solid and the metal speaker covering seems very tough as well. Overall it definitely punches above it’s weight. One thing to note is that there is a laptop style external power brick. Also, the included instrument cord is solid and works well, it’s a nice bonus. The shipping box was well packed and protected.
While not flashy, this amp is very solid feeling and versatile especially given the price point. This will be receiving a lot of use in my small home studio / office. Seems like it would be a good portable karaoke amp too (just need an xlr to 1/4” adapter and mic). Very happy with my purchase, Donner knocked it out of the park with this amp.

Nice compact size that fits well under my electronic drum kit. Gets pretty loud. Certainly loud enough for practicing in an apartment. Has a headphone jack to spare your neighbors. I think it would get lost if you were trying to use it on stage with loud electric guitars. Probably would want something beefier though for live shows, but I think this would do with acoustic instruments in a pinch. Seems solidly built. Isn't flashy looking, but has nice features. Two inputs, so you could use with a microphone. I think a keyboardist/singer would like this too. Has a 3 band EQ. Has bluetooth, so you can connect your phone and drum along with music. Has controls on the unit to adjust bluetooth volume and skip/go back to the next song, but since I had the amp on the floor it wasn't as convenient as doing those actions on my phone. Also has an auxillary input 1/8" mini plug that you could also use to play music if you didn't use the bluetooth. Listening to the video I uploaded, it actually has more low end than my phone recorded. Not super bassy, but you can definitely get a strong kick sound.
Nice little amp for the price
Versatile little amp. Can’t beat it for the price.
Works great, does what it's supposed to do
Great value. Use it for my son’s electric drum set and works great
Nice monitor for small electronic drum set. Only for in-home practice and not public quality.
This amplifier does exactly what it should. The quality is great!
I use this amp for my Yamaha E463 keyboard. It produces very good sound and I love the equalizer. A lot of quality for the money. I like that is has two inputs too. I use one for a mic for singing and it works fine. Great value. Looks god too!
Great value for the money. Perfect to use as a monitor with output for PA. Also has Bluetooth speaker function. Designed for Electric Drums/ Keyboard, but has great sound with my guitar/bass as well.
Affordable Amp/Speaker with very convenient features, some of them we cannot find on other expensive units. Particularly Bluetooh.Awesome unit, you can't go wrong.
I'm really surprised at the quality of this inexpensive amp. Only needed it for son's at-home practice with the Donner-200 set we got him for our small space. It can definitely produce quality sound and bass tones. Worth the purchase.
I was looking for a portable amp that I could use with both my electronic drum kit and synths. This fit the bill perfectly. I’m very happy with the size and build quality of the amp. The eq controls are handy and I really like the separate aux control. Most importantly the sound quality is excellent for The price. Great practice amp while jamming with friends!
I've owned a number of Donner products over the years--Ukuleles, Guitars, Drums--and always found them to be GREAT values for the money. This is the first amp I've bought and happy to say its the same quality as I've seen with past products. This amp is solid and will hold up very well if you take it to transport. There are a number of reviews that focus on it as a drum amp, so I'll let you know my experience with a keyboard/Mic/general guitar amp. I used this with my kids for a bit of karaoke and hooked into a digital keyboard. Both performed extremely well and had lots of volume without distortion. I think this is perfect for either set up (and based on electonic drum kit reviews for that as well). I did hook it up to various guitars. While it would be fine in a pinch, I suggest sticking to dedicated amps for those purposes. The dual line ins with independent control was excellent.Overall, I'd highly recommend this amp, especially for the price. Compared to much higher end units, I fine it a great feature packed value for your money.
Bought for my son’s digital drums, great product, exactly what we needed for his “concerts”
I think the sound of this unit is really good especially given the low price point. I would recommend this product to a friend as I’ve been very happy with mine.
2 inputs for instruments/microphones, Bluetooth ready to connect your ipod to play along with your favorite music, equalizer controls, everything I expected and a great price. Highly recommend!
Connected my drums to this amp and they sound great! The amp has built in Bluetooth so you can play over songs on your phone wirelessly. I have had a blast with this amp and it sounds great. So happy with this purchase!
This amp has a good sound for the small size, just want I wanted, not to bother neighbors too much.It's hooked up to a roland drum set. Doesn't take up too much space. Jammed once with a guitarist on low volume. The other drum amps looks to big for my townhouse.
Have been having a ball with this little amp hooked to my Alesis Propad drum pad machine! The Bluetooth feature is excellent for accompanying songs and downloaded audio files from drum teaching books. Also got a nice sound out of it attached to my Casio keyboard. I haven’t cranked it up above 3 as my wife has been in the house but enjoy it through headphones. For a practice amp it was at least $100 less expensive than other drum amps with similar features but it is solid and does not feel cheap.
