Kustom KXB100 and KXB10 review

A pair of bass combos in giggable 1x15 and practice-friendly 1x10 formats that are big on tone but tread lightly on the finances

Guitar World Verdict

With cheaper combos on the market offering more functions and greater flexibility, these Kustom combos face stiff competition, but if a simply laid-out combo is for you and weight isn’t an issue, both of these amps might just fit the bill.

Kustom’s new KXB series of bass amp combos begins with 6” and 10” speaker-equipped 10-watt home practice units, and moves up to 20 and 100-watt alternatives, geared towards rehearsal and small-sized gigs. 

These units are sensibly priced and shouldn’t blow too large a hole in your finances. Looking at the two combos here, simplicity and ease of use are common factors in their design, but do they pack enough of a punch where it counts?
