Here's what Ampeg say about the Rocket Amp:
The 500-watt Ampeg Rocket Bass RB-210 combo bass amp offers unparalleled performance, stunning ’60s-style looks, and a robust feature set in a light and portable package — making it the ideal gigging amp.
Like its legendary larger siblings, the RB-210 combo offers classic Ampeg 3-band EQ and Ultra Hi/Ultra Lo switches, which tone aficionados know are critical to sculpting the perfect bass sound. Plus, a newly designed switchable Super Grit Technology overdrive circuit with independent Grit and Level controls adds warm and gutsy growl. A mutable high-frequency horn complements the dual 10" Eminence speakers.
An effects loop and extension speaker output add flexibility, an auxiliary input lets you play a long with external audio, a headphone output ensures you’ll be able to practice whenever you like, and the XLR direct output provides a professional connection to a P.A. or recorder.

SUPER GRIT TECHNOLOGY (SGT) OVERDRIVE
The RB-210 bass amplifier comes equipped with proprietary Super Grit Technology overdrive circuitry, with independent Grit and Level controls, which provides more of the warm and gutsy growl that defines the coveted Ampeg tone.

Despite its big and powerful sound, the RB-210 is small and lightweight enough to make it a superb practice amp.
