Unity Elite Quotes

Mo Pleasure – Ray Charles, Earth Wind and Fire and many more/Producer

"I’m excited about Unity Elite because it fits every style of music I play"

Ray Meade – Ocean Colour Scene/Gerry Cinnamon

"The U700H is by far the most diverse bass rig I've tried. The octave setting is a game changer for me and helps retain bottom end the further up the neck I play."

James Ryan – The Slow Readers Club

"I’ve been blown away by the sound of the U700H I’m getting at home, in the studio and in full band rehearsals. I’ve not even mentioned how small it is. I can easily take it anywhere. I can’t wait to try it on the road."

V-Man - Slipknot

"Straight out the box at 12 o’clock the U700H sounds really expressive. Add some chorus and compression and you have a killer loud bass amp for any size gig or bedroom."
