Bass amp help.

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm a guitarist playing bass in a band at the mo and I'll be needing to buy a bass amp soon. Only problem is i know nothing bout bass amps at all. Anyone recommend anything for like 500 - 600. I thought the fender ones look pretty cool but i dunno.

Cheers.

T'is true - you don't need to spend 600! I've got a Torque 200W combo that cost me half that (although Torque have gone bust now) and it does me a treat. You can also take it on the bus which is a good feature!

I think by the time the guy has £500-£600 to spend on a bass amp... he wants something that he won't have to upgrade in a year or so cos it ain't what he wants.

Oops! Seems like you made a spelling mistake, I think you meant to say:

ive used it for a show in moshulu, and it was fine for that. 650 person venue and all that. . . onstage volume was fine also. so i cant see your problems. :)

since im full blown skint it seemed like a decent amp to buy.

but in response to the topic, you may also fancy lookin at ashdown or ampeg. generally more expensive tho

Ever wondered what that silver box you plugged in to was?

Yeah I did look at the behringer stuff but it all seemed emm well, a bit shit. I was looking for a trace elliot like the one in drummonds with the 4x10s but i couldn't see them anywhere. I'm thinking bout going for a 4x10 Hartke combo for 449. Anyone played any of these? Also whats gallien-krueger stuff like. Theres a 2x10 combo for 645 on GAK and it looks pretty cool.

get in about it and try it yourself. you'll only get a real feel for the quality and the sound if you do it yourself. my personal preference is to avoid behringer and laney but the next amp i buy will most likely be an ampeg.
