Which amp would be the best?
I'm thinking of getting a new practice amp (if i can sell my guitar pedal) because my current amp is a very cheap harley benton, which is pretty bad. I need a new amp only for practicing at home. I found some great amps:
I play mostly punk-rock and pop-punk (and some metalcore).
Please give me your advice, your opinion.
I'd start by looking through here (http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f15/am...-links-166225/) and doing a search on each of those amp models to see what anyone is saying about them.
Your genre will be irrelevant with an amp in that performance range, so I'd focus more on what's the best price/quality rating and whichever one sounds best to you when you go and try them out in the store. If you've been a member since January, then you should know that's the answer you're going to get from practically everyone else...go and try them out on your own with your bass.
When i have some time i will try them out or maybe spend a little more money for the quality.
I'm not familiar with the Harley Benton, but I would figure that none of those amps would be a huge step up from it.
Have you ever considered using headphones as a primary means of practice? You can get awesome sound quality though a decent set of phones and your computer/iPad/iPhone/etc.
Frankly none of those would be that much of an improvement compared to what you have now. I think the headphone option is a great one. If not, I would save up and look at combos in the $400-500 range. They usually give the most bag for the buck. A great combo in that range is the TC bg250 its actually $349 on musciansfriend
For practicing, yup, just about anything that puts out sound is good enough, really. I would suggest shopping features first. Do you practice with cd/mp-3? If so, then an amp with RCA and/or 1/8" input would be good. Do you want to hear it mixed with the aux input only through the headphones, or have the option of hearing it through its speaker, too? Some practice amps only send aux inputs through the headphone circuitry, so be aware of that. Would you like to be able to use it as a grab-and-go amp for small get-togethers, too? Maybe a slightly larger unit with a kickback shape might be of better interest to you. Like crunch, but not always? Look for one with selectable overdrive instead of a single gain/volume setup. There are a lot of options to consider for practice amps, but keep in mind that at the end of the day, they are all still just practice amps, so maybe don't drop too much cash for it.
Thanks for the advices. I think i will save up for a 300-500$ amp.
check out the roland Cube Bass RX it is awesome.
