    if that's all the money you have in the world and there's no hope of ever getting more, i still wouldn't buy it. it's a bad ripoff of the ampeg svt 450h and b2re (same head, different box), and personally, i think you'd be better off looking for a used amp that's better than either one of them for the same price.

    Main thing I find I don't like about Behringer bass heads is they are big and heavy.

    If you want to future proof yourself pick up a lightweight mini head. A GK or Carvin, have great prices, or any other mini head you can afford. If you have a good cab either one will do fine in most situations.

    +1 pass on the Behringer, and save up a little more maybe, and buy USED gear. You'll get better gear for less money.

    I just tried one out at the shop where the Praise Leader of the church I play at works and it sounded amazing. He said they've had no problems with reliability and he's sold a few to people touring through the area that pick one up for a replacement/backup amp and said they reported back they loved it so much it's now their main amp. Considering the sound and bang-for-buck value, I'd consider buying one next time I'm looking.

    Yes, the down side is they are heavy...

    I own one, ...it was kinda compensation from my friend, not exactly my choice, but I played through it for almost 2 Years with no problem!

    Bad things: pretty heavy for transport (15.6 kg), no adjustable compressor (kinda automatic self adjustable one, very unwanted effect sometimes), hard to re-sale

    Good things: plenty of classic power (pure 450W/RMS into the 4 Ohms), almost indestructible

    It's still for sale in my regional online adds! :rolleyes:

    They are simply awful. Terrible CS, prone to breaking, not nearly as powerful as they say it is, low-quality electronics, plus it sounds like poo. Save your money.

    If you absolutely cannot get any more money, and don't want to go used, the Acoustic b200h can be had for around $250. Its not amazing, but its decently loud, sounds okay if very transparent, and very reliable, with a great warranty. Pair it with a VT Bass and you've got yourself a pretty decent entry level rig.
