    I'm in a bit of a dilemma about what to buy! Should I get the Alesis 16 Drum Machine or the digitech bp200? Does the digitech bp200 come with drums? If so is it any good? Or should I get them both :)?

    Please help me ....:) Thanks
     
  2. I am not a big effects guy so I can't help with that but your drum machine of choice is probally the best one I have owned.

    what are you wanting to do with the drum machine?

    If you're wanting to use it as a live backing tool, have great drum sounds and program songs, you're better off with the sr16. You can get a used one on ebay for uder $100

    If you want something to play along with while you're practicing, and you'll probably practice to a couple of set beats, the bp200 should be good enough for you.

    would a drum machine sound fine ran through 60 watt bass amp? Im not asking if it would sound loud... just if it would work..:)
     
  5. a drum manchine would be sweet, Kind of like a robot-guy that plays the drums in your band... Imagine a drum machine that played REAL drums...
    oh the possibilities.
