AMP ADVICE

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by The Artist, Aug 16, 2002.


  1. Can enyone here recommend a powerfull, but not too Xpencive bass amp. I currently own a 25W Fender bassman and it sucks for band practice.

    Thanks ahead

    What's "expensive" for you and kind what amplification are you competing with??? Marshall stacks or a 1x12 Crate for instance???

    (Yeah, a 25W Bassman is a bedroom amp for bass).
     
  3. Let's say up to 700 dollars (Euros).
    How much could I get for my currant amp?

    Cheers

    Since your profile contains no location info, I didn't know you aren't located in the USA.

    I don't have any idea what pricing is like wherever you live. Sorry.

    Are you from Germany? I think so.

    If you can, try a Laney Richter or Peavey TNT. You should be able to find them below 700Euro.

    The TNT is a great combo and I haven't played the Richter, but I do like the older laney bass amps (I think they were called "linebacker".)

    You can easily find a good +150W combo for that money. Or look for something used.

    Good luck,
    Awesome
