    What bass head is the "best"? i know it's a broad term, but thats pretty close to what i mean. also, what combination of amps would you use with it?
     
  2. The Ampeg SVT-3Pro (something else).

    i suppose i should modify that with:
    (best amp head 350-500w) that costs around $500 (used)
     
  6. I don't know U.S. dollar costs on amps very well:rolleyes: , but i like the m-pulse series, and I bet the 250W walkabout is louder than most of the amps listed if it is anything like the 360. Plus the sound is absolutely fantastic. Go with 360 if it's less than $500. If not Walkabout.:cool:

    I have to vote for the Trace Elliot AH500. That's the best - 'cos I only buy the best!!;)

    Of course I'm biased! A close second would be Ashdown amps - they're damned good too!

    Voted "something else" : Ashdown ABM. Quite incredible.
