Other than Thunderfunk, are there any other company that specialize only on bass amps?
Eden have cabinets as well so they're not a bass amp only manufacturer.
I figured since they are bass cabinets, that's what you meant.
well, i googled a little and found this
although i dont know how many of those are JUST bass amp manufacturers.
is there any particular reason behind your search?
LOL I was about to post Aguilar but apparently it doesn't fit your criteria...I think I speak for everyone when I say what in the wild world of sports do ya wanna know that for?
Thanks for the responses so far.
It's just that since I'm currently looking to change my rig and have owned so much different amps and cabinets and being that i'M still not satisfied, i'm looking at every possibility available.
So I was thinking to try and go for companies that have expertise in a very narrow field of production so that they are specialists in what they do just like Bergantino for cabs and Thunderfunk for amps.
I will then try and test some configs among those and see what results i can achieve.
Ummm...last I checked Bergantino sells powered cabs so that would take him off your list.
That's a tough question but I understand your rationale. Thunderfunk is the only one that comes to mind. Definitely try a TF...they're really good amps.
On a side note, I wouldn't overlook any companies that concentrate on both bass amps and bass cabs only. ie. Aguilar, Eden, Epifani, EBS, etc. Amps & Cabs - the two go hand in hand like Burger and fries. Besides, that's these company's expertise...Bass amplification and cabinets.
Euphonic Audio? Bass only, amps, cabs, and combos.
Guitars are not allowed to be plugged in.
Walter Woods. But I don't understand why you would disenfranchise some of the best amps available just because they make cabs. For example, Aguilar and Glockenklang, and some might argue Mesa or even Ampeg.
In fact, I prefer companies that make both because they can build their components to complement each other. So I don't get your rationale.
It reminds me of the time my company was looking to buy (actually lease) a copier, and we were talking to the Konica guy. He asked if we were looking at other companies, and we mentioned, among others, Minolta. He said, "Oh, you don't want to buy Minolta ... they make too many other things, like cameras and lenses and stuff!" I had to ask him if he didn't think Minolta's expansive experience in optics would be beneficial in designing copiers. Anyway, I think they merged a number of years ago.
um.....it's not the pencil but,the writer.....
I think he means, "it's not the amp you use but how well/what you play." Am I even close bassman?
Perhaps, but I'll tell you that I sound a hell of a lot better through my Glockenklang rig than I ever did through my Peavey 115 Combo.
Gallien Krueger? Yeah, they also make cabinets, but everything about the company is bass specific.
If you are not happy with the many bass amps you have owned perhaps you should think of trying the pre + power amp route. a good stereo power amp is very clean, powerful and comparatively cheap. Pre-amps can be found that have just a volume control and no tubes to the same with tubes all the way to fully featured control panels. If you like effects or emulation they are available too.
Most importantly to this particular threads rather bizarre scenario, there's lots more preamp/poweramp choices by manufacturers that aren't saddled with the undaunting task of also building cabs...
Wouldn't it make more sense to go with a company that has the whole product rather than just one half of it?
A useable amp has the amp and a cabinet.The cabinet is as much of the tone as the amp is.
My susggestion would be Ampeg.
They invented the bass amp.
No they did not, they invented the SVT! There were bass specific amps prior to that time.
