    Sean, I wasn't trying to be rude, I was being funny, hence the :p smiley :p:)

    The new Fender Bassman series are decent solid state amplifiers, good for players on a budget.

    I just happen to prefer the hi-fi tones of Eden and SWR, and am at the point where I can afford them financially.

    No offense intended, OK?

    Can we still be friends?:D

  8. i have a bassman 25 and its pretty good for practice with a guitar player. but i didn't buy it just because you told me to :D
     
  9. I'll just get rid of my '76 SVT and rush right out to get one!:D:D

    At first my post said to get a bassman 60 because it had lots of power and it was cheap ($375. e mail me at metallibass1@aol.com and ill tell you where) i cant tell you now because the moderator (oysterman) said it was an advertisement. (thank you very much!!!)
     
  11. I am another satisfied buyer of the Fender Bassman 100. In my opinion, it beats the hell out of the Ampeg BA-115. Lot of helpful features and even sounds better.

    Hey Sean, it was an unfortunate case of semantics. It hurted my pedantic eyes. I never told you to strip down your post that much, just rephrase it a bit - originally it looked just like a cheap magazine ad.

    One place that has cheap Bassmen is http://www.musiciansfriend.com.

    There. End of story.

    Seems kinda pricey for a 60 watt practice amp. For the same price, you can get an Ampeg B-100R which is a lot more amp. And it's capable of live performance in small - medium venues.

    Yeah, these are pretty nice amps, just got the 25 version (upgrade from my 10 watt). Great sound, would have bought the 60 watt if I weren't so poor.

    its not much of a practice amp. it shakes the walls when its cranked up. it could easily do a small gig.
