Behringer BX3000T reliability

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by bassman1185, Aug 19, 2004.


  1. I know a few of you in here have Behringer BX3000T (or whatever they're called) heads. I was wondering, now that you've had them for a while, what do you think? Are they reliable? I've had some good experiences with Behringer and some bad ones. I'm considering buying one and pairing it with an Avatar 2x12.

    I love mine, I've only had it for about 6 months, but it has served me very well. For about 3 of the shows my band played with another local band, their bassist used it too, and I never once had a problem with it. I think it's an awesome buy, even if you're not just trying to save money.

    I can't comment on reliability, but I was completely blown away by this amp when I heard it/played through it and a Workingman's 1x15 at Guitar Center...it was amazingly loud and toneful and only $229.99....

    I too am curious about how they hold up.

    I've only had a mine a couple months but have loved it since I got it. Better than the Carvin I had before.

    I usually don't like to color my tone if I can help it but I finally started tweaking and I'm diggin' the Ultrabass function.

    I have one, and I pair it with one of my Avatar 212s for small-medium gigs. It never loses its cool, it sounds damn good, I don't use the octaver unless I'm intentionally being annoying, and I have no problems with it. Plus, it weighs a LOT less than my 1400-watt rack. I can generally get the cab, head, cord bag, mic stand, and bass all in one trip. Everyone loves the way it sounds, and I love the way it didn't hurt my wallet...

    Had it for about six months now, bought it right before they jacked up the price. I have pushed it on a few occassions, so far so good. No need no push it anymore, for bigger gigs I use it as a pre-amp with a QSC power amp. I'm keeping my fingers crossed ;)
     
  8. well i dont have the head but i have owned a thunderbird practise amp for almost 3 years and i havent had a problem, except that a small spark came from the switch, which got replaced, but its going strong after almost every day use
