Okay, my BX3000T came in on Saturday, and I spent the better part of Sunday and Monday tweaking it. I must say over all I'm quite happy. The good.... I could start with the price, but that's been beaten to death. I'd rather start with the audible reasons why I'm glad I bought this amp. For one, this baby is LOUD! I was surprised at how much louder the BX3000T's 300 watts were into my homebrew speakers than other amps I have at my disposal. During A/B tests of the BX3000T against a GK 700RB and an Ashdown ABM-500 (both borrowed), it seemed louder, with more presence, than either of the other two! Maybe I've just gotten lucky on the cab/speaker combination (2 vented Paradise cabs, 2 8 ohm Eminence Kappa 12's) but this baby has headroom to spare! I was very concerned about the obvious coloration of the BX3000T, and how it would sound under a load (with a full band.) I must say that when the band levels finally overtook my original settings, all I had to do was hit the "Deep" switch and BAM! I was sonically in-the-pocket again. The really neat part is that now I truly have headroom to match just about anything (within reasonable limits) in the clubs that I play. Another nice touch is the "Ultra Bass". Basically just an octave below the note (usable to about A, any lower and it starts to crap out) I won't use it much, but it could sure be handy in a pinch for a lead up the neck. Another feature is the "Shape" knob, which when turned gives you a sweep to radically change your sound on the fly (or quickly setup a second bass) both of these work off a supplied foot switch. The bad.... The first thing I noticed after setting everything flat and plugging in was the noise! When A/B testing with the GK there is no comparison, the GK is hella quieter. But with the ABM-500, I got the SAME noise!! Obviously Behringer was very accurate in their supposed "reproduction" of the Ashdown ABM, cuz they nailed the noise perfectly!! Also, the GK is "colorless" what goes in - comes out with not much influence. The BX3000T, on the other hand, sonically reminds me of the Ashdown ABM series, a lot of coloration on the bottom end, with a low end robustness that may not be desired (especially with my standup ...but I haven't yet plugged it in to the BX3000T.) One more thing, it's surprisingly heavy. 30 lbs to haul around, but it's in a frontless/backless case, seems pretty well built, but almost twice the weight of the GK! The Ugly..... A lot of people are turning their noses up at this product because it bears a striking resemblance to the Ashdown amp, and quite possibly was re-engineered from the Ashdown design. I don't know that for a fact, but I do know that a decent Ashdown is gonna cost you around a grand, and even though they are superbly built and meticulously R&D'd, I don't have that kind of money ...But I do have $199.00, and you can buy this from various online dealers, some without shipping and tax ...and a 30 day satisfaction guarantee to boot! Also, it should be noted that I have not gigged with this unit yet, nor have I had to deal with customer service. All of the comments I have made above are initial impressions (having only had the unit for three days!) I felt it was necessary to get this info out seeing that there were tons of people interested but no one buying and posting. In conclusion.... I've been playing for 27 years on a semi-professional level (just can't seem to shake that day job!) I do not work for Behringer, or any dealer. Simply put, this amp is going to make my life a lot easier and it didn't hairlip me to buy it. But I reserve the right to append my comments if the need arises. Hope this helps.
