Combo Help

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Lingering1, Jun 8, 2007.

  1. I am currently looking for a practice combo amp. I normally use a Genz-Benz 250c 115t to give you a sound reference. I will be playing with a medium hitting drummer & guitarist with 100 watt 2x12 combo. We will not be trying to max out the volume or I would just bring the Genz. I am looking at 3 options:

    Line 6 LowDown 150
    Fender Bassman 150
    SWR WorkingPro 112

    Any thoughts on tone, volume, toughness, ect. would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
    I went through the same delema a while back. All 3 are nice amps and each brings something different to the table. I ended up with the fender, it just seamed to give me "the" tone with my particular bass. I got lucky and was able to A/B them at the same time. I recommend try them with YOUR bass and trust your ears.
    hope this helps...smogg
  3. i have allways heard you should at least double the guitarists amp power so get a 200 W. it will also give you more tonespace
  4. I had purchased an Ashdown Electric Blue 12-180 from MF for $250, but then got a notice saying it had been backordered and was now discontinued and not to look forward to getting one. I then narrowed it to the three listed above. I tried the Line 6 and while it is a good amp, the new modeling stuff is not my trip. If I was 15 again and found it under the X-mas tree I would be in love, but today I need more real time sound adjustment. The SWR is also a nice amp. I've never loved the SWR sound, but never hated it either. This amp is no different. Which bring us to the Fender. I love this amp!! It just ended up having everything I needed and tone and booty to boot!! Mine should ship today, so I'll give a more thorough review after I thump it a bit :bassist:
