    hey hey, i was looking at the Fender Bassman 100, Ampeg BA 115 and the GK backline 250. My band plays lots of shows, but nothing huge. I was just wondering if any of you had any expieriene with these amps and which one you would reccomend. Right now i'm leaning towards the Fender. Thanks a lot

    I just purchased a GK 400RB112. Not on your list but it has a good sound and plenty of volume. I bought it from Musicians Friend for $499.

    GK400RB112 is a combo. It has 150W to the 12 or you can add an ext. cab and it has 240W.

    i used to own an SWR workingmans15 .. i would highly reccomend it. 160watts / 200 with an 8ohm speaker cab. i loved it. great tone. i got mine used for under $500. i never had the chance to try adding a speaker cab but adding a 2x10 would be pretty cool. plenty loud without a cab though, plus it has a direct out so you can plug into the PA.

    good luck

    I liked the Bassman 100 so much that I spent a little extra and got the Bassman 200 instead.
