Anyone know any good bass head for under a grand? not looking for something that loud.
More than you will have fingers and toes for!
care to recommend anything? I can't really specify the genres I play, as I play lots so versitile, and I'm looking for something that I could use in my bedroom as well as gigging.
I'm thinking maybe an Ampeg SVT Micro Bass Head?
Ampeg and GK have some great heads in the price range you are looking at.
Genz Benz ShuttleMax 9.2. You can get these new for ~$1000. Used units go in the $500-$700 range. Lightweight and plenty of tonal options.
Mesa Walkabout perhaps. Doesnt everything cost a fortune in Australia though?
A grand Aussie is well over a US grand these days too.
So many amps, get something with a lot of EQ shaping ability.
I don't trust micro amps as far as I can spit one. If it can't survve being shot to the moon or be fixed in a shed with a soldering iron I don't want it.
Ampeg: SVT-7PRO, PF-800/500/350, Micro-VR.
Genz-Benz: STM-900/600, STL-9.2/6.2.
All are wonderful heads, all are under $1000. They are voiced differently, so you have to decide what voice you want. Personally, I prefer the SVT sound, so I went with an SVT-7PRO, but the GB heads are just as good, maybe even better.
I paid a grand for an SVT 4-Pro. (I think it was from Bass Central, a few years back)
The Aggie TH500 is worth checking out.
G-K 700RB II, 1001RB II, Fusion 550, MB500, MB800, MB Fusion, MB200 (Ampeg is covered).
Hartke LH500, LH1000
its actually harder to think of heads over a grand!... anything from TC, Ashdown, Genz, GK, Hartke, Aguilar will all tickle your toes
Sorry but not much available with that budget...best bet would be used, flea market, stolen...............
Love my LH1000. It's my main onstage amp. Solid, reliable, great old-school tone. Just replace the tube every 6 months if you work it regularly.
How about my Gallien Krueger 700rb I'm selling! It's about 2/3s less than $1000!
You want to ship down under and do the power supply voltage change before it ships?
BTW we are already up to 20 specific amp models keep going
+1000000000000 on the GK 700RB II, it's as loud or quiet as you need it to be, and tone for days.
