    Hello talkbass-
    This is my first post and I am looking for info on a good bass amp. I am an absolute beginner on bass, but have been playing guitar for about 20 years. I play both fingerstyle and flatpick guitar, so it's much easier to learn bass as I can apply those same techniques to bass. The biggest challenge will be how to think like a bass player. You guys are f-ing crazy. :) I've been looking for a good practice amp that I can also record with and I am looking at the Hartke HD 75 or the Fender Rumble 100. I won't be gigging on bass so that isn't a concern. Any other suggestions would be welcome as well.

    Hartke makes very nice products and their customer service is legendarily good. That being said, I have a Fender Rumble v3 500 combo and I have tried the 100 and 200. They are incredibly good amps for their weight and the money. They are incredibly light and they offer a very rich and broad tone palette. They can go from deep and warm to growly to a punchy treble. You likely won't be dissapointed with either but I can give a big thumbs up to Fender's v3 Rumble line.

    Just audition and A/B them both, and pick the one you like best. I've only played the V3 Rumble 100, but it has excellent tone with plenty of adjustability.

  5. I have the Harkte HD50 and I think it sounds much better then the V3 like it has a metal grate to proctect your speaker aswell and has amazing warmth with clarity. I play rock mostly and the metal hydrive can handle vintage sounds
