Hi everyone, I just purchased my first bass guitar and am looking for a decent amp to go along with it. I basically want something just for practicing and probably recording also. Should also mention I'll likely be playing with drums/guitar too. I've been looking through amps all day and basically right now I'm looking at these two: Behringer Ultrabass BXL450: Behringer Ultrabass BXL450 45W 1x10" Bass Combo: Shop Bass & Other Musical Instruments | Musician's Friend Acoustic B20: Acoustic B20 1X12 Bass Combo Amplifier: Shop Bass & Other Musical Instruments | Musician's Friend I'm not too inclined on bass amps, and am currently taking a look around on these forums but thought I'd post to get some additional input. I notice the Behringer has quite a bit more power to it: 45W vs. 20W. Besides your basic input right now I'm noticing two things: The Acoustic doesn't seem to have a gain control knob? and also the Behringer doesn't have knobs for bass, mid, and treble? or is that what the FBQ sliders are the equivalent to? Some other stuff I'm wondering about: My friend who plays guitar has a Fender Mustang II which saves preset tones and whatnot...can either of these do that sort of thing? For recording, my friend's Mustang has a USB output that connects to his PC and sounds great. I haven't seen that on any bass amps I've looked at, but I know you can use a 1/4" to 1/8" adapter, does that give decent quality or? and can that be done on the Behringer? It states it directly on the Acoustic but I don't see it on the Behringer. I know thats a lot of questions, but any advice is greatly appreciated, thanks!
