    read the reviews dude not many nice words being said about this combo if you gonna buy a behringer buy a cheap 60w practice amp
    this thing is putting 450w through 2 tiny 10" cones no wonder the speakers keep blowing i'd save up a few extra penny's and get something a little better like a harke or something
     
  3. Have you read the reviews at the bottom?

    Take the Rumble.

    I'd urge you to get some hands on experience with the amp, if possible. There's a massive anti-Behringer contingent on this board who want to pollute a thread as soon as the "B" word appears, most of whom don't seem to have been near a Behringer product in their lives.

    It doesn't seem to have that great a reputation on Harmony Central http://reviews.harmony-central.com/reviews/Bass+Amp/product/Behringer/BX4210A+210+Combo/10/1, personally I'd say hold on to your money and if Behringer's what you want, get a deal on a head and amp combo.

    take the rumble!!! with those sucky reviews I wouldnt dare to buy that amp. I own a rumble 60 watt i bought it about 5 years ago its a good practice amp the 100 watt should be good enough for live situations go for the rumble dude

    i'm gonna go out on a limb and comment on this without having played it (so sue me)... if you want something that amplifies a bass and can make noise loud enough to be heard, and that's the only thing you want, something with which to hear yourself play in your bedroom, than the SX practice amp would be fine. but from what it looks like, it's probably a 10 watt amp.... won't be built to last, won't get very loud, certainly won't do you any favors tone-wise.

    there are plenty of decent practice amps out there, and if you only want to be able to hear yourself than this is probably an ok deal. but it's not the kind of amp you could use to play with a band or perform live, or even record with unless you really didn't mind lousy tone. the behringer and fender will certainly give more volume than the sx.

    If you figure out what your needs are for an amp (home recording, jam with a guitarist, play a small venue, etc) and determine a budget it'll be a lot easier for people to recommend amps for you.

    I like the reviewer who said that the "Fender Rumble w/ 100 watts and a single 15 could be heard easily next to a peavy stack":D He didn't mention if the Peavey stack was tuned on?:smug:

    As for that amp it sounds like something you should pass on. I played through one of those yesterday at GC. I thought it sounded ok. I don't like aluminum cones but the StingRay and Sterling I was playing through it was sounding pretty ok.

    What exactly are you looking for from an amp? It seems like you have some money burning a hole in your pocket, and not too much idea on what you want out of it.

    I want an amp I can play with a guitarist and drummer at home. I dont want to spend THAT much, because I dont know if im going to stick with bass or not (I think I will).

    All the venues around here have amps I can use (im a drummer and ive played them before).

    So something I can jam out at home w/ a band and still be heard (Its a trio).
     
  12. So basically you want/need is a 100-150W amp, Fender Bassman 150, Line6 LD150, GK Backline 112/115 and so on. Best is to visit a bigger store and look through the various systems and try them out, see if you prefer a 15" or 12" combo amp, if you want or need a bigger than 150W amp, what weight you would prefer, and so on. Get an amp with a decent to good reputation, there's a good chance you want to upgrade later and it's easier to sell amps with a good name. --Kent
