    I've had plenty of gear over the past decade, but the B-100r is one I keep.

    For practice, I have the little brother to it, the B50R. I'll always keep it. If it dies, I'll get another. For tone I love it.

    I've had mine for over a year now. Still love it. Great amp, great choice. For the price, there isn't a better amp to be had, IMHO.
     
  7. Bass NW gave me a good quote for the B100R, but I'm still debating whether I want the B100R or the BA115.

    The B100 is a gem. It's on of the best combos you can buy. The BA115 has more features but is lacking a little in the tone department IMHO :)

    yea... and the ba115 has a lot of hissing... the b100r has no hissing... even tho it doesnt have a tweeter... it has pretty sweet highs...
