    Hello.
    I want to buy a amplificator, and I was to see these:
    - Orange Crush Pix 50BXT/BEQ/BEU/
    - Behringer BXL3000THE Ultrabass
    - Behringer BXL900THE Ultrabass
    Maximum i can spend 300eur. Can i be help you choose, or say a few best within that price? Thank You
     
  2. Go 2nd hand/used. Those amps you list are, I think 50watts-Orange, 90 & 300watts both Behringer amps.
    Behringer have not got a great name in the reliability area. Lots of failed products. But, some do last & so, .......
    The Orange is only really a practise amp. I don't think it'd get loud enough to play with a good drummer.
    What do you want an amp for? Just to hear yourself, or play with drums, guitar etc..?
    I'd look for used amps by GK, Hartke, look for a minimum of 200w & a minimum of either 2x10"speakers, or a 1x15"speaker if playing with others is your goal.

    Hey! you aren't half bad... Good name IMO.

    +1 on rodl's feedback.

    For €300 you can't get 'huge amazing rig' new or used... but you can definitely get a solid combo new or used, or a fairly entry level head and cab new - or probably a decent head and cab used.

    Check out used and new hartke, peavey, gallien kreuger, and others like laney and traynor.
    Your ears are what decides what's good and bad. :bassist:

    Oh and when on stage... try this:
    :D

    Funny but legit. ;)

    Good luck.:hyper:

    Here's google translates version of your post above:

    "thank you
    I have to see it ...
    for now I will not buy spine and head, I'll even buy the amplifier.

    ahahahaha, as the stage I see it xD

    Thanks
    "

    If you have specific models in mind, there is a review section on this site and others you can check for user ratings. These should give you insight into reliability and ruggedness. :D

  12. The Fender only has 40W, whereas the GK has 600W,.... you need as many W's as possible when you play bass... Minimum 200W..... The Fender is a practice amp, and not to play in a band....if you have to choose... go with the Gallien Krueger...

    Yup. GK gear isn't very cheap new - even the entry level stuff.

    There are other options that are only a little outside your budget:

    http://www.thomann.de/ie/gallien_krueger_mb112.htm (which allows powered cabs later)

    is an example. You won't find many decent 200W+ amps for less than 300 EUR. 100W gives you lots more options but generally means a quieter combo - even including relatively large cone area (115 or 210).

    Google translate does blow somewhat. :D
     
  17. I have to agree, this would be a good beginning Combo for you to start off with, and you'll be able to add on later on.... 349EU.. Decent price!!!

    Yep......google translator....

    OP, these guys are giving good advise.

    I'm going to start saying "head" and "spine" instead of "amp" and "speaker". And I'm going to start saying "amplificator" a lot. That's just cool.:D

    In your budget, you might end up with a combo that's too weak. Probably get a good amplificator, or spine for that money, but not both. Get one, save money for the other.
